The Tourbillion, invented by Abraham-Louis Breguet in 1801 is one of the most fascinating complications in high-horology.
The H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Tourbillon Concept in Funky Blue is an excellent example of a tourbillon combining tradition with modern technology and a casual look & feel.
According to H. Moser & Cie "Conceived to counteract the effects of gravity on the watch’s timekeeping precision, the tourbillon is a device in which the regulating organ and escapement are placed, which constantly rotates around a central axis to eliminate any positional errors."
This model was launched in 2017 by Swiss independent watchmaker H. Moser & Cie in 2017 and features a very minimalistic dial, without indexes
or even the logo, in a gorgeous funky blue color. The 42mm case feels modern and appropriate.
The main actor in the front is the H. Moser flying tourbillon with the patented double-hairspring.
Powered by the in-house caliber HMC 804 the Endeavour Tourbillion concept funky blue keeps a very casual vibe through the material used in this particular version
(Stainless Steel, limited to 20 pieces) but also the kudu leather strap that makes the watch less formal than a traditional tourbillion.
According to the manuacturer, H. Moser & Cie, "Along with the sunburst pattern and gradient colour effect of the fumé dial, this concept model takes a minimalistic approach by foregoing the logo and all other markings from the watch face."
According to H. Moser "The HMC 804 is an automatic tourbillon movement which counteracts the effects of gravity in two ways: the one-minute flying tourbillon, and the patented double hairspring where two identical hairsprings compensate for any positional errors."
On the back of the watch we can admire the automatic caliber HMC 804 "with a double hairspring flying 60-second tourbillon, boasting superlative precision and a mesmerizing kinetic spectacle for the wearer as it beats and turns against the partially open dial."
The power reserve of 72 hours is impressive given the complication. The movement is very well decorated with the traditional Côtes de Genève stripes.
The gold rotor, partially cut, allows a good view of the impressive movement.
In conclusion we find the H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Tourbillon an outstanding choice for a true connoisseur of high horology.
