H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Perpetual Calendar

Usually most of the high complication watches like perpetual calendar, tourbillon etc are highly sophisticated and may not withstand harsh conditions of everyday life. So these timepieces are not recommended for day to day wear.

So in order to satisfy the needs of modern day horology enthusiasts, independent Swiss watch manufacture H. Moser & Cie. has decided to create an extremely wearable perpetual calendar, designed to elegantly display the time under any circumstances, both on land and in water. Launching this year, the Pioneer Perpetual Calendar from H. Moser & Cie. is the first complication of its kind which is truly suited to everyday wear, thanks to its highly durable stainless steel case with an impressive water resistance up to 120 meters.
In 2015, H. Moser & Cie. launched the Pioneer collection. Bold and modern, the mark of a pioneering and adventurous spirit, with a strong design which makes reference to the industrial world, models in this collection are both elegant and comfortable-perfect for everyday wear. For H. Moser & Cie., the Pioneer was the natural choice when including a steel model in its regular collection: the Pioneer Perpetual Calendar is easy to use and comfortable to wear. Akin to a suit of armour with a 42.8 mm diameter, the Pioneer Perpetual Calendar case protects the complex mechanism at the heart of the watch.
On its display part, the Pioneer Perpetual Calendar features the mesmerising H. Moser midnight blue fumé dial. The luminescent dots on the flange and the hands filled with Superluminova ® allow the display to be read at any time of day.
For the strap, H. Moser & Cie. has chosen black alligator leather.  From the back of the watch, the legendary H. Moser perpetual calendar calibre can be admired through the curved sapphire crystal case - back. A marvel of ingenuity and complexity, enhancing a complication executed with absolute simplicity, the HMC 800calibre guarantees a minimum power reserve of 7 days.
