H. Moser & Cie. Swiss Alp Watch S

Remember the first smart watch from H. Moser & Cie.? Launched in January 2016, the Swiss Alp Watch was a purely traditional, yet the smartest way to stand against the influx of new generation smart watches, which are often regarded as a threat to traditional watch making industry. The now iconic Swiss Alp Watch is added to the H. Moser & Cie. collection in a model with a midnight blue fumé dial: the Swiss Alp Watch S.
H. Moser & Cie. is an advocate of traditional watchmaking values, retaining a sense of humour and a subtly provocative character that have become its signature while blending classic with sexy. The Swiss Alp Watch S fits perfectly into this collection. Its rectangular case with soft, rounded corners is topped by a crystal with curved edges, for a resolutely contemporary look.
The classic dial reveals a deep, mysterious lustre in midnight blue fumé. This effect is further enhanced by the refined black alligator strap and by the form movement that drives it – the hand-wound HMC 324 calibre. With this combination of traditional cues and current lines, the H. Moser Swiss Alp Watch retains an allure that is both symbolic and spirited.
To the delight of enthusiasts of traditional horology products, the Swiss Alp Watch S now joins as a regular collection in the Manufacture's diverse range which includes the Endeavour, Venturer and Pioneer families.
