News: Super Rare, Super Complicated - The Endeavour Minute Repeater Tourbillon
In 2019, H. Moser & Cie. released the Endeavour Minute Repeater Tourbillon—a complicated, yet minimal super-watch. Costing hundreds of thousands of pounds and being limited to just ten pieces, the Endeavour Minute Repeater Tourbillon—even if you could afford it—wasn’t exactly easy to get your hands on.
So, why am I talking about a watch that was released years ago, and one you can’t even buy at that? Well, that’s because H. Moser & Cie. just announced that another thirty will be available for purchase. Ten in white gold with a black Fumé dial, and twenty in titanium with a captivating “Electric Blue” Fumé dial.
H. Moser & Cie. was first founded in 1828, Saint Petersburg, Russia
In true H. Moser & Cie. form, the Endeavour Minute Repeater Tourbillon is a minimal watch. No writing on the dial, nothing to distract you—like say, a power-reserve—just the features that make this watch so special. While the watch is on the slightly larger side—being 43mm—I think that can be excused due to what that 43mm houses. A flying tourbillon, a minute repeater—with a dial-side striking mechanism, so that not only can you hear the complication, but you can also see it too—and the rich, transitioning “Electric Blue” Fumé dial.
But that’s not all. Turning over the watch reveals the HMC 903, the movement powering all that goodness. The HMC 903 is a manually-wound calibre comprised of 400 parts and boasts a pretty impressive 90-hour power reserve—remember that’s with a minute repeater and a tourbillion.
The H. Moser & Cie. calibre HMC 903 was a collaborative effort between Moser and Timeless SA
The titanium base-plate, along with the bridges, is given double-crested Geneva striping. While the rest of the movement receives perlage, a sprinkling of rose gold parts, and Moser’s "Chef’s Kiss": it's very own seal of excellence. This all means that instead of the watch's movement being considered flashy or distracting, the movement simply oozes that signature Moser quality we have come to expect.
Super rare, super complicated; that’s this watch to a tee. If you find yourself in the fortunate position of being able to buy one, then well, lucky you; but I, like most others, will continue to have Fumé filled dreams for the foreseeable future.
