H. MOSER & CIE. DEFTLY PLAYS WITH CONTRASTS
Deftly playing with contrasts, H. Moser & Cie. combines radiant red gold with the absolute black of Vantablack®, which literally absorbs light. A striking fusion, a spellbinding dance between two extremes whose differences intertwine to form a captivating duality that fascinates and inspires.
H. Moser & Cie. orchestrates a captivating visual symphony where light and shadow meet. The flamboyant warmth of the 40 mm-diameter case and hands in red gold contrasts with the endless abyss of a dial in Vantablack®, an ultra-black coating recognised as the darkest substance in the world. Composed of carbon nanostructures, this innovative material was developed for astrophysics and is used in telescopes, as well as by the army to increase the stealth level of certain equipment. When a photon hits Vantablack®, this material absorbs 99.965% of the light. As our eyes need reflected light to perceive what we are looking at, Vantablack® is perceived as the absence of matter, a black hole.
For the Endeavour Centre Seconds Vantablack® model, H. Moser & Cie. has applied the expertise it has acquired through its work with Vantablack® to achieve a technical feat by adding red gold indices to the dial, veritable strokes of light piercing the darkness. At the heart of this creation is the self-winding Manufacture calibre HMC 200. It is equipped with a regulating organ manufactured by Precision Engineering AG, the sister company of H. Moser & Cie. It houses a large, engraved gold oscillating weight and guarantees a minimum power reserve of 3 days.
