The Venturer Small Seconds includes the beautifully worked manufacture calibre HMC 327, visible through the crystal case-back. This model is infused with design elements from traditional pocket watches but also with a clever mix of cues from the Bauhaus era of the 1920s and convex forms of the 1960s.
This includes a large bezel opening, revealing the extremely restrained and elegant H. Moser signature dial. Made of 18-carat red gold, this model has an ardoise dial with a sunburst pattern, typical H. Moser & Cie. In keeping with the clean lines of the crystal, bezel and case, the dial surface has a convex profile and the hands follow this contour, according a delightful depth to their form and an attention to detail that grows on closer inspection. The baton design and the curved edge of the swallow-shaped hands are long and slim, expressing a dynamic character. Refined lines are a key attribute to the design language of the Venturer Collection.
The HMC 327 movement was designed and manufactured in-house – even the hairspring and key elements of the escapement, such as the balance and golden screws. Characterized by its traditional watchmaking finishing, original Straumann Hairspring®, a minimum power reserve of three days and a hacking seconds function, it was designed especially for the Venturer Small Seconds. This enabled the small seconds display to be deliberately positioned at the outer edge of the dial.
