In anticipation of Geneva Watch Days next week, H. Moser & Cie. is releasing the Streamliner Tourbillon Vantablack. In line with the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer’s “Very Rare” philosophy, the first non-steel Streamliner is created from the ultimate precious metal: 5N red gold. H. Moser & Cie.’s latest introduction of the iconic Streamliner design is equipped with the manufacture’s automatic calibre with flying tourbillon.
The gold 40 mm case and bracelet of the watch are contrasted intensely with the Vantablack dial. Made of carbon nanostructures that absorb 99.965% of all light, Vantablack® is an innovative coating used in astrophysics and taken from the aeronautical industry. The indices are attached from the rear to preserve the delicate Vantablack; depending on the angle, they appear or disappear against the dial.
Seemingly floating at six o’clock, the one-minute flying tourbillon is the driving force behind this exceptional timepiece. Thanks to the skeletonized bridges, the tourbillon opening allows the user to see straight through the movement. This automatic HMC 804 calibre is fitted with a double hairspring designed and produced in-house by H. Moser & Cie.’s sister company Precision Engineering AG. Thanks to this pair of matched hairsprings, the movement of the point of gravity on each spring when it expands is corrected and the effect of friction reduced, improving accuracy and isochronism in continual pursuit of perfection.
The Streamliner Tourbillon Vantablack retails for $119,900.
