Hi all, I've just been comparing simple dress watches from both emerging companies, and had some self-debate between the Parmigiani Tonda 1950 and the H Moser Venturer Small Seconds. I haven't held either in person, curious if anyone with more hands-on experience can give feedback of the merits of each watch?
Some things I observe but am on the fence on:
- Parmigiani dials are more simple and flat, while Moser generally uses their gradient dials. I'm debating between simplicity vs curiosity
- Movements - Unsure how the finishing compare to each other, Moser has much longer power reserve and a subtle reserve indicator, while the moser has a elegant microrotor.
- On the models I'm comparing, the bridges allow more to be exposed on the Parmigiani which is nice
- While I'd consider both in-house, I think Moser makes their own hairsprings, and Parmigiani is a bit more fragmented in what company does what
Opinions appreciated, thanks!
