H. Moser & Cie. - A journey through time with the Streamliner

H. Moser & Cie. A journey through time with the Streamliner

With a name and a design like Streamliner, the brand new automatic flyback chronograph designed by the almost two-century old Manufacture Moser & Cie. extends a multi-dimensional travel invitation.

Evoking the first high-speed aerodynamic trains of the 1920s and 30s, which were the setting for numerous historical films, the Streamliner collection is a heroine of the modern-day “7th Art”. In the classical arts defined by the German philosopher Hegel, the 1st Art (architecture) and the 2nd Art (sculpture) are admirably reflected in the design of the case and the flowing curves of the bracelet integrated into the highly distinctive links, as well as in the construction of an exceptional movement visible through the sapphire caseback.

Subtly placed between the dial and the movement, its rotor fades away to make way for the spectacle. This perfectly ergonomic distillation of multicultural expertise (the caliber is co-signed with Agenhor) thus joins the ranks of the finest ambassadors of the 12th Art (the art of time measurement). Five years of a quest for perfection have resulted in this watchmaking encounter of the third kind, which sets a new watchmaking milestone inaugurating the third decade of the third millennium.

Collectors will also be fascinated by the world premiere of the flyback function of the hours and seconds indicated in the center on an automatic chronograph. Two pointers mark off the chronograph seconds and minutes, while time indications are provided by two others with a curved outer section creating a 3D effect and composed of Globolight : a ceramic-based material incorporating Super-LumiNova®and a first for hands. Aesthetic prowess is also reflected in the fumé dial in a new 1960s-style anthracite gray that reinforces its readability. And since Streamliner is a model by H. Moser & Cie., it is as eye-catching as one would expect.

Since its official launch at the beginning of January in Dubai, many devotees of fine watchmaking have fallen in love at first sight, starting with yours truly. But brand CEO Edouard Meylan is even more delighted by the comments of those who first expressed surprise, or even shock, before being won over by its audacity and the sophistication of its simplicity, once fully grasped. What if the film were called Flyback to the future?
