Following the notable “purity” technique of the brand – and that specific enemy of conventionalist soul that can make us giggle or make us think – H. Moser & Cie. keeps on sending the spotless look of its watches with this refined understanding of the Venturer Big Date. Toning it down would be best and if the attention is on intelligibility, it is managed without losing the nuts and bolts of the brand. Cleaner yet strong, meet the H. Moser & Cie. Venturer Big Date Purity.
This wish for purity came steadily for H. Moser. There was an unmistakable, astute and very much idea technique behind it. Stage one was an intense assertion to say “we are different”, to declare that the brand’s configuration codes are more grounded than simply a name imprinted on a dial. The first “concept” watches removed each and every engraving from their dial to show simply a couple of hands and the mark fumé dial. Stage two was the genuine article, the second when Moser made some clamor, by eliminating the “Swiss Made” notice from the dial . Following this came the “purity” watches: cleaner, focussed on the fundamental, yet less revolutionary than the “concept” watches.
After presenting the Endeavor Perpetual Calendar Purity or the Venturer Small Seconds XL Purity , it is currently an ideal opportunity for another exemplary in the assortment to get this “cleaning” treatment. The H. Moser & Cie. Venturer Big Date has been in the assortment for very a few years now, yet consistently with files, hands and inscriptions on the dial. Presently, with the Purity adaptation, it becomes cleaner and much more “Moser” than it used to be.
The primary concern of interest of the Purity watches is their dials. While the presentation and the complications are as yet unchanged, the dial of the H. Moser & Cie. Venturer Big Date Purity just shows the fundamental: focal hands for the hours and minutes, a little seconds sub-dial at 6 o’clock, an enormous date at 3 o’clock and just four records situated at basic areas – 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock (which is, indeed, enough to peruse the time). On the Purity watches, the name of the brand is as yet printed at 12 o’clock yet that’s the solitary notice you’ll find on the dial – recollect that “Swiss Made” isn’t permitted any longer at Moser .
For the rest, the Moser signature style is as yet present – and in fact, this cleaner look makes these watches some way or another significantly more conspicuous. Two forms of the H. Moser & Cie. Venturer Big Date Purity will be accessible: red gold with a smokey-dark fumé dial or white gold with a Funky Blue gradated dial. The case stays as before, which means currently measured at 41.5mm in breadth and 14.5mm in stature – it is a rather thick watch, essentially because of the exceptionally bended precious stone on the dial side and the amazing development inside.
Inside ticks a noteworthy development, the calibre HMC 100. Because of two barrels, this in-house development can hide away to 10 days of force (with at least 7 days). As often with the brand, the force hold pointer is situated on the development, to keep the dial as perfect as could be expected. It additionally includes the restrictive tradable Moser escapement and the in-house manufactured Straumann Hairspring. Featuring the Flash Calendar system, this development guarantees an immediate date change at 12 PM and permits the date to be easily changed advances or in reverse whenever. To have the date as extensive as could be expected, it is furnished with two stacked date plates, the upper circle bearing the numbers 1 to 15 and the lower plate bearing 16 to 31. The development is, as usual, pleasantly enlivened with Moser stripes and cleaned anglages.
