Pre-SIHH 2016: H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Concept

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Not too long back, we have done a review article on the thought-provoking Endeavour Concept Watch. The Endeavour Concept Watch is a timepiece that is completely devoid of any details on the dial, with the watch face featuring only the watchmaker’s signature fumé sunburst dial with three watch hands. Following that, H. Moser & Cie. had decided to up the ante by producing a perpetual calendar timepiece using the same ideology and concept.

Now, let us have a short history lesson on H. Moser & Cie.’s Endeavour Perpetual Calendar. When this particular timepiece was launched around a decade ago, it took the horological world by storm. It had practically achieved what no other watchmakers had managed to do so, by creating a perpetual calendar that is so minimalist and clean on the dial. It features a date window at the 3 o’clock position, a power reserve indicator at the 9 o’clock position, and a month indicator that is subtly represented by an arrow hand at the center of the dial. To an untrained eye, they might not even realise that this watch features the perpetual calendar complication, as the watch does not feature any sub-dials on the watch face! Notably, its ingenious design had landed H. Moser & Cie a prize in the 2006’s edition of the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix (GPHG).

Well, to commemorate the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar’s 10th Anniversary, H. Moser & Cie. had decided to make the timepiece even simpler. Similar to the Endeavour Concept Watch, H. Moser & Cie. had stripped almost everything away from the fumé sunburst dial. What had remained are the date indicator, the power reserve indicator, the month indicator, as well as the two hands that tell the time. This is simply minimalism at its finest.

The H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Concept is a limited edition timepiece, and only 10 pieces are produced in 18-carat white gold. Each of them will be paired with a magnificent beige kudu leather strap, in which it will also be fitted with a solid 18-carat white gold pin buckle. We reckon that this intriguing timepiece is going to be a hit with many current collectors of H. Moser & Cie. watches, as this watch is the epitome of both functionality and simplicity- the very same values and fundamentals that are the basis of each and every H. Moser & Cie watches that we all adore.

  1. Hi Robin, I think the folks at Moser & Cie has gone one step too far by removing all markers on the dial. Case in point the year marker in the above photo – is that pointing at June… or is it a little towards July? If they had wanted a minimalist approach, it would have made more sense to just remove the power reserve just like they have with the subsidiary seconds hands.

    • Eddie, thanks for your comments…appreciate it…but for me, I think it works. The totally clean dial is magnificent and all that is needed. Less is more.
