Naturally, creating both clear and harmonious sounds within such a small space takes the work of painstakingly brilliant craftsmen. The case middle, therefore, has been widened to the maximum to accommodate such movement, while granting enough space for a soundbox.
“What seems at first sight to be magic,” the H. Moser & Cie press office commented, “is actually mechanical ingenuity at its finest.”
Also included is the spectacular one-minute flying tourbillon at six o’clock. Visible through the skeletonized bridge, it floats above the strikingly aqua blue “Grand Feu” enamel dial, the ultimate showcase of painstaking hand-placement of different pigment shades, resulting in a visually stunning ombre effect.

What’s more, the Endeavour Concept Minute Repeater sees the hammers and gongs, traditionally placed on the movement side, moved to the dial side for a final result of pure harmonious wonder.
With both the red gold and titanium editions retailing for $365,000, H. Moser & Cie are once again reminding watch enthusiasts that they are the premier standard for the luxury watch industry. Even the colors of the cases are the result of a formidable depth of consideration; the warm red gold tone was selected to play with the vibrancy of the aqua blue face, and the titanium is for those who might prefer a more understated aesthetic.
“The finish is remarkable,” H. Moser & Cie concluded. “Resolutely contemporary, with a particularly striking texture and an intense hue, christened Aqua Blue, that the Schaffhausen-based manufacture lets speak for itself, with no logo or indices.”
