Watch & Bullion12 July 2023 | 4 min read
To celebrate the opening of their first two exclusive boutiques in Hong Kong and Shanghai, the watchmaking maestro H. Moser & Cie. is making a splash. They’re presenting a daring revamp of their Streamliner Flyback Chronograph Automatic, now in stunning red gold, complete with a sporty rubber strap. This exclusive rendition is only available in the brand’s boutiques or on their online platform.
With its unique design that boasts elegance and fluidity, the Streamliner Flyback Chronograph has always stood apart from the crowd. Yet, this new model sports a brand-new look – the case previously only available in steel is now presented in 5N red gold, coupled with a comfortable integrated rubber strap. The warmth of the gold intertwines beautifully with the intricate hues of the Matrix Green dial. This vibrant combination breathes new life into the timepiece, making it a standup piece in the brand’s already successful 2023 lineup.
H. Moser & Cie.: An Ever-Growing Watchmaking Pioneer
Over the past decade, H. Moser & Cie. has significantly scaled up its operations. Their turnover has multiplied eight times, and production capacity has increased five-fold, placing them at the forefront of independent watchmaking. This extraordinary growth led to the opening of various boutiques worldwide – in Asia, the Middle East, America, and China. Each of these spaces echoes the brand’s philosophy, blending tradition with innovation and a dash of playful provocation, all under a minimalist approach.
Unveiling the Streamliner’s Notable Features
The Streamliner Flyback Chronograph Automatic Boutique Edition remains as robust as ever. Its water resistance of up to 12 ATM means it can be used both on land and underwater. Its 5N red gold case exhibits harmony and aerodynamics, reminiscent of a sculptural masterpiece. The elegance of the case is amplified by a subtly domed Glassbox-type sapphire crystal that gives the watch a classy vintage aura.
On the dial side, the seconds are tracked on a red and white outer ring, while the minutes are counted on an inner one. At the 12 o’clock position, a bold 3D 60 numeral nods towards the stopwatches of the Sixties and Seventies, reminding us of a time when legibility and functionality were of the essence. The design prioritizes readability with a bright red seconds hand and three-dimensional gilded curved hands for hours and minutes. These hands are created with a unique material – Globolight®, a Super-LumiNova®-containing ceramic base.
Delving Into the Streamliner’s Movement
Behind the dial, the chronograph is powered by one of the finest calibres ever designed, developed in partnership with AGENHOR, known for its complex watch movements. This movement is seen through the sapphire case-back and comes with a 72-hour power reserve. It features a striking contemporary finish with the traditional Moser stripes angled at 45° and anthracite grey rhodium plating on the bridges and main plate. The positioning of the oscillating weight between the movement and the dial allows for the admiration of the chronograph and its column wheel operation.
The new Streamliner Flyback Chronograph Automatic from H. Moser & Cie. is a definitive symbol of how the brand beautifully blends the past with the present. Wrapped in red gold, boasting a captivating Matrix Green dial, and fitted with a resilient rubber strap, this watch is a feast for the eyes of every horology lover. Under its sleek exterior, the watch is powered by the exceptional Calibre HMC 907, epitomizing the brand’s commitment to precision and superior craftsmanship.
Exclusively available in H. Moser & Cie.’s boutiques and their online store, this timepiece encapsulates the essence of the brand – a harmonious fusion of timeless elegance and progressive design. Regardless of the occasion – whether under the ocean or at an upscale event, this Streamliner Chronograph doesn’t disappoint. This launch truly amplifies H. Moser & Cie.’s position in the world of Haute Horlogerie, reinforcing the ever-present magnetism of their elegantly innovative creations.
