The Schaffhausen-based manufacture joins the fight against Duchenne muscular dystrophy by creating a unique piece with a dial made of the darkest man-made material.
The Endeavour Perpetual Moon is part of H. Moser & Cie. Concept series, featuring no logo or indices. The steel version with identical dial was presented back in 2018. The Vantablack is basically a super-black coating composed of carbon nanotubes vertically aligned next to each other, and yes, it’s capable of absorbing 99.965% of light. Three golden central hands as well as the tiny AM/PM indicator and the Moon at 6 are literary levitating above total blackness. The moonphase can quickly be set by the dedicated push-button, and according to the manufacturer it’s precise to one day's deviation every 1027 years.
Inside the 42 mm red gold case of Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Only Watch beats the HMC 801 hand-wound in-house movement, equipped with the interchangeable Moser escapement. This calibre ensures the watch has a minimum 7-day power reserve, with an indicator on the movement side. The sapphire caseback gives an opportunity to look at the movement and the finishing including a contrasting red balance bridge. Hand-stitched black alligator strap, lined with red leather completes the look.
