From the brand’s whose moto is “VERY RARE” comes something very rare (as rare as rocking horse .....), a watch that has intrigued me since it was previewed at SIHH earlier this year.
Despite it already being available from dealers with an MSRP of 15,500USD, it hasn’t actually had any kind of official release, if it had; it was certainly the stealthiest release in existence.
There are a couple things to say about the Limited Edition of 50 – firstly it isn’t per se a diver’s watch (according to H. Moser). The other is that it represents two firsts for the brand.
Not only is it H. Moser’s first ever timepiece to be equipped with a rotating bezel, but it is also their first model to be fitted with a Stainless bracelet.
So not a true diver, but with its graduated blue dial, 120m of water-resistance and a bezel with a 50-min scale it would seem that it could perhaps handle more than a passing flirtation with the ocean.
Basic spec. includes: a 42.8mm Stainless steel case, Sapphire crystal (front and back) and an automatic HMC200 Caliber with a power-reserve of 3 days.
Thoughts? This is the classy gentleman’s almost dive watch. I would imagine that it has already long sold out. What do you think; should they make a few more?
