SIHH is a good time for some reasons. It’s an extraordinary spot to find our kindred columnists from everywhere the world. It’s additionally incredible to experience the current year’s buzz from the Richemont brands. To wrap things up SIHH is an astounding encounter for devotees of the free thinkers. These brands often have restricted promoting spending plans compared to the huge names like Cartier, Panerai or Audemars Piguet (additionally free obviously). They don’t often arrange immense occasions, and press roadshows around the planet. Along these lines, seeing them and really their entire staff together in one spot is more or less uncommon. More significant than that, obviously, are the curiosities they are bringing to the show every year. H.Moser  & Cie is among those uncommon brands. Furthermore, what they brought to the show this year worked up the water. I’m discussing the Blue Lagoon of course.

H.Moser & Cie

Who has not heard the name Moser previously? No, I don’t mean investigator Richard Moser (played by Austria’s incredible Tobias Moretti) in the religion TV arrangement Rex: A Cop’s Best Friend. I’m discussing a cutting-edge, youthful watch brand from Switzerland, directly across the boundary from Germany, in Schaffhausen. You need to recollect 4 dates; 1805 Henrik Moser is naturally introduced to a watchmaking family who builds up the brand in 1828 in St. Petersburg, Russia (indeed, you read it right). 2005, H.Moser & Cie (as far as we might be concerned today) is restored and gets back to Schaffhausen. Finally, 2012 is the point at which the Meylan Family assumes control over the brand beginning another time both for Moser and for the free watch industry. A great deal of things occurred in the middle, which we may discuss at some other point. Until further notice, we should remain with the last date and the Meylan family.

The Meylan family has 1,000 connections to the watch business. Nonetheless, that, but helpful and useful, is all previously. Edouard Meylan, CEO of H.Moser & Cie, in any case, isn’t somebody who is investigating the past. Or maybe into what’s to come. He is a charming and youthful pioneer, somebody who appears to have a response for everything. Edouard is additionally an extremely charming person to be near, despite the fact that his outward appearance may make you suspect something – sorry Edouard, I’m similar to that as well so know how it is. Under his initiative, the brand put foot on a way that is trying and unique in relation to numerous others in this industry. After a seemingly endless amount of time after year they bring something remarkable, something else both as an idea watch and part of their assortment. Moser does this while as yet remaining consistent with their plan. Their 2019 SIHH curiosity, the H.Moser & Cie Blue Lagoon is such a timepiece.

Endeavour Center Seconds Concept Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon watches I had the opportunity to find in Geneva this previous month are important for the Endeavor assortment. There’s a differentiation between the customary Endeavor models and Concept pieces. As you can see by the title, the Blue Lagoon falls under the last classification. Idea H. Moser & Cie pieces are unadulterated Haute Horlogerie watches with no logo, numerals or some other signs on the dial. There’s no requirement for that. The watch, its looks, and configuration represent. Itself. Moser’s mark, fumé dial, is the primary component of the Endeavor Center Seconds Concept Blue Lagoon. Fumé dials have an uncommon sparkle, cleaned, glossy silk completed look with sunburst design. The Blue Lagoon’s tone is turquoise, that looks blue from one point and green from another. As indicated by Moser the Blue Lagoon’s face is “bringing out the waters of the jungles”. Can’t concur more.  It is an entrancing tone indeed.

White/Red Gold

While the fumé dial is undeniably the most conspicuous component of the Endeavor Center Seconds Concept Blue Lagoon, its case is additionally something unmistakable. At 40mm in width and just 10.7mm in thickness, the watch is scarcely viewed as huge. Clearly 40mm isn’t little, however as Moser puts it, the Blue Lagoon is a “intense, provocative and contemporary” watch. One can pick between 2 case materials, both in valuable metal; white or red gold, both in 18k. The white gold is reference 1200-0206 in spite of the fact that in the event that you extravagant a smidgen more “bling” and need to go for the red gold variant you need to search for reference 1200-0404. I’m an unpretentious person so my form is the white gold. In spite of the fact that I need to say that the Blue Lagoon’s tone is to such an extent that works impeccably with the two golds. Other than the materials the two references are indistinguishable in looks, sizes or movement.

HMC 200

Speaking of developments. As you’d anticipate from a Haute Horlogerie watch, the H. Moser & Cie Blue Lagoon has a production development. It is a type that is planned, created and delivered totally in-house. This is conceivable with the assistance of Precision Engineering AG, a sister company of H. Moser & Cie. The HMC 200 is a self-twisting type with at least 3 days of force hold, programmed bi-directional pawl-winding framework and a recurrence of 21,600 vph. The development has 27 gems, enhanced with the alleged Moser Stripes. A protected adornment by H. Moser & Cie like Geneva stripes, Moser Stripes where thicker and more slender lines follow one another. The HMC has basic capacities; it shows the hours and minutes with a focal seconds hand.

More thoughts

The H. Moser & Cie Endeavor Center Seconds Concept Blue Lagoon comes on a hand-sewed dim (white gold) or cognac earthy colored (red gold) croc cowhide lash with a coordinating pin clasp. The presentation case back permits us to see the delightful HMC 200 type moving. The cost of the watch will be €21,000. Moser will deliver various 50 pieces in both case materials. While my inclination requires a touch more plan than a super moderate piece, like this one, I unquestionably can comprehend Moser’s perspective that went into the Blue Lagoon. It is anything but a regular watch, not that you would come across numerous Moser watches in your every day life. It’s an assertion piece for the brand, something they created for the authorities who purchase Moser for the sheer feel and craftsmanship. For that, notwithstanding, it is an ideal choice.
