When Max Büsser first reached out to Edouard Meylan, CEO of H. Moser & Cie., he told the latter that he was fascinated by their take on the fume (smoked) dial. In response, Meylan said he'd like to "reinterpret one of MB&F's machines."
The collaboration has produced two exclusive collections that fulfil not only their unique visions but also expand the brands' appeal beyond their niche audiences.
Endeavour Cylindrical Tourbillon H. Moser x MB&F
The Endeavour Cylindrical Tourbillon combines MB&F's unique expertise in three-dimensional movements with H. Moser & Cie.'s design savvy. A flying tourbillon hovers over the dial at 12 o'clock, with a cylindrical balance spring that produces far better isochronism than a flat balance spring, but takes 10 times longer to make. The sapphire sub-dial, tilted at a 40-degree angle, at 6 o'clock features the discreet hour-and-minute indication.
The steel watch comes with the option of Funky Blue, Cosmic Green, Burgundy, Off-White or Ice Blue dials, each limited to 15 pieces, the number alluding to MB&F's 15th anniversary as well as the 15th year since the rebirth of H. Moser & Cie..
