Unprecedented colour for H. Moser & Cie.

Paying homage to the ancient technique of enamelling and bringing it up to date, H. Moser & Cie. revisits its smoky dials and offers a new lime-green colour for the Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept. To achieve such a result, one starts with a gold base, on which a grained pattern is made, as if hammered, colour pigments are applied in three different gradations, previously washed and then ground very finely. The enameller needs about an hour of work to gently deposit the pigments, arranging them one by one, so that the colours oxidise and blend together, without, however, creating the pixel effect as they pass through the kiln. In total, 12 firing steps are required in order to obtain a translucent grand feu enamel dial with H. Moser & Cie's famous smoky effect.

Inside the stainless-steel case of the new Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept Lime Green, 40 mm in diameter, beats the self-winding HMC 200 calibre. Conceived, developed and manufactured entirely in-house, this movement is equipped with a regulating organ made by Precision Engineering AG, the sister company of H. Moser & Cie. It consists of a double balance spring, identifiable by its violet seconds hand and blue balance bridge. Embellished with Moser's famous double côtes, the calibre features a large engraved oscillating weight and guarantees a power reserve of at least three days. The grey kudu leather strap lends the finishing touch to this creation, for a modern and extravagant result.
