BECOMES PRECIOUS: THE VENTURER SMALL SECONDS XL PURITY FROM H. MOSER
Neuhausen am Rheinfall
Cosmic green is the latest colour to be
added to the H. Moser & Cie. collection. This audacious green,
reminiscent of the jewel tones of the Northern Lights, continues in the
spirit of the famed Funky Blue dial which has become both the brand's
signature, and key to its reputation.
This colourway is featured on the
Venturer Small Seconds XL Purity, an elegant watch which, at 43 mm, has
the largest diameter offered by H. Moser & Cie.
With a distinctive
character, it advocates a return to the essential, illustrating the
minimalist philosophy that "Less is More" with a dial that has
no logo and features only the 4 main indices. Once again, H. Moser &
Cie. has proven that authenticity can provide a power and dynamism which
is rarely achieved.
Taking the best from
the Concept Series and the other H. Moser watch families, the dial on the
Venturer Small Seconds XL Purity features indices at 12, 3, 6 and 9
o'clock. The logo is still absent, demonstrating the power of an iconic
product: one glance at the fumé dial is enough to recognise the elegant
yet sexy aesthetic of an H. Moser watch.
The beauty of the fumé dial
shines through, unimpeded, further enhanced by the domed sapphire
crystal, the exquisite bezel and the 43 mm diameter. As custom in haute
horlogerie, and a tradition for H. Moser & Cie. watches since 1828,
the company signature and hallmark appear on the movement side, a subtle
reminder of its heritage.
H. Moser & Cie.
enjoys combining design cues to create an unexpected effect. To subtly
offset the classicism of the Venturer Small Seconds XL Purity, a raw kudu
leather strap has been chosen to add a rugged touch to the watch.
shrewd choice by H. Moser & Cie. creates a classical model in the
Haute Horlogerie style, but one designed for a modern audience, mavericks
with their finger on the pulse of our times, looking for a compelling
watch unlike any other.
At the heart of the
Venturer Small Seconds XL Purity, with the convex shapes typical of the
1960s and design inspired by historic H. Moser pocket watches, beats an
HMC 327 hand-wound Manufacture calibre. Visible through the sapphire
case-back, the movement has a power reserve of at least 3 days which is
shown in an indicator on the reverse side of the watch.

XL Purity Cosmic Green is available in a limited edition of 50 pieces.
