Earlier today, two top Swiss independent watch brands luxury MB&F and H. Moser&Cie. Announced the results of their recent cooperation: two new watches with the same DNA. I introduced these watches in a column on Forbes.com today and I will introduce them to you below. In addition, I also added the technical specifications and opinions of each brand.
First of all, I have known Max Busser for decades and have always liked the way of thinking and the projects and clocks produced by his creativity. These new three-dimensional works are no exception, and-with H. Moser & Cie’s visionary Edouard Meylan (Edouard Meylan)-the two men shared a special part of their brand’s best works with each other “:H. Moser x MB&F.
My impression of H. Moser X MB&F watch
I had the opportunity to experience these H. Moser x MB&F watches in person. I like them all for different reasons. I love MB&F’s willingness to remake its Legacy Machine 101-remove the auxiliary time dial and select the hand so that H. Moser’s exceptionally delicate smoky dial has the upper hand. I also like that they deleted the logo/brand name on the dial-in the past, only watchmakers signed on the movement. However, I may fall in love with H. Moser & Cie even more. Endeavor cylindrical tourbillon, this is MB&F’s top mechanical innovation, works like a magic in a watch, and naturally has a fabulous smoky dial. I think it’s because I have seen MB&F’s outrageous works and H. Moser&Cie’s more classic works.
“The somewhat legendary (though young) MB&F (Max Busser and Friends) founder Maximilian Busser, and H. Moser & Cie.’s like-minded Edouard Meylan chose to work together-each contributed to the other’s advanced watchmaking skills. For H. Moser, who produces professional works, MB&F contributes to watchmaking technology with unique movements and mechanical forms. For MB&F, which produces unparalleled timepiece machinery and cooperative products, it is called Performance Art, H. Moser & Cie is committed to mastering Smoke dial art.
The final watch combines the brand’s style and iconic DNA. They are jointly signed by the two brands, not only to develop new best replica watches on their behalf. The new series represents a synthesis that pushes the concept of collaboration to new heights. “
MB&F, H. MOSER
“H. Moser&Cie and MB&F have been cooperating through Precision Engineering AG for nearly ten years. Precision Engineering AG is a company that provides MB&F balance springs. For H. Moser&Cie, it is the same level company. The concept of solidarity in independence Our partnership This is emphasized, each of which draws on each other’s expertise in watchmaking and always works together to achieve synergies.”
“According to Busser,” when I called, I mentioned that I really like the double balance spring, Moser smoky dial and Concept watch series. Edward immediately told me that he could let me borrow these functions, but only if he could reinterpret one of my machines. After the initial surprise, I thought about it. As 50% Indians and 50% Swiss, I firmly believe that mixing DNA will produce interesting results, so why not try it in watchmaking? Therefore, I agree and recommend the FlyingT model, which is particularly important in my mind. “
The result of the effort: each of these brands has launched a new timepiece with multiple versions available and limited editions. Each watch is packed in 15 pieces to commemorate the 15th anniversary of MB&F and the relaunch of H. Moser&Cie. “

“As mentioned above, when the collaboration started, MB&F suggested that H. Moser use MB&F’s Flying T (flying tourbillon) innovation. Therefore, H. Moser x MB&F Endeavor cylindrical tourbillon created by H. Moser skillfully integrates highly complex The raised one-minute tourbillon is combined with a raised and tilted sapphire crystal hour/minute dial-both located under the dome of a spherical semi-gloved sapphire crystal.”

“The raised tourbillon and tilted dial are MB&F’s logos. H. Moser modified it to make the H. Moser’s smoked (scaled) color dial a bright background. “We developed the sapphire dial to make the MB&F universe change Even more Moss, the dial is integrated, highlighting the beauty of our fumé dial. Meilan explained.
Five models of Endeavor cylindrical tourbillon H. Moser x MB&F watches will be produced-each in a stainless steel case. Dial: H. Moser’s signature models “Funky Blue”, “Cosmic Green”, “Burgundy”, “Off-white” and “Ice Blue”.

H.MOSER X MB&F
“For the MB&F Legacy Machine 100 MB&F x H. Moser collaboration, MB&F turned to one of the simplest but always complicated timepieces: the round Legacy Machine. As Busser said earlier, he was smoked by H. Moser&Cie’s expressive The dial is deeply intriguing and hopes to bring it to the forefront of the series. When Legacy Machine shows, minutes, power reserve and the iconic suspended flying balance wheel-highlight all the glory above its dial. For this watch, the suspension The balance wheel has been reworked to make more dials visible. This watch is equipped with a double balance spring made by Precision Engineering AG, which can significantly improve synchronization.”
“In the original MB&F LM101, the brand displayed hours and minutes on two separate sub-dials above the main board. On this new collaboration piece, the small dial has been deleted and the time indicating hand is directly on the dial, making The smoky treatment is full of glory. There are four striking smoky dials: red smoky, cosmic green, aqua blue and the beloved H. Moser’s stylish blue smoky.”
In addition, MB&F borrowed the H. Moser method used by the brand in its Concept watch series, where there is no brand name on the dial. For the LM101, MB&F deleted its logo from the dial, recalling hundreds of years of movement signature history, not the dial.
