H. Moser & Cie Announces the Streamliner Tourbillon Skeleton

Last Updated: April 13, 2024Tags: , ,

Crafted to deliver an unrivaled blend of visual spectacle and technological mastery, the Streamliner Tourbillon Skeleton embraces a minimalist design philosophy of Moser watches. True to its core principles, H. Moser & Cie. eliminates all extraneous elements, revealing the raw, captivating nature of its movement. The centerpiece of this fully skeletonized watch is a one-minute flying tourbillon, its double hairspring creating an illusion of weightlessness. The Streamliner Tourbillon Skeleton stands as a testament to bold design and unwavering ingenuity of the brand.

H. Moser & Cie. marked their presence into the world of skeleton watches in 2022 with the unveiling of the Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton. Now, the Manufacture applies these same principles to its second skeletonized masterpiece, this time within the Streamliner collection. Through meticulous material reduction, H. Moser & Cie. meticulously crafts every aspect of the Streamliner Tourbillon Skeleton, achieving an air of stark, uncluttered beauty. The skeletonization turns the timepiece into a luminous composition, offering depth and unveiling the typically hidden intricacies of its inner workings. Even the barrel is openworked, showing a glimpse of the spring and allowing the wearer to check its power reserve. The rotor, also intricately perforated, is visible through the entirety of the watch. Symmetry is paramount, ensuring a flawlessly harmonious balance of proportions. The minimalist finishes exude modernity, with the anthracite main plate and bridges highlighted by elongated strokes and sharply defined beveling.

The 40mm steel cushion case of the Streamliner Tourbillon Skeleton have a water resistance up to 12 ATM. Its design, including an integrated steel bracelet, offers very good ergonomics. Alternating polished and brushed surfaces adorn the case middle, with satin-finished curves along the sides. This sleek case is accentuated by a gently domed sapphire crystal, mirrored by a transparent case back. The integrated steel bracelet forms a flowing arc and mirrors the contours of the wrist. Its complex engineering echoes organic shapes, offering exceptional fluidity and comfort. Three-dimensional, two-part hour and minute hands incorporate Globolight® inserts, an innovative Super-LumiNova®-infused ceramic, and are drawn to the gold-plated indices.

A one-minute flying tourbillon can be seen at six o’clock. The automatic HMC 814 skeleton movement is a marvel of watchmaking, featuring a double hairspring developed and produced by Precision Engineering AG, H. Moser & Cie.’s sister company. This expertly paired set of hairsprings counteracts the shift in the point of gravity experienced by a single hairspring as it moves, and reduces friction. The result is a dedication to relentless perfection, manifested in enhanced precision and isochronism.
