H.Moser X MB&F - Entwined destinies

Many were not yet aware that H. Moser & Cie operates on a principle similar to the Friends of MB&F. These are partial participants in the development of a project, or major partners, who bring vision, design and even a movement to a timepiece.

Yet they remain secret… except in the case of the Endeavour Cylindrical Tourbillon H. Moser × MB&F. A sister project, a mirror watch, a high complication counterpart of the LM 101 MB&F x H. Moser, this tourbillon is also a Friends-inspired Moser and a Moserized MB&F. What does it have of MB&F ? An offcentered and tilted display principle reminiscent of the LM Thunderdome, but with a flat flying tourbillon. The height of these elements requires the use of a wide dome-shaped sapphire crystal. And what does it embody of Moser ? A steel case from the Endeavour collection, a fumé dial in an Ice Blue color, devoid of any indication, and a sapphire crystal subdial bearing its name. Finally, for the first time, a Moser watch welcomes a cylindrical balance-spring, coiled in the shape of a vertical tube. It is identical to the one used on the LM Thunderdome, but used here in a simpler tourbillon mechanism. This is more than just a special touch, but instead the very foundation of the project itself.
