A Perpetual Calendar which says: “Unnecessary adornment is not for me”. Hiren Kumar Bose
It’s rare to come across a Perpetual Calendar with no logo on the dial and the simplicity of double indices. A believer in minimalism H. Moser & Cie.’s Endeavour Perpetual Calendar does that with elan.
Without multiple sub-dials or an illegible date disc: the indices show not only the hours, but also the months, using a small central hand. The 42mm watch’s large date window at 3 o’clock with a new date design and a power reserve indicator at 9 o’clock completes the piece, making it the most legible and easy-to-set watch available, as it can be adjusted forwards or backwards at any time of day. The HMC 800 calibre is housed in a new Endeavour case, whose lines have been adapted to increase the diameter beyond the 40.8 mm model.
The minimalist philosophy is pushed with the dial’s indices only at 12 and 6 o’clock and there is no visible logo or brand name. With its magnificent and mysterious midnight-blue fumé dial, this model remains immediately recognisable, even without ostentatious branding. As with all new models produced by the Manufacture from January 1, 2017, this watch doesn’t feature the Swiss Made label on the dial because H. Moser & Cie. whose creations are over 95% Swiss, does not consider the label sufficiently rigorous.
