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.
With the Endeavour Tourbillon Concept Vantablack®, H. Moser & Cie. is writing an ode to minimalism. Positioned at 6 o’clock, the one-minute flying tourbillon seems literally to float in the centre of a black hole, with no reflection, and without indices or logo by way of distraction. A marvel of ingenuity, the self-winding HMC 804 calibre which drives this model is equipped with a double hairspring designed and produced in-house. Thanks to this pair of matched hairsprings, the movement of the point of gravity on each spring when it expands is corrected and the effect of friction reduced, significantly improving accuracy and isochronism in continual pursuit of perfection.
