Here we have yet another interesting collaboration between two reputable brands with an amazing history and the highest degree of handwork each in their fields. The Swiss, family-run watchmaker H. Moser & Cie. has partnered up with the manufacturer of luxury automobiles Rolls Royce to create three limited edition pieces exclusively for members of the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club.
To be precise, the independent manufacture has actually teamed up with the Swiss Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club to create these timeless models. Each of them match a midnight blue fumé dial encrusted with a sunburst finish and the club’s logo. There is a choice between the Venturer Small Seconds and Endeavour Small Seconds models. These highly exclusive timepieces are available with or without a diamond-set bezel and, as it is expected, feature many very subtle references to Rolls-Royce.
H. Moser & Cie. Venturer Small Seconds (ref. 2327-0204) is housed in three-part, 18-karat white gold case which measures 39mm in diameter and 11.90mm in thickness. This exquisite watch is equipped with the in-house manufactured caliber HMC 327 hand-wound movement that oscillates at the frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour (2.5 Hz) and is capable to store enough energy to keep the watch working for approximately three-days.
The impeccable mechanical movement is encrusted with a special engraving to evoke the grille of the luxury vehicle which is visible from the back side of the watch. The movement breathes life into indicators for hours, minutes, small seconds, and a power reserve on the movement side. This model is attached to a sleek, black hand-stitched alligator leather strap, fitted with a white gold pin buckle engraved with the Moser logo.
There are also two H. Moser & Cie. Endeavour Small Seconds models which are housed in 18-karat white gold cases and there is a choice with or without diamond-set bezels (their referent numbers are 1321-0217 and 1321-0216). This model is a little bit smaller than Venturer Small Seconds Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club timepiece, measuring 38.80mm in diameter and 9.30mm in thickness.
The beating heart of the Endeavour Small Seconds watch is the in-house made caliber HMC 321 mechanical hand-wound movement that offers functions for hours, minutes, small seconds, and a power reserve indicator on the movement side. Although these special edition models are tolled with different calibers, they are functionally identical.
Speaking about wristlets that keep the Endeavour Small Seconds watches on the wrist, there is a choice between blue and gray satin strap, ending with a solid 18-karat white gold pin buckle engraved with the Moser logo.
Each of these three H. Moser & Cie. Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts’ Club Limited Editions is issued in the quantity of only 73 pieces.
