Rarely blue

A triple first for these two family-owned brands that already cooperate in terms of distribution in Switzerland : the first Bucherer Blue Edition limited series without any blue visible on the front (but instead on the back on the strap lining and rotor) ; the first men’s/women’s pairing for H. Moser & Cie ; and above all the first ladies’ watch from the venerable Manufacture, also featuring an unprecedented 38mm diameter. Sold exclusively in Bucherer boutiques, these two self-winding watches share a splendid fumé dial and stainless steel case, as well as a gold oscillating weight featuring a shade of blue matching that of the balance-wheel and bridge in an extremely distinctive manner. The men’s model is inspired by the 1920s, while the diamonds on the ladies’ watch give it a timeless appeal.
