The new 40 mm case for H. Moser & Cie.’s Pioneer line is a versatile model that can be worn in any situation. Its water-resistance of 12 ATM makes it suitable for use underwater, while the HMC 200 automatic calibre on the three-hand model and the HMC 804 Manufacture movement with flying tourbillon featuring a double hairspring on the more complicated model ensure precision and accuracy. The Arctic Blue dial adds a vibrant touch to the watch, which is sure to attract attention. The Pioneer Centre Seconds Arctic Blue and Pioneer Tourbillon Arctic Blue models are a great addition to the Pioneer line and reflect H. Moser & Cie.’s commitment to creating high-quality watches that are both stylish and functional.
The “Arctic Blue” dial of the Pioneer Centre Seconds and Pioneer Tourbillon Arctic Blue models is designed to be striking and radiant, catching the eye with its vibrant shade. The brand logo is placed at 12 o’clock, appearing as a subtle, minimalist signature thanks to the use of transparent lacquer. The dial is a true work of art, enhancing the steel case of the watch and giving it a contemporary, understated style. The indices on the dial are faceted applique and topped with Super-LumiNova® dots, making them easy to read in low light conditions. The leaf-shaped hands of the watch are also filled with Super-LumiNova® for added legibility. Overall, these watches are designed to be versatile and ready for any situation, whether on land or underwater, while still maintaining a sleek, modern style.
It sounds like the HMC 804 automatic Manufacture calibre in the Pioneer Tourbillon Arctic Blue is truly a masterpiece of watchmaking technology. The double hairspring design corrects the movement of the point of gravity on each spring, resulting in improved accuracy and isochronism, while also reducing the effect of friction. Additionally, the interchangeable tourbillon module makes servicing easier and more efficient. All of these features make the Pioneer Tourbillon Arctic Blue an ideal timepiece for modern lifestyles, offering a perfect balance of form and function.
The Pioneer Centre Seconds Arctic Blue is also equipped with Moser’s Straumann® hairspring with flat overcoil, ensuring optimal precision and isochronism. The hairspring is produced by Precision Engineering AG, Moser’s sister company, using a special alloy which offers excellent resistance to shocks and temperature variations, ensuring reliable performance in any situation. With its classic three-hand design, the Pioneer Centre Seconds Arctic Blue offers a clear and uncluttered dial layout, with a small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock and a date window at 3 o’clock. Its 40 mm steel case features a screw-in crown adorned with the Moser logo, and is fitted with a sapphire crystal case back, offering a view of the HMC 200 movement in all its glory. All in all, the Pioneer Centre Seconds Arctic Blue is a perfect example of Moser’s commitment to quality, precision, and timeless design.
