Paying tribute to the exceptional artisan watchmaking, the Heritage Tourbillon, like all creations by H. Moser & Cie., links tradition of 187 years old Swiss watch brand and modernity.
The inspiration behind the Heritage Tourbillon Skeleton came from an H. Moser pocket watch dating from the late 19th century in the H. Moser & Cie. collection. The case on this model, made from a striking blue, engraved enamel and studded with diamonds, inspired the watchmakers at the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture to reinterpret this watch, calling on the best craftsmen to work on the case.
The red gold case with two covers has therefore been enlarged and features extremely fine lugs, while respecting its original design. On either side of the watch is a cover with hand-engraved, guilloché decoration, extending up the side of the case. These have then been enamelled, demonstrating the highest level of craftsmanship, and set with diamonds on the dial side. Paired with an alligator leather strap, this beautifully rounded case is as smooth as a pebble. In reference to the historic timepiece, the H. Moser & Cie. Heritage Tourbillon has a notched crown fitted with a push-button mechanism for opening the upper case cover.
