Back to the future for this H. Moser & Cie. Heritage watch

A watch with a vintage inflection that is also very much of the moment thanks to innovative Globolight®, a ceramic compound, and SuperLumiNova®.

In creating the Heritage line, H. Moser & Cie. took inspiration from the watches that evoke the brand’s history from 1828 to the present day, and specifically those dating from the early 20th century. The Heritage Centre Seconds Funky Blue is a beautifully rounded model with classic touches. Its steel case features tapered lugs and a notched crown. And, because tradition at H. Moser & Cie never means dull or fusty, behind the classic façade of this watch lies an emphatically irreverent aesthetic brought by the electric blue dial. The traditional railway style minute track is in white for a contemporary contrast, while the sword-shaped hands are highlighted with Super-LumiNova®. The oversized appliqué numerals recall the sports watches of the 1900s, but these use Globolight®, an innovative ceramic-based material containing Super-LumiNova® that can adopt any shape or colour. To further break with traditional codes, the strap in raw leather features white stitching to add one last finishing touch to this creation. The Heritage Centre Seconds is an Haute Horlogerie piece that draws from a broader palette. It is a traditional yet timeless model in a steel case, which blurs boundaries and is impossible to sum up in a single word.

Visible behind the sapphire case-back, the HMC 200 movement is the driving force behind the Heritage Centre Seconds Funky Blue. This calibre, entirely designed, developed and produced in-house, is equipped with a regulating organ manufactured by H. Moser & Cie.’s sister company, Precision Engineering AG. Decorated with the famous Moser double stripes, the HMC 200 calibre offers a minimum power reserve of 3 days.
