In the casual horologist zeitgeist, H. Moser & Cie are best known for their Swiss Alp, Swiss Cheese, and Swiss Icon master-level marketing trolls. However, amongst those paying closer attention, Moser are known more for their gorgeous fumé dials and beautifully-finished, technically-competent calibres . . .perhaps lesser so for their sporting merits. However, a new watch collector’s startup-group recently collaborated with Moser and brought that alternative reality to bear.

Collective are a new application-only watch collecting community who collaborate with manufactures to release watches for their members. The group requires new applicants to purchase a Collective collaboration watch as the entry ticket to the community; think silicon valley startup approach to RedBar group. Collective have released a handful of watch collaborations thus far, but this Moser is among the most sought after. The traditional 42.8mm case shape, green fumé, and calibre HMC 200 remain. However, a screw-down crown, bi-directional bezel, Super-LumiNova lume, and griffé decoration to the dial have been added. The result is a spectacularly practical independent steel beauty with true rarity, produced in just fifty examples.

Collective have noted that they tend to frown on flipping, their limited collaborations have been quite scarce in the secondhand market as a result. That makes this 1 of 50 offering all the more tempting. This example is in very strong condition with little to comment on, it’s a grey-market-new watch for all practical purposes. It comes with a full set from a private collector.
