For the first time in its history, the Schaffhausen-based manufacture has revisited its time display methods to create a new, disc-based system. The mechanism is inspired by the planetary systems that led to the birth of modern, independent watchmaking. Adopting a technical approach that respects the elegant, understated style of H. Moser & Cie., the result is an exceptionally refined time measuring instrument. The Endeavour Flying Hours represents a major step for the Schaffhausen-based manufacture. This remarkable modular development is based on its automatic HMC 200 caliber, which has been modified to create the C806 movement.
The signature H. Moser & Cie. Funky Blue dial features several planetary gears mounted on star wheels: in the center, the main disc in sapphire displays the minutes on a 240° sector; three smaller discs bearing the hour numerals are arranged around it. Each planetary gear rotates on its own axis, revealing the hour in a display inspired by the original planetary systems. The wide display angle of 240° gives the Endeavour Flying Hours highly accurate legibility. The hour discs, which are so well integrated as to be almost invisible, blend into the main dial, ensuring the aesthetic stays true to H. Moser & Cie.'s signature minimalist style. To enhance the mechanism’s legibility, the current hour numeral appears in white, following the minute disc as it completes a revolution before disappearing to be replaced by the next hour. A hypnotic ballet that captivates the eye.
