At The Second Hand Club, we are proud to have this incredibly rare H. Moser & Cie Cylindrical Tourbillon reference 3811-1200. This piece is coming in brand new condition with original box and paperwork.
H. Moser & Cie. is a luxury watch brand with a rich history dating back to 1828. Founded by Swiss watchmaker Heinrich Moser in St. Petersburg, the brand quickly established itself as a leader in the watch trade in Russia with its emphasis on quality craftsmanship and exceptional mechanisms.
After Heinrich Moser's death in 1874 and the sale of the company, operations continued in Russia until forced to relocate to Le Locle, Switzerland in 1953. In 2005, with the backing of the Moser family, the brand reemerged on the world stage and has since earned numerous distinctions for its innovative designs and in-house development and manufacturing.
Today, H. Moser & Cie. is a family-owned, authentic Manufacture producing 1,200 watches annually and employing 55 skilled staff. All watches are fitted with one of the eight HMC proprietary movements, and the company's R&D division continues to innovate with features such as the interchangeable escapement module, the Double Pull Crown, and the perpetual calendar month display.
With complete control over every stage of development and manufacturing, H. Moser & Cie. embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of its founder and carries forward his visionary strategy and values.
The H. Moser & Cie Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton is a luxury watch that debuted at Watches & Wonders 2022 and quickly became one of the most popular new timepieces of the show. This elegant watch features a combination of classic and modern design elements that make it both suitable for daily wear and impressive enough to impress even the most discerning horological connoisseurs.
The movement of this watch, known as the H. Moser & Cie caliber HMC 811, is the star of the show. It features an eccentric subdial for the hours and minutes, as well as a 60-second flying tourbillon. The movement is also automatic, with a full gold automatic rotor (skeletonized) that allows for effective winding efficiency. One of the most unique elements of the HMC 811 movement is the use of a cylindrical (versus flat) balance spring, which is a rarity in the world of wristwatches.
The cylindrical balance spring not only adds an interesting visual element to the watch, but it also offers better accuracy over time due to fewer rate loss errors when amplitudes change. The HMC 811 movement is made in-house and operates at 3Hz with 72 hours of power reserve. The movement bridges are attractive and are given a darker anthracite finishing that is both masculine and modern.
The watch's case is a 42.8mm-wide steel Pioneer-style case with 120 meters of water resistance. The case is decorated and paired with a matte-black alligator strap. The dial is protected by a domed sapphire crystal that has less glare than previous H. Moser & Cie. products, making it easier to read in any light. The face of the dial is done in H. Moser & Cie’s “funky blue,” which is a gradient technique where the color shifts from blue to black as you move outward on the dial.
In conclusion, the H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton watch is a perfect blend of classic construction and modern design. This watch is a big hit and we expect to see more versions of it with different colors and perhaps different case materials. The debut reference 3811-1200 H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Cylindrical Tourbillon Skeleton is a success on its own.
