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.
