This stunning new timepiece from Swiss watchmaker H. Moser & Cie pays tribute to the celestial body that made Neil Armstrong a household name. Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept is one of the most precise moon phases available, with just one day’s deviation every 1027 years. It’s also extremely rare, with only 50 of each model produced.
The concept dial features neither logo nor indices. Only the moon shines through in a large window at 6 o’clock. It’s surrounded by seemingly interplanetary space.
The first of the two watches is made from steel. Its ultra-black coating is Vantablack, which is regarded as the darkest substance in existence. Vantablack is commonly used in astrophysics in telescopes and by the army as thermal camouflage. The material is composed of carbon nanotubes capable of absorbing 99.965% of light. It’s a bold design equipped with a black leather strap.
The regal, 5N red gold model features an H. Moser & Cie midnight-blue fumé dial. Its deep lustres, with twilight tones, are matched with the red gold of the case. A brown alligator leather strap adds the finishing touch.
Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept is powered by the HMC 801 hand-wound Manufacture calibre, equipped with an interchangeable Moser escapement. This calibre ensures a minimum 7-day power reserve, with an indicator on the movement side.
Endeavour’s wheel train is so precise that it can track the moon to within 0.23 seconds per day. The watches systems can be easily adjusted using a push-button on the side of the case.
The H. Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept is technically complex. It’s both elegant and understated and available in a limited edition of 50 pieces for each of the two models.
