THE REINTERPRETATION OF A 19TH CENTURY POCKET WATCH !
The history of H.MOSER & CIE (founded by HEINRICH MOSER in 1828) is huge! Among many creations and entrepreneurial projects, EDOUARD MEYLAN (CEO of H.MOSER & CIE) found an original H.MOSER pocket watch dating from the late 19th century.
The original piece is Marvelous (pictures below)! It’s amazing to see the placement of all diamonds and the meticulous decoration of the case. Even then the visual approach/effect was important and to reach such quality, there is no doubt that deep know-how was within the original team.
Fortunately, a reinterpretation of the pocket watch is available in a limited edition of 10 pieces. As mentioned, the HERITAGE TOURBILLON is a reinterpretation so H.MOSER & CIE decided to produce a wrist timepiece inspired by the original pocket watch.
The overall execution is accurate and very high end oriented. The case is made of two Red Gold & Blue enamel covers with the original diamond figure (on the front) and the guilloché engravings. Both covers can be opened allowing the owner to see the time and the back of the caliber HMC 802 (and its nice Red Gold oscillating weight). An exceptional piece needs an exceptional « Heart » so yes, a 60 seconds Tourbillon is at 6 o’clock.
We love the proposition and how the HERITAGE TOURBILLON fits today’s world holding a strong link with the past.
Congratulations! H.MOSER & CIE.
