In shades of anthracite and blue, this Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Tantalum Blue revisits H. Moser & Cie.’s emblematic complication in a visually striking manner. Combining tantalum, a stable and durable metal with a unique hue that’s exceedingly difficult to machine and polish with the ancestral technique of “grand feu” enameling, a new dimension of vibrant colors and textures embellish world’s most intuitive and legible perpetual calendar watch.
The HMC 800 is a uniquely simple and award-winning manual-winding Perpetual Calendar movement, where the calendar mechanism is an integral part of the movement rather than a modular add-on.
Rather than inundate the dial with windows, this perpetual calendar uses a small hand in the center and the 12 indices to represent the month. Additionally, the date and month can be set forwards or backwards at any time, without risk to the movement.
Lending a new dynamic to the traditional art form of enameling with the use of a pattern engrained, as if hammered, onto a gold base and three different color pigments that are melded together. The result is a textured and immaculate fumé aesthetic for a captivatingly contemporary finish.
