The new Endeavour Perpetual Calendar from H. Moser & Cie. stands out not only for its complex movement, but also for its absolute simplicity.
Without multiple sub-dials or an illegible date disc: the indices show not only the hours, but also the months, using a small central hand. A very large date window at 3 o’clock with a new date design and a power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock complete the piece, making it the most legible and easy-to-set watch available, as it can be adjusted forwards or backwards at any time of day.
The HMC 800 calibre is housed in a new Endeavour case, whose lines have been adapted to increase the diameter beyond the 40.8mm model. Measuring 42mm, this case has a more dynamic look while still resting elegantly on the wrist thanks to its curved case-back.
The Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Purity pushes H. Moser’s minimalist philosophy even further: the dial has indices only at 12 and 6 o’clock and there is no visible logo or brand name.
With its magnificent and mysterious midnight-blue fumé dial, this model remains immediately recognisable, proving that true luxury is unmistakable, even without ostentatious branding.
As with all new H. Moser & Cie. models produced from January 1, 2017, this watch does not feature the Swiss Made label on the dial as the Schaffhausen-based manufacture, whose creations are over 95% Swiss, does not consider the label sufficiently rigorous.
