TWO LIMITED EDITIONS FOR DUBAI WATCH WEEK
In collaboration with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, H. Moser & Cie. has created two limited edition timepieces featuring dials in brand new colourways. In tribute to the long-standing partnership that links the Seddiqi and Meylan families, these two models celebrate the friendship and values that these two firms share. A fumé dial with a sunburst pattern in warm tones is combined with the bold aesthetic of the Swiss Alp Watch, available in steel with a black DLC treatment. The second model boasts a taupe fumé dial which subtly enhances the harmonious forms and perfectly balanced proportions of the 38-mm Endeavour case, created from steel and featuring a bezel set with diamonds. These two creations form part of H. Moser & Cie.’s Concept series of watches, with neither logo nor indices, and will be officially launched to coincide with Dubai Watch Week
Classic but sensual: the Swiss Alp Watch Concept Dubai Limited Edition fits perfectly with this philosophy. Its rectangular case with soft, rounded corners is made from steel coated with a black DLC treatment, topped by a crystal with curved edges, for a resolutely contemporary look. With its brand new shade of radiant yellow, the pared-down dial is utterly striking. A black kudu leather strap adds to this creation, which is driven by the hand-wound HMC 324 form movement and released in a limited edition of 10 pieces.
The second model designed by H. Moser & Cie. for Dubai Watch Week is the Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept Diamonds Dubai Limited Edition. It features a steel case, which has been redesigned for a diameter of 38 mm. With more dynamic curves and reworked lines, it boasts perfectly balanced proportions. The bezel is set with diamonds to enhance the brand new taupe coloured fumé dial, which features neither logo nor indices. Paired with the HMC 200 automatic Manufacture movement, this timepiece is 100% Swiss and 100% H. Moser & Cie, and released in a limited edition of 9 pieces.
Mohammed Abdulmagied Seddiqi, CCO of Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons commented: “Collaboration between Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons and H. Moser has existed since the very first edition of Dubai Watch Week and we have produced a limited edition every year. This year we are launching two new models, and we are especially thrilled to have worked on the first ever H. Moser ladies concept watch, released for Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, during Dubai Watch Week 2019”.
The Swiss Alp Watch Concept Dubai Limited Edition and the Endeavour Centre Seconds Concept Diamonds Dubai Limited Edition models will be launched to coincide with Dubai Watch Week.
