Undoubtedly the most significant watch of the H. Moser & Cie assortment, the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar is a piece that we covered ( and applauded, and audited ) a few times here, on Monochrome-Watches ( here or here for example). it has even been the play field for an idea, in what is to date the cleanest QP you can envision (excessively spotless? Perhaps, yet the fact of the matter isn’t here). With their now common “no logo” moderate dial approach and the new #MakeSwissMadeGreatAgain approach , H. Moser & Cie patch up their QP, with the Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Purity. New case, new dial, same super-sharp movement… and 100% Swiss Made.
Technically, the new H. Moser & Cie Endeavor Perpetual Calendar Purity stays indistinguishable from the past versions of the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture’s QP. Also, frankly, no complaints, as there’s very little to develop this development. To be sure, it unquestionably quite possibly the most bright perpetual calendars of the current creation, particularly as a result of its visual effortlessness and easy to use day by day use. The showcase is some way or another essential from the outset, as basically the date is obvious – huge and very much situated, yet rather alone. All things considered, there’s more, with a little hand on the focal pivot, which shows the months. The jump year, irreplaceable element of a QP (however not a helpful one consistently) is situated on the back. This completely in-house produced development has more than 7 days of force save and the ‘Twofold Pull Crown’ include, which permits a revision of the date by turning the crown (without upsetting the time setting) and set the time unequivocally (with a hack-second framework), just as a change both forward and in reverse of the calendar, whenever of the day.
If the development and the showcase stay indistinguishable, what’s going on with this H. Moser & Cie Endeavor Perpetual Calendar Purity? All things considered, without breaking the codes and being problematic towards the remainder of the brand’s creation, this Endeavor Perpetual Calendar Purity restores altogether its “habillage” (the outside pieces of a watch). To begin with, the case has been overhauled and enlarged. While already estimating 40.8mm, the new Moser QP presently shows a 42mm distance across (and a sensible 11.9mm thickness). This bigger case is made out of 18k white gold. The shape has advanced as well, in the subtleties. In any case, the bended caseback, which welcomes a magnificent comfort on the wrist, is still here, just as the curved casebands with cleaned and vertically brushed surfaces. Great to know is that the situation (and the dial as well) is developed and produced in Switzerland, just to fit with the #MakeSwissMadeGreatAgain approach (meaning that most, if not all parts are made in Switzerland, bringing back to previous greatness the possibility of Swiss Made).
With this Endeavour Perpetual Calendar Purity, we likewise have a slight advancement of the dial. It utilizes the moderate idea of the brand (no logo, no pointless records, no “Swiss Made” notice), yet in a less naked plan than the Perpetual Calendar Concept for example (which truly had nothing on the dial aside from hands… and even no little second sub-dial any longer) Here, the blue fumé dial (a smoky angle dial, hazier on the fringe) holds some lists at 12 and 6, with the new look embraced by the brand (twofold facetted mallet). The date window has been re-formed as well, presently being bended, lastly, the sub-counter for the second shows a similar unadulterated plan. A moderate watch without a doubt, yet it remains somewhat neat in the end.
This new H. Moser & Cie Endeavor Perpetual Calendar Purity is, for the occasion, a restricted release of 50 pieces, just in white gold/blue fumé dial combination, with a dark gator lash. Value is CHF 54,000 Swiss Francs. www.h-moser.com .
