Baselworld 2016: H. Moser & Cie. Venturer Big Date

by Robin Lim on March 15, 2016

H. Moser & Cie. is synonymous with legibility and dressiness, and the Venturer collection is no exception to that. The Venturer Big Date probably epitomizes some of the ethos of the Neuhausen-based watchmaker, with its elegant and practical touches. This year, we are pleased to announce that there will be two new references for the Venturer Big Date.

 

One of the two new references for the Venturer Big Date. This one features the midnight-blue fumé dial.

These two new references, notably, are cased in white gold. They feature two different dial options as well: one with a white lacquered dial with Roman numerals, and the other that features a midnight-blue fumé dial with baton indices.

The watch is powered by H. Moser & Cie.’s HMC 100. It is an in-house produced hand-wound movement that features a power reserve of approximately 10 days, thanks to itsdouble barrels. It is also fitted with the iconic Flash Calendar mechanism, which allows the date to be switched instantaneously at midnight precisely. In addition, it possesses the stacked date disc that allows the date to be centered in the indicator window at all dates. On top of that, the system also simultaneously allows both backward and forward adjustments of the date without running the risk of damaging the caliber.

The 41.5mm timepiece retains it retro and classic design, especially with its thin bezel and the gentle convex crystal. For the lacquered white dial variant, it is further accentuated with the blued steel hands. Finally, the watch will be paired with a hand-stitched black alligator strap and a matching white gold pin buckle.

The recommended retail price for the H. Moser & Cie. Venturer Big Date is CHF 29,900. Please check out their website here for more info, as well as the awesome Youtube video below!
