We’re midway by way of the thirteenth month of 2020, or a minimum of it feels that method. What higher antidote to all of this (/me gesticulates wildly) than to solid our eyes upon the most recent murals from Moser: a restricted version “electrical blue” repeater going by the title of Endeavour.
Says H. Moser & Cie:
H. Moser & Cie. is orchestrating a blinding ballet beneath a framework of titanium: hammers, chimes and a flying tourbillon spin in concord on the dial of the Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater Tourbillon. To enable the passage of time to be each heard and admired, the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture is displaying this complicated mechanism which sounds the hours on the dial facet, choreographed in opposition to a brand-new shade, Electric Blue, and stripped of emblem and indices. A welcome return again to fundamentals, this purist method permits all the great thing about the complication to be expressed with none pointless parts.
It’s restricted to twenty items worldwide and prices 330,000 Swiss francs (roughly $370,000 USD), which doubtless means none of us right here at WristWatchReview can be including it to our watchbox anytime quickly. But, that doesn’t imply we are able to’t recognize the craftsmanship, and ding-ding-ding, from afar.
