REVISITING THE ENDEAVOUR FLYING HOURS IN BOTH GREEN AND SUPERLUMINOVA

Featuring one main disc displaying the minutes, around which three small planetary gears displaying the hours gravitate: the Endeavour Flying Hours caused a stir when it was launched in 2018. So much so that the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture has decided to create two new limited edition models. The first features a one-of-a-kind phosphorescent blue display, so that the Endeavour Flying Hours can be admired at any time, day or night! The second boasts the Cosmic Green dial which has become one of the signatures of H. Moser & Cie.

Using discs to display the time, H. Moser & Cie. has drawn its inspiration from planetary systems, which gives it its own unique re-interpretation, with an elegant and minimalist look. In the centre, the main disc in sapphire displays the minutes on a 240° sector; three smaller discs bearing the hour numerals are arranged around it. Each planetary gear rotates on its own axis.

For the Endeavour Flying Hours SuperLuminova® Blue model, H. Moser & Cie. chose to combine two of its most impressive dials, rhodium-plated fumé for the base of the dial and Funky Blue for the hour discs. And, because the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture does nothing by half measures, it used Globolight® and Superluminova® to ensure that the time can be read day and night. Globolight® is an innovative material which can adopt all shapes and colours, and which contains Superluminova®. The combination of these two materials creates surprising contrasts of light in the dark. On the second model, H. Moser & Cie. has used its famous Cosmic Green dial, reminiscent of the Aurora Borealis or northern lights. The hour discs, which are so well integrated as to be almost invisible, blend into the main dial, ensuring the aesthetic stays true to H. Moser & Cie.’s signature refined style.

The Endeavour Flying Hours SuperLuminova® Blue and Endeavour Flying Hours Cosmic Green models both feature a white gold case. A dark grey alligator leather strap adds an irreverent, modern touch to the look of the Endeavour Flying Hours SuperLuminova® Blue. On the Endeavour Flying Hours Cosmic Green, a black alligator leather strap adds the finishing touch for a refined, timeless elegance.

At the heart of these two creations, the HMC806 automatic calibre guarantees a minimum 3-day power reserve. It is equipped with a bi-directional pawl winding system powered by a solid red gold oscillating weight. The escapement and hairspring are produced in-house by Precision Engineering AG, a sister company of H. Moser & Cie.
