Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Vantablack®
H. Moser & Cie. reinterprets the moon phase in an understated way and highlights the beauty of the lunar body in an ode to its purity. Nestled at the heart of the Concept dial, which features neither logo nor indices, the moon shines through in a large window at 6 o'clock. Surrounding it there is only space, seemingly interplanetary space. This effect is enhanced by the dial which is made from Vantablack® for the steel model. Its ultra-black coating, regarded as the darkest substance of all, Vantablack® is used in astrophysics in telescopes and by the army as thermal camouflage.
It is composed of carbon nanotubes that are vertically aligned next to each other and is capable of absorbing 99.965% of light. It is the darkest black dial to be produced yet. The black colour is such that it appears astral, abyss-like: An undeniable black hole at the centre of which shines the moon. The Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Vantablack® is an elegant, serene and refined moon phase model. A watch with a contemporary and bold design fitted in a steel case.
This model is powered by the HMC 801 hand-wound Manufacture calibre, equipped with an interchangeable Moser escapement featuring gold screws. The PE4000 hairspring, with a Breguet end curve, was entirely produced in-house by the sister company of H. Moser & Cie., Precision Engineering AG. The HMC 801 calibre ensures the watch has a minimum 7-day power reserve, with an indicator on the movement side. The moon phase system is an extremely precise display that can be set, read and predicted to within a minute. The system can be easily adjusted using a push-button on the side of the case.
On average, the moon's orbital period lasts 29.53059 days. To be more precise: 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes and 2.9 seconds. The Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept's intricate wheel train portrays this interval so precisely that the gap is a mere 0.23 seconds per 2 day, that is to say one day's deviation after 1027.30 years. With the Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Vantablack®, H. Moser & Cie. signs a piece which embodies technical complexity, is unconditionally elegant and understated and worthy of the finest watchmaking traditions.
The unmistakeable H. Moser style of irreverent Haute Horlogerie.
