A master watchmaker, entrepreneur and industrial pioneer, Heinrich Moser ((1805-1874)) evolved the watchmaking craft, putting in place a truly international service and a network of specialist retailers. A long-term partner of H. Moser & Cie., Bucherer shares many values with the company that has been called the "little pearl of Schaffhausen": both are independent Swiss companies, based in German-speaking Switzerland and both were founded in the 19th century; H. Moser & Cie. in 1828, and the celebrated retailer Bucherer in 1888.
Elegant, refined and understated, the Venturer Small Seconds Bucherer Edition reinterprets the design codes of the Venturer family, with clean lines and a design inspired by the historic pocket watches of H.
Similar to the red gold versions presented at Baslwolrd 2014, the Venturer Small Seconds Bucherer Edition in white gold features a convex profile, emphasised by its domed sapphire crystal, the line of which is reflected in the dial and the long, tapered hands with curved edges.
The bezel offers a clear view of the dial, revealing its exceptional midnight blue colour, whose sunburst pattern adds an extra layer of detail. The blue hairspring and balance wheel of the hand-wound HMC 327 calibre are visible on the back of the watch. H. Moser & Cie.’s sister company Precision Engineering AG assists with the in-house expertise necessary to design, develop, produce and assemble the highly-specialised technical components such as the balance wheels and hairsprings. This expertise was instrumental in developing the blue treatment, creating an impression of depth in the escapement.
The Venturer Small Seconds Bucherer Edition will be available exclusively at Bucherer in Switzerland, Germany and Austria.
