About

H. Moser & Cie. was created by Heinrich Moser in 1828. Based in Neuhausen am Rheinfall, it currently employs around 60 people, has developed 14 in-house calibres to date, and produces more than 1,500 watches per year.

H. Moser & Cie. manufactures the majority of the components in its movements, including the hairsprings and the regulating organs which are used for its own production as well as to supply its partner companies. This gives the brand total control over production.

In the hands of the Meylan family, H. Moser & Cie. is an independent, family-run Swiss business, driven by an entrepreneurial spirit developed over the past century.

Philosophy

Passion for innovation and entrepreneurial heritage are H. Moser & Cie. driving forces. Elegance and understatement have become the brand signature style. Defying the norms, and continually challenging itself to ensure it moves forward, H. Moser & Cie. occupies a distinct position in the market. As part of a Swiss family-run group, the brand enjoys a significant degree of freedom and autonomy. Extremely responsive, H. Moser & Cie. fosters an irreverent approach to communication that breaks from convention, and designs products which are classic yet firmly in the spirit of the times, utterly contemporary and resolutely timeless.

Taking inspiration from watches that form part of its immense heritage, the brand is revisiting and modernizing its classics. Its timepieces are manufactured entirely in Switzerland. H. Moser & Cie. is a staunch defender of Swiss mechanical watchmaking and its values, and is also fully committed to ensuring sustainable development, both in its watchmaking activities and beyond.

Last but not least, transmission is a core mission of H. Moser & Cie. The brand has its own foundation, the Heinrich and Henri Moser Foundation. The aim of the Moser Foundation, created by one of Heinrich Moser’s descendants, is to keep the family history alive and seek out antique pieces for the Moser Museum, located in Charlottenfels Manor, Heinrich Moser’s family home.

Collections

Swiss Alp Watch

The Swiss Alp Watch is the only H. Moser & Cie collection to feature a rectangular case. It’s a cheeky retort to a certain well-known smartwatch manufacturer. 100% mechanical, with a manufacture movement, the Swiss Alp Watch comes in a very small number of highly creative models, ranging from a minute repeater tourbillon to a simple Concept model with two hands. It won’t send Tweets, monitor your sleep or display notifications, but a couple of hundred years down the line, it will still keep perfect time. Now, that’s a smart watch.

Endeavour

Endeavour is the manufacture’s flagship collection, embodying the essence of H. Moser & Cie’s watchmaking savoir-faire. Fumé dials are a major feature of the collection, and have become one of the watchmaker’s aesthetic signatures. The Perpetual Calendar has become a major success for H. Moser & Cie, and the manufacture has built further complication variants (flying hours, minute repeater, tourbillon) along with some unique aesthetic variations, under the “Concept” label, which is distinguished by a complete absence of markings, logos or indices on the dial.

Heritage

Offering the quintessence of the traditional watchmaker’s art, the Heritage collection showcases grand feu enamel dials, blued hands and venerable complications such as the tourbillon. With an immediately recognisable case featuring tapered lugs and hands specially designed for these few models, the Heritage line is intended for purists with a desire to perpetuate the art of a watchmaking house founded almost two centuries ago. Today, the range has been enhanced with two models featuring dials in Moser’s signature Funky Blue colour.

Pioneer

The mission of the Pioneer collection is to incorporate Haute Horlogerie into watches intended for daily wear, often with an almost sporty aesthetic. The Pioneer collection is modern and edgy, in steel or gold, and comes with exclusive and colourful smoked dials. Although it initially comprised three-handed models only, it has expanded to include complications (perpetual calendar, tourbillon), for discerning collectors who have no intention of leaving their watch in its drawer.

Venturer

Venturer is a modern collection with a pioneering, adventurous spirit. It encapsulates the entrepreneurial drive of Heinrich Moser. Although it draws inspiration from the manufacture’s historical pocket watches, the Venturer collection also incorporates pure design elements characteristic of the 20th century. The small second and tourbillon are the essential complications of this pared-down collection with a strongly minimalist identity.
