Individually built upon order, the newest Swiss Alp Minute Repeater Tourbillon showcases the independent Swiss watch brand’s technical and aesthetic prowess; H Moser & Cie is particularly known for its breathtaking dials. This model is crafted in 18K white gold and features an intriguing laser-machined dial. Its differently shaded blue mosaic motif recalls the brand’s beloved “funky blue” dial color. To create this technologically advanced square movement (square movements can be more difficult than a traditional round movement), it turned to MHC Manufactures Hautes Complications SA. The C 901 hand-wound caliber, with 90 hours of power reserve, offers a one-minute flying tourbillon at 6 o’clock, as well as a minute repeater with two gongs. To accommodate the complicated movement, the case was widened to provide enough space for the sound to amplify. As it is made to order, you can customize the dial and know that each watch is unique.
