H. Moser & Cie.: the all-steel model Streamliner Centre Seconds
2 mins read
H. Moser & Cie. unveiled the Streamliner Centre Seconds, which follows the self-winding Flyback chronograph as the second model in the Streamliner collection. “Streamliner” is a reference to the first high-speed trains from the Twenties and Thirties, whose rounded curves these models re-interpret. This new model focuses on the essential: hours, minutes, centre seconds. Equipped with a steel case on an integrated steel bracelet, the aesthetic of the Streamliner Centre Seconds is harmonious, from its proportions and fluid forms to its high-end finishes. It is paired with a brand-new and uniquely elegant fumé dial in Matrix Green.
A staple classic, the 3-hand watch requires expertise of the highest level, as it is the details that elevate a piece. Balanced, precise proportions are the key to harmony. Featuring a 40.0-mm steel cushion case, which is water-resistant to 12 ATM, it offers great ergonomics thanks to the design which includes a fully integrated steel bracelet with no lugs on the case. The case middle has hollowed and satin-finished forms on the sides, and alternating brushed and polished surfaces. It is topped by a subtly domed sapphire crystal, echoed by the see-through case-back. Extending these curves, the integrated steel bracelet is arced to follow the line of the wrist. Highly complex in construction, this bracelet has fluid lines, based on organic forms. All the links are articulated and feature a gentle wave combining a vertical brushed finish with polished surfaces.
Every part of the Streamliner Centre Seconds is in harmony; to further elevate the steel of the case and bracelet, H. Moser & Cie. has created a brand-new fumé dial: the vibrant Matrix Green colourway offers a complex palette of shades from olive green to red gold. This brand-new colour dial adds the finishing touch to the timeless elegance of this model. Displaying the hours and minutes, the 3D hands are formed of two sections and feature inserts made from Globolight®, an innovative ceramic-based material which contains Super-LumiNova®. The minute hand is curved.
Beating at the heart of the Streamliner Centre Seconds model is a Swiss mechanical movement: the HMC 200 self-winding calibre. Entirely designed, developed and produced in-house, this movement is equipped with a regulating organ manufactured by H. Moser & Cie.’s sister company, Precision Engineering AG. Decorated with the Moser double stripes, the HMC 200 calibre houses a solid gold oscillating weight and offers a minimum power reserve of 3 days.
