H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Aventurine Watch

H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Aventurine Watch Watch Releases The H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Vantablack watch was one of the starkest moon phase watches I’ve ever seen, but the brand has added some sparkle to this line with their latest release. The new H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Aventurine watch is the brand’s latest release, being offered in steel or red gold each limited to 50 pieces.

2019 has quietly been a banner year for aventurine dial watches, with the Arnold & Son HM Perpetual Moon Aventurine and Hermes Arceau L’Heure De La Lune being notable standouts. Where the Moser stands out is in offering its particular brand of minimalism cut with the inherent shimmer of aventurine. It’s hard to judge the execution by the press shots, but considering how Moser operates, I have a feeling the end product will live up to expectations. I can’t wait to check out this piece in person.

The 42mm-wide case has a thin bezel, leaving most of the room for the dial. Other than the large moon phase at 6 o’clock and the leaf-shaped hands, the dial is left blank to let the aventurine have the spotlight. Just as with the Vantablack version, Moser makes sure the material both gets the dial space largely uninterrupted but also thematically fits with the moon phase. The Vantablack played on the theme of darkness, while the aventurine plays on the theme of light brought by stars at night. In my opinion, it’s the height of taste in contemporary watchmaking.

The HMC 801 manufacture movement is a manual-wind that features Moser’s interchangeable escapement and Straumann Hairspring. The HMC 801 operates at 18,000 vph and has a seven-day power reserve, which is shown through a power-reserve indicator on the movement.

Of course, there’s the moon phase, itself, which allows for just one day deviation every 1,027 years. The moon phase uses a central moon disk that is done in four moons (rather than two that most others use). To set the moon phase, there’s a pusher on the side of the case that can be adjusted to precise accuracy using the small AM/PM handset on the central handset.

The H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Aventurine is going to come in either a red gold or steel case. The steel model comes on a midnight blue alligator leather strap, while the red gold model has a simple black alligator strap. There are only going to be 50 pieces of each made, and I hope to get hands-on images soon. Price for the steel model is $35,000, and the red gold model is priced at $39,900.

    I really love this watch.
    This is the best way to execute a moon indication.
    The only thing i find annoying is the am/pm stub: I’d really give it up for an indicator on the back or, better a date window.
    Maybe moon at 12 and date at 6?

    Gorgeous. The steel version for me. But with a better strap.

  • Stanislaw Zolczynski

    Lovely minimalistic design, at price of course. I have though a little chalenge for Moser. To be perfect moon disk should be hovering in front of sky. Solve that with phases. 🙂

    Lovely watch. A little chalange for Moser. Moon disc floating in front of firmament.

  • SuperStrapper

    I think this would be better presented in a red gold shade, like Sedona or that 5n piece we saw from MB&F earlier this week. That said my preference here is the steel one (which should have been white gold).
    I think I like the aventurine version better than the vanta one.

      Lovely watch in gold or steel, but I still prefer the gold over the steel (or white gold) because I think it warms it up a bit.

      • SuperStrapper

        You’re not wrong, i just have too hard a time aesthetically with yellow gold. Hence the call for something more contemporary (and warm) in a more red hue.

      There is a vantablack on here in vancouver that’s been on display for months now. The non-vanta on the moonphase sticks out like a sore thumb unfortunately, and really detracts from the whole watch.

      • SuperStrapper

        I believe that was one of my first impressions on seeing the marketing images for it, and while I have yet to see one in the metal you’ve just confirmed my suspicion.
        Hard to say which is more ‘cosmic’: infinite black or the fictional-but-stunning galaxy inside a slice of aventurine.

      • Stanislaw Zolczynski

        Perhaps vantablack sprinkled with starry diamond dust.
