    With the heritage of the manufacture dating back to the early 19th century hailing from St. Petersburg, Russia, H. Moser & Cie was re-established in 2005 by a group of investors including Jürgen Lange (an engineer who had developed movements for IWC) and Roger Nicholas Balsiger (Honorary Chairman of the firm and the great-grandson of the founder Heinrich Moser). With strict manufacturing protocols and limited cash flow, the firm was in deep waters by the late 2000’s. However, in 2012 the MELB group, chaired by Georges-Henri Meylan (ex-CEO of Audemars Piguet) together with his family purchased H. Moser & Cie along with its sister company Precision Engineering, a balance-spring manufacturer.

    H. Moser & Cie timepieces are hand-executed to the highest level of traditional Swiss watchmaking. The firm has continued to strive to produce these magnificent timepieces even during the toughest times. The Monard Date is feasibly the firm’s most simplistic and understated timepiece. Released before the contribution of the Meylan family, the Monard Date features a clean sunburst silvered dial with a large date aperture positioned at 6 O’clock. Furthermore, the present timepiece features an impressive patent developed in 2007 by the firm and Precision Engineering, the Straumann Hairspring®. A revelation, the newly developed hairspring is detachable by unscrewing two screws instead of overhauling the entire movement. The present example in 18K pink gold is offered with the full set of accessories and is presented in attractive overall condition. Elegant and subtle, this is a fantastic opportunity for lovers of minimalistic timepieces to acquire a stunning example of the H. Moser & Cie Monard Date.
