It looks like a smartwatch but isn’t one. The Swiss Alp Watch Zzzz from H. Moser & Cie. with its black dial — stripped not just of any signature, but also of its indices — is strictly minimalist. Absent of any interface, the watch with a rectangular case and rounded corners is designed to display the time, something it does beautifully.
At the heart of the Swiss Alp Watch Zzzz, the HMC 324 form movement beats with the rhythm of the balance wheel’s rotations. In response to the cold electronics of connected watches, H. Moser & Cie. presents the soul of mechanical watchmaking. With a minimum power reserve of 4 days, fully rechargeable by hand, it couldn’t be further from the world of the smartwatch.
Alongside the model with a black dial, H. Moser & Cie. is releasing a variation at the opposite end of the scale, featuring the striking and radiant Funky Blue dial; an example of watchmaking yin and yang. The Swiss Alp Watch Zzzz is available in a limited edition of 20 pieces of each of the two references.
