With the Endeavour Flying Hours, H. Moser & Cie. displays the time thank to a disc-based system. The famous Funky Blue dial features several planetary gears mounted on star wheels: in the centre, 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 that led to the birth of modern, independent watchmaking.
Usually displayed on a 120° angle, the minutes are here placed on a sector of 240°. Thank to this wide display angle, the Endeavour Flying Hours offers 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.
The Endeavour Flying Hours marks a significant technological milestone for H. Moser & Cie., which opts for a time display different from traditional hands, a first in the history of the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture. H. Moser & Cie. realizes a remarkable modular development based on its automatic HMC 200 calibre, which has been modified to create the C806 movement. With a minimum power reserve of three days, the C806 movement is equipped with a bi-directional winding system powered by an oscillating weight in solid red gold. The escapement and hairspring are produced in-house by Precision Engineering AG, a sister company of H. Moser & Cie. The unmistakeable H. Moser style of irreverent Haute Horlogerie.
