H. Moser & Cie The Essence Of The Russian Emperor First Tourbillon

In order to show the essence of its corporate brand, H. MOSER & CIE. Has created this high-end watch integrating rare elements-Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time. The self-winding movement HMC 802 uses the first tourbillon developed by H. MOSER & CIE. What sets it apart is the two watch components developed exclusively by H. MOSER & CIE. The first is the Straumann Double Hairspring®, which can further improve the precision and isochronism of the new self-made movements, and the technical level. Secondly, H. MOSER & CIE.’S interchangeable tourbillon module can reduce maintenance difficulty through its unique structure. This accomplishes: the perfect combination of elegant appearance and powerful functions.

The crown bears the ‘M’ logo of H. MOSER & CIE., And the arcs of the frosted and forged areas add a finishing touch to the highly polished curved side of the case.

Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time is a rare and rare watch. Its design incorporates elements from traditional pocket watches and the Bauhaus period of the 1920s, and uses the convex crystal glass of the 1960s watch. The various features and functions of the watch originated from Henry. Moser’s career in St. Petersburg, Russia. At that time, young Moser created a functional pocket watch for the royal family.
The Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time’s incomparable dial curves along the arc of a sapphire crystal bezel toward its surface edge, accentuating its finish. The arc of the dovetailed hands complements the contour of the dial. The slender applique hour markers, together with the gold hour and minute hands, clearly show the time. The bottom of the dial is stepped down, and a chamfering process is used between the two surfaces to highlight the two layers of the dial. The resulting style is exquisite. With the minute tourbillon at 6 o’clock, you can’t help but marvel at the internal structure of the self-winding movement. The homemade movement HMC 802 is clearly visible behind the polished skeleton gold tourbillon bridge. The crystal glass mirror projects the dial and tourbillon with a convex contour. The watch offers a dual time zone function and the additional red hands show the travel time when needed. In keeping with H. Moser’s understated personality, the red hands can be hidden by the crown when not needed.
Automatic winding movement HMC 802 – the world’s first
HMC 802 debuted with the Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time. This movement represents another milestone for H. MOSER & CIE. This is a masterpiece of this entrepreneurial company showing its extraordinary craftsmanship and superb technology. The Tourbillon Dual Time is equipped with a minute tourbillon, dual time zone function and a convenient automatic winding system. It operates at a frequency of 21,600 vibrations / hour. The unique construction of the Moser interchangeable tourbillon module includes the Straumann Double Hairspring®. In fact, it is the latter that makes the HMC 802’s inherent precision and isochronism even higher. H. MOSER & CIE. Interchangeable tourbillon module achieves the world’s premier HMC 802 movement, and fully exerts the ‘horse and air’ style of creativity. This module uses a simple ‘plug system’ to achieve assembly and adjustment independent of the movement, which simplifies the maintenance of professional watchmakers without the need to master the tourbillon expertise.
The tourbillon was born in the eighteenth century and was originally used in pocket watches. This complex device counteracts the effects of gravity. This enhances the accuracy of the watch while maintaining it in a vertical plane. This principle has been used to this day. However, the watch will remain in multiple positions in daily use, so the traditional tourbillon will lose some of its advantages. Straumann Double Hairspring® cleverly optimizes precision with a pair of matched springs. No matter the position of the watch, the effect of gravity on the balance spring will be offset by the relative balance spring. This keeps the center of gravity in the middle of the hairspring, which improves accuracy. In addition, the paired Straumann Hairsprings® can reduce the friction effect commonly encountered by a single hairspring, thereby improving isochronism. A tourbillon more suitable for the needs of 21st century wearers was born.

Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time short lug design with hand-stitched crocodile leather strap and 18K yellow gold folding buckle makes the love watch more secure and comfortable to your wrist

H. MOSER & CIE. And its sister company Precision Engineering AG jointly developed the key components of the movement, which is located in the same location in Neuhausen am Rheinfall, specializing in the development and production of balance springs and escapements . This innovative double hairspring technology is used in other limited edition H. MOSER & CIE. Watches. To allow the movement to be wound automatically, the two-way pawl winding system transfers energy from the 18K pure gold balance to the barrel. The system can wind the mainspring no matter which direction it is turned, which can reduce the time required for the watch to be full. HMC 802 has a power reserve of at least 3 days. The red gold balance wheel bears the H. MOSER & CIE. Company logo and uses a hollow-out process to give a clear view of the movement below. The rhodium-plated movement includes a chamfered craft bridge, decorated with the iconic H. MOSER & CIE. Stripes and gold engraving. There is a delicate gap between the bridges, so that you can better appreciate the polka-dot grinding wheels of the drive train, so that purists are fascinated by the flawless decoration of the movement. The outstanding modular design of the tourbillon, the hollow tourbillon bridge and the screw-adjustable balance fully prove the meticulousness of the HMC 802 in the creation process.
H. MOSER & CIE. Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time has a handsome and exquisite appearance, while condensing complex mechanical structures between square inches. It controls a variety of sophisticated devices designed to enhance the functionality of a watch. The ingenious mechanical structure has improved accuracy, isochronism and ease of maintenance, and the exquisite craftsmanship has always made it hard for them. In fact, it is this series of characteristics that makes this watch rare and hard to find.
