An extremely complicated watch, but one that doesn’t show it quite as obnoxiously as many others. The H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Perpetual Calendar Steel is subtlety taken to the extremes.
Why? The innovative brand has created a perpetual calendar in stainless steel with a relatively simple dial. A piece of trivia: the perpetual calendar complication developed by H. Moser & Cie has won the prestigious Grand Prix de Horlogerie de Geneve in 2006.
Earlier H. Moser launched a gold version of this model. The H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Perpetual Calendar Steel combines the minimalism of the first center-seconds handed model with a classic midnight blue fumé dial.
The H. Moser & Cie. Pioneer Perpetual Calendar Steel looks less complicated than it is
From the back of the watch, the H. Moser perpetual calendar HMC 800 caliber can be seen through the curved sapphire crystal case back. A combination of ingenuity and complexity, enhancing a complication executed with absolute simplicity, the HMC 800 caliber guarantees a minimum power reserve of 7 days. Very handy when you are working with something as a perpetual calendar.
The configuration of the calendar is, as we said, subtle. A big date at 3 o’clock, a small central hand for the month, a power-reserve indicator at 9 o’clock and a leap year indicator can be found on the movement side.
The steel Pioneer Perpetual Calendar from H. Moser & Cie is a more robust/rugged version of their perpetual calendar. Also more affordable, relatively speaking that is.
