Watchmaker H. Moser & Cie collaborates with sportswear brand Undefeated to create a striking new limited edition timepiece.

Sometimes two things go together with unexpected results. Who would have thought that peanut butter and jelly would taste so good, or that cameras and cellphones would eventually become one all-encompassing daily essential? Today, brands are constantly testing conventions and subverting expectations – sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t but it’s that creative energy that you have to appreciate.

In a new collaboration with the streetwear and sportswear brand, H. Moser & Cie has created the Streamliner Chronograph Undefeated, a limited edition sports-inspired model built around the themes of victory and virtue.

Espousing a number of shared values, the two brands are resolutely minimalist in their aesthetic, with an eye for detail and a desire to constantly push boundaries. They make it a point of honour in their respective industries to surprise by subverting expectations and defying norms. The Streamliner Chronograph Undefeated is the fruit from this fusion, an elegant timepiece that gives a nod to the street culture brand’s mantra: “Play Dirty” and which boasts fluid lines fortified by a bold design that spotlights minimalism and legibility.

Undefeated was founded in 2002 by James Bond and Eddie Cruz, opening its first curated apparel and sneaker boutique of its kind in Los Angeles, on the legendary La Brea Avenue. Now with 28 boutiques throughout the world, Undefeated has since become one of the most influential brands of its generation. From its inception, Undefeated has built one of the most iconic collaboration portfolios, partnering with artists and brands to create highly sought-after limited editions in fields as diverse as mainstream basketball and luxury cars.

For the first time, the Streamliner features an anthracite grey DLC coating on its cushion case and integrated bracelet links. This bespoke outfit is paired with a Black Tiger Camo fumé dial. This motif – a favourite of Undefeated – is engraved on the dial and then given several coats of lacquer to create the colour. The finish is then applied to the lacquer to obtain H. Moser & Cie.’s signature fumé effect.

As with all models in the Streamliner collection, this chronograph has perfectly rounded curves, evoking the very first high-speed trains from the Twenties and Thirties whose name it adopts. Around the edge of the dial, the grey outer minute track measures the seconds, while the inner minute track – also in grey – counts the minutes. At 12 o’clock, the black rhodium-plated steel Undefeated logo provides the perfect counterpoint to the three applique numerals. Just below this sits the H. Moser & Cie. signature in a discreet light grey.

The hands that precisely measure the elapsed time have a thicker base and an extremely fine tip, like those found on the counters in a car or a measuring instrument. The manufacture chose three-dimensional curved hands to indicate the hours and minutes, formed of two sections and featuring inserts made from anthracite grey Globolight, an innovative ceramic-based material which contains Super-LumiNova.

The Streamliner Chronograph Undefeated is equipped with a calibre developed jointly by Agenhor and H. Moser & Cie.’s teams. Despite its extremely sophisticated design, the movement is built around simplicity, legibility and minimalism, and features a practical and ergonomic central time display. Water-resistant to 12 ATM in passive and dynamic modes, the Streamliner Chronograph Undefeated is a beautifully understated and highly readable model.
