H. Moser & Cie. brings a big date to the Venturer Purity

Putting legibility first, the Schaffhausen watchmaker has opted for an outsize window for its instantaneous date. It fits beautifully onto the clean dial – just four indices – of the Venturer Purity small seconds. The date can be adjusted forwards or backwards at any time.

The Venturer Big Date Purity sits halfway between the watches in the Concept series, which have neither logos nor indices, and standard models: its dial is equipped with four main indices at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, as well as the Moser logo. Punctuating the dial, the indices subtly balance the piece as a whole, with the date and small second in perfect harmony. Showcased by the curved sapphire crystal and the refined bezel, the dials on the Venturer Big Date Purity models are the most popular in its catalogue: Funky Blue for the white gold model, and traditional fumé – now the company’s signature – on the red gold version. To offset the classicism of the Venturer Big Date Purity, H. Moser & Cie. has chosen a raw kudu leather strap to add a rugged touch to the white gold model. On the red gold model, a chocolate coloured kudu leather strap adds warmth to the fumé dial.

With its 41.5mm diameter case, the Venturer Big Date Purity has an imposing presence yet retains its harmonious proportions. It is equipped with the hand-wound HMC 100 Manufacture calibre, with a power reserve of up to 10 days. Featuring the Flash Calendar mechanism, this movement ensures an instantaneous date change at midnight and allows the date to be smoothly adjusted forwards or backwards at any time. It is equipped with two stacked date discs, the upper disc bearing the numbers 1 to 15 and the lower disc bearing 16 to 31. Thanks to this ingenious system, each number is also perfectly centred in the window located at 3 o’clock. There is no risk of changing the time when the date is being set as it is necessary to pull out the crown, briefly release it, and then pull it out a second time to adjust the time on the watch. The Venturer Big Date Purity is available in a limited edition of 50 pieces for the red gold model and 50 pieces for the white gold model.
