Subtle and elegant, the newest addition to H. Moser & Cie’s Streamliner collection marries futuristic lines with timeless horology.
Taking inspiration from the first high-speed trains of Europe, huge, powerful locomotives from the 1930s to 1950s famed for their futuristic curved design, H. Moser & Cie has added to its Streamliner collection of men’s timepieces with the arrival of the Streamliner Centre Seconds.
Following the January launch of the Streamliner Self-Winding Flyback Chronograph, the new timepiece focuses on the essentials: hours, minutes, centre seconds, which are displayed on a mesmerising fumé dial in matrix green, which presents a complex palette of shades from olive green to red gold. Displaying the hours and minutes, the 3D hands are formed of two sections and feature inserts made from Globolight, an innovative ceramic-based material that contains Super-LumiNova. The minute hand is curved.
Water-resistant to 12ATM, the fluidity of the new watch’s design is what will catch the eye first; balanced, precise proportions meet extraordinary ergonomics thanks to fully integrated steel bracelet and the absence of lugs on the case. The case middle has hollowed and satin-finished forms on the sides, and alternating brushed and polished surfaces, in a nod to the traditional unusual shapes typical of Moser cases. It is topped by a subtly domed sapphire crystal, echoed by the see-through case back.
Extending these curves, the integrated steel bracelet is elegantly arced to follow the line of the wrist; highly complex in its construction, the bracelet has extremely fluid, organic lines, with all links articulated and boasting a gentle wave that combines a vertical brushed finish with polished surfaces. A true technical feat, this bracelet is a masterpiece of subtlety and sophistication, with flexibility to match.
Beating at the heart of the Streamliner Centre Seconds model is a 100 percent 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 famous Moser double stripes, the HMC 200 calibre houses a solid gold oscillating weight and offers a minimum power reserve of three days.
