The inspiration behind the Heritage Tourbillon Skeleton came from an H. Moser pocket watch dating from the late 19th century in the H. Moser & Cie. collection. The case on this model, made from a striking blue, engraved enamel and studded with diamonds, inspired the watchmakers at the Schaffhausen-based Manufacture to reinterpret this watch, calling on the best craftsmen to work on the case.

Featuring stunning purple enamel on a case with two covers, guilloché engraving and diamond setting techniques, in association with a modern in-house, automatic and skeletonised calibre with a minute-tourbillon: the Heritage Tourbillon Skeleton is the synthesis of the greatest arts in watchmaking craftsmanship.

It also symbolises the link between the past and the present for H. Moser & Cie., founded in 1828, through a reinterpretation of an historic watch which retains its original features, now in a larger dimension and fitted with a strap. The red gold case with two covers has therefore been enlarged and features extremely fine lugs, while respecting its original design. On either side of the watch is a cover with hand-engraved, guilloché decoration, extending up the side of the case.

These have then been enamelled, demonstrating the highest level of craftsmanship, and set with diamonds on the dial side. Paired with a crocodile leather strap, this beautifully rounded case is as smooth as a pebble. In reference to the historic timepiece, the H. Moser & Cie. Heritage Tourbillon Skeleton has a notched crown fitted with a push-button mechanism for opening the upper case cover.

The beating heart of this exceptional timepiece is the high-performance HMC 803, the tourbillon calibre in a skeletonised version. It guarantees the Heritage Tourbillon Skeleton a minimum 3-day power reserve.
