The Swiss Alp Watch on the Rocks is a bold statement, evoking images of ice cubes cracking between the teeth. In the manner of a high-calibre jeweller, H. Moser & Cie. has taken a creative approach for this timeless piece, the most exquisite Swiss Alp Watch to date. The dial is set with 232 baguette-cut sapphires, like a screen where every pixel is a sapphire and the sophisticated, ergonomic rectangular case with elegant, rounded corners is set with baguette-cut diamonds. This resolutely disconnected watch, featuring a monochrome interface in a thousand shades of blue, is a promise of time regained: time for yourself, for friends and family, with no filter and no time-consuming tools on your wrist. All with a power reserve of a minimum of 4 days, and fully rechargeable by hand.
The Swiss Alp Watch on the Rocks has a powerful aesthetic, and a timeless appeal. When working on this example of exceptional artistry, H. Moser & Cie. focused on the aesthetic of the square. In fact, the Swiss Alp Watch on the Rocks is completely paved in squares. The choice of a baguette cut for the sapphires and diamonds in this watch lends it an Art Deco air, emphasising the rectangular shape of the case, for an understated design which remains dynamic and modern. The Swiss Alp Watch on the Rocks is proud of its strong character. On the dial, the sapphires are set using an invisible technique, with the different shades blending to create a similar effect to the iconic H. Moser fumé dials. In a feat of technical ingenuity, the rounded sides of the case and crown are set with diamonds in beautiful invisible settings.
At the heart of the Swiss Alp Watch on the Rocks, the HMC 324 form movement beats with the rhythm of the balance wheel's rotations. One thing is certain: the Swiss Alp Watch on the Rocks will provoke intense emotions. It is sure to make an impact, and it will leave no-one unmoved.
