  • Catalogue Essay

    H. Moser & Cie was founded by Henrich Moser (1805-1874) who brought luxury items to Russia’s aristocratic elite, opening his first boutique in St. Petersburg in 1828. The Schaffhausen-based manufacturer produced a range of timepieces from time only watches to grand complications, making their own in-house movements since 1829. Following Moser’s death, the company was sold due to lack of family involvement, and was expropriated in 1918 during the October Revolution. The firm was revived in 1953 as a wristwatch manufacturer, however had financial trouble during the quartz crisis of the 1970s, and closed in 1979. In 2002, Moser’s great grandson Roger Nicholas Balsinger and Dr. Jürgen Lange formed Moser Schaffhausen, which relaunched H. Moser & Cie in 2005. Today, the brand is owned by the Meylan family as an exclusive brand known for their carefully crafted, precision in-house movements with unique features, and closely follows their motto “to manufacture in-house, and to make ingenious products”. They seek an entrepreneurial spirit that looks to the future, creating timepieces with a 21st century appeal.

    Well-sized for a wide variety of wrists at 38.8mm in diameter, the present Mayu features a stunning fumé dial – a sought-after feature of modern Moser timepieces. Powered by the in-house, manually wound caliber HMC 321, a single mainspring provides an impressive 72 hours of power reserve. Preserved in hardly worn, excellent condition it comes accompanied with all of its original accessories.
