How one of the blackest substances on earth ended up in a luxury watch
HMoser & Cie may well be the only WATCHMAKER with a sense of humour. When it’s not busy producing elegant DRESS WATCHES with beautiful fume dials and COMPLICATIONS, it’s making a statement with bizarre one-offs made of Swiss cheese, plants or the hallmark features of other brands’ iconic models. For last year’s April Fool’s joke, the brand revealed a concept watch you couldn’t even read the time off because everything was supposedly coated in VANTABLACK, one of the world’s darkest materials.
As it turns out, interest and demand for such a ridiculous concept was so overwhelming that H MOSER & CIE decided to follow through on the idea – with practical revisions, of course – and it resulted in the Venturer Concept Vantablack series last year. For 2020, the collection welcomes new Venturer Vantablack Black Hands models with an even stealthier look with barely-there hands.
