Following the family-run MELB Holding’s takeover of the company in October 2012 and the appointment of Edouard Meylan as CEO in April 2013, H. Moser & Cie is starting over with a clean slate. The young CEO has designed three new collections in tribute to the three stages of the company founder Heinrich Moser’s life: Endeavour, Venturer and Pioneer. The first two were unveiled in Basel this year whilst the third is to be launched in 2016. Inspired by the Mayu collection, the new Venturer Small Seconds features H. Moser & Cie’s signature classic fumé dial. This iconic watch with curves in all the right places (gold circular case, domed crystal, convex dial and hands) is fitted with an in-house HMC 327 movement. It also has a hacking second function, a silicon pallet and escape wheel and the in-house Straumann Hairspring®. Price: 17,500 CHF.
