Press Release: The H. Moser & Cie Venturer XL Concept Dubai Edition

with an all new fumé color
by Chester Lau on November 19, 2016

H. Moser & Cie. will release the Venturer XL Concept Dubai Edition to commemorate its partnership with luxury retailer Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons. This edition joins the H. Moser & Cie. Concept Series that was first unveiled in Baselworld 2015. The Concept series was famed for its daring ‘unbranded’ dial, testament of stoic minimalism.

The new edition now features a ice-blue fumé dial in blue and white and is limited to 9 pieces.

The H. Moser & Cie Venturer XL Concept Dubai Edition in steel with a white and blue fumé dial, beige kudu leather strap with Moser green leather lining, limited edition of 9 pieces

 

Conceived with the idea of using neither indices nor logo, the Endeavour Concept Series puts the watch in the spotlight and promotes an unmistakeable luxury with a refined, understated approach. In this way, H. Moser & Cie. demonstrates that a true luxury product requires no brand identifier. This is the first Venturer model that H. Moser & Cie. has developed for the Concept Series. The clean lines and design inspired by the company’s antique pocket watches enhance the pure beauty of the Concept dial.

The hand wound watch measures 43 mm in diamter and 12.6 mm in height. When fully wound, the watch has approximately 3 days power reserve and beats at 18,000 vph.

 

A manual winding watch with a 3 days power reserve, the H. Moser & Cie Venturer XL Concept Dubai Edition is a classic time only watch cased on the larger side. It measures 43 mm in diameter and 12.6 mm in height; a size larger than the previous Endeavour concept watch that came in at 40.8mm x 10.9mm. Interesting to note too, is that the Endeavour used a 7 day power reserve HMC 343 manual winding movement; essentially a smaller sized watch with more than twice the power reserve.

Beneath the curved sapphire crystal sits a white and blue fumé dial with sunburst pattern. Leaf-shaped hour and minute hands with contrasting finish.

 

That said, the larger case and resulting wider dial gives the artisan more room to fumé the dial. The end product is a beautiful contrast spectrum with a darker blue edge and an inner white. This new dial colour was developed in partnership with Mr. Mohammed Abdulmagied Sediqqi. The Venturer XL Concept Dubai Edition is a limited edition of 9 pieces. The timepiece will be launched to coincide with Dubai Watch Week. Price TBA.
