H. Moser & Cie. has once again pushed the boundaries of innovation and elegance with its latest addition to the Streamliner series – the Tourbillon Wyoming Jade. This limited edition of 100 timepieces is a testament to the brand's commitment to blending nature's beauty with horological craftsmanship.
A Jade Symphony in Red Gold
The Streamliner Tourbillon Wyoming Jade is a celebration of natural elegance. It features a dial crafted from Wyoming jade, a vibrant and rare mineral. Encased in 5N red gold, the watch exudes refined sophistication, modernity, and timeless charm. The absence of excessive detailing on the dial allows for an unobstructed view of the one-minute flying tourbillon at 6 o'clock, showcasing the full splendour of the Wyoming jade.
Wyoming Jade: A Natural Masterpiece
Sourced from the pristine landscapes of Wyoming, the USA, the jade used in this timepiece is 100% natural and left untreated to preserve its authentic character. Each dial becomes a unique work of art, bearing subtle, naturally occurring marks and distinct shades. Meticulous craftsmanship and modern technology come together in the manufacturing process, starting with the precision cutting of the jade using CNC technology. The thin slices thus obtained, ranging from 1 to 1.2 mm, are then arranged and shaped to maintain the uniform structure of the stone. Hand polishing adds the final touch, eliminating any imperfections while enhancing the natural brilliance of the stone.
Innovative Movement and Design
The Streamliner Tourbillon Wyoming Jade is powered by the automatic HMC 804 calibre, a testament to H. Moser & Cie.'s commitment to excellence. The movement features a double hairspring, designed and produced in-house by Precision Engineering AG, H. Moser & Cie.'s sister company. This innovative design corrects the movement of the point of gravity on each spring, reducing friction, and enhancing accuracy and isochronism.
The timepiece boasts a 5N red gold case, measuring 40.0 mm in diameter and 12.1 mm in height, with a sapphire crystal. The see-through sapphire crystal caseback provides a glimpse into the intricacies of the movement. The Wyoming jade dial is complemented by Globolight® inserts on the hour and minute hands, adding functionality to the aesthetic.The intensity of the Wyoming jade's olive tone, coupled with the absence of a logo on the dial, emphasises the beauty and aesthetic power of this semi-precious stone.
The timepiece is equipped with an integrated bracelet crafted from 5N red gold. It features a folding clasp with three blades, also made from 5N red gold and intricately engraved with the Moser logo. For added flexibility and a customised fit, half-links are also available.
