A STREAMLINER IN GOLD AND BLACK

Following on from the all-steel version, H. Moser & Cie. is releasing a red gold Streamliner equipped with the manufacture’s automatic calibre with flying tourbillon. The streamlined aesthetic of this ode to minimalism complements the complexity of the movement and the materials chosen. In a striking play of contrasts, the Manufacture distils the essence of the tourbillon, the traditional Haute Horlogerie mechanism, combining it with Vantablack®, an innovative coating used in astrophysics and taken from the aeronautical industry. Minimalist, ultra-modern and timeless: H. Moser & Cie. presents the Streamliner Tourbillon Vantablack®. 
 
For this version of its Streamliner model, H. Moser & Cie. has chosen to adorn all its perfectly rounded curves – from its cushion-shaped case to its integrated bracelet with articulating links– in red gold. Extremely meticulous polishing and satin-finishing work on adjacent surfaces is required to obtain the high-end finishes for which the Streamliner collection has become renowned. The transitions between the different types of finishes must indeed be flawless. The deep black of the Vantablack® dial is highlighted by the 5N red gold, with its vertical brushed finish alternating with polished lines. The contrast between the two materials is further accentuated by the red gold indices which punctuate the dial, its blacker than black surface pierced by these rays of light. H. Moser & Cie. has achieved a real technical feat in fixing these indices from the back so that, depending on the angle, they appear or disappear against the Vantablack®, this innovative material created in 2012 which the Manufacture has grown to love and has learned to master over the years. Reputed to be the darkest substance in existence, this super-black Vantablack® coating is used in astrophysics for telescopes and by the military as thermal camouflage, to increase the stealth level of certain equipment, or in civil contexts for solar panels. It is composed of juxtaposed carbon nanostructures. When a photon hits Vantablack®, this material absorbs 99.965% of the light. As our eyes need reflected light to perceive what we are looking at, Vantablack® is perceived as the absence of matter. H. Moser & Cie. had to put a structure in place and develop special processes to successfully work with this material, which is perfectly protected once behind the sapphire crystal. 
 
Seemingly floating in the middle of a black hole, the one-minute flying tourbillon positioned at six o'clock comes to life as the driving force behind this exceptional timepiece. A marvel of ingenuity, this automatic HMC 804 calibre is equipped 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, significantly improving accuracy and isochronism in continual pursuit of perfection. 
 
Packed with state-of-the-art technology, the Streamliner Tourbillon Vantablack® model is an understated powerhouse, a timepiece to be enjoyed to the full.
