More on H. Moser Swiss Alp Watch

Founded by Heinrich Moser in Saint Petersburg in 1828, H. Moser & Cie was destined to create exceptional timepieces and built a reputation as a watchmaker for the aristocrats, even being mentioned in works by Dostoevsky. H. Moser & Cie's disruptive language of high watchmaking became absolute with the release of its Swiss Alp watch.

About H. Moser & Cie Swiss Alp Watches

To the untrained eye, the Swiss Alp watch looks just like the Apple watch. It has a rounded rectangular-shaped case, and instead of a touch screen displaying applications, it has an exquisite dial that can only display the time via its hands, or in some cases, features high complications and does not even have hands to tell the time.
The Swiss Alp Watch range is a tribute to high watchmaking, offering the wearer a feeling of disconnect with modern technology but a feeling of connection to the centuries-old art of timekeeping. If you enjoy traditional timepieces with a modern touch, have a look at the H. Moser & Cie Endeavour collection.
The Swiss Alp watch was created as a reproach to the Swiss watch industry's unimaginative response to the Apple watch. Instead of mimicking or trying to keep up with its tech functionality that puts the perspective of true luxury in question, as a fun jab, it is a parody of its contemporary, versatile, and famous case design.
Its familiarity ends there, as it is a completely in-house masterpiece fashioned only in highly finished or precious materials and features haute horology hand-decorated movements. Traditional models have a mechanical power reserve of 4 days, which is multiples of any smartwatch performance over nearly a decade since its introduction.

H. Moser & Cie Swiss Alp History

The first H. Moser & Cie Swiss Alp watch featuring a brown fumé sunburst dial and dusty kudu leather strap was unveiled at SIHH in 2016 and was limited to 50 pieces. It was the successor to the tonneau-shaped Henry launched in 2007, and its lineage can be traced back to its shared and impressive in-house caliber, the HMC 324.
After the first model was well received, the watchmaker proceeded to evolve the concept of the original and flex its haute horology pedigree with traditional, daring, and radical variations of the model in limited numbers. Staying true to its contemporary lineage, they featured Moser-esque design elements and complications.
These were models such as the Swiss Alp Watch Minute Retrograde, with a unique Moser Group-owned Hautlence movement, the Swiss Alp Watch Concept Black, a minute repeater flying tourbillon with no hands and only a chime to sing the time, and the Swiss Alp Watch Final Upgrade; a fully blacked out model with a Vantablack dial and a sub-dial that resembles a spinning activity indicator.
