I am conscious of only some different corporations which have positioned a cylindrical/helical/spherical hairspring in a wristwatch, together with Montblanc/MinervaJaeger-LeCoultre, and Vacheron Constantin. I imply no offense to any of these nice manufacturers, however I really feel like in these earlier implementations it has usually felt like an afterthought, an addition that provides complexity (and value) as a right for design or wearability. Compared, Moser’s Cylindrical Tourbillon has a really coherent aesthetic method that is centered – fairly actually – on opening the watch up and making its beating coronary heart the star of the present. It does retain sure recognizable Moser parts, specifically the small fumé sub-dial that accommodates the hours and minutes show, the Globolight-embedded hour and minute palms which might be borrowed from the Streamliner, and the 4 recessed and ridged elements on the caseband which might be half and parcel of each watch within the Pioneer assortment. 

One other side that differentiates the brand new Moser launch from previous wristwatches with cylindrical hairsprings is its value – at $86,900, it is no worth proposition nevertheless it’s effectively beneath the six-figure vary we’re used to seeing for related experiments in regulating organs. Moser can be making the deliberate selection of not limiting the brand new watch to any particular quantity.
