FS: "Henry Moser" 40mm Rose Gold from 2002 - sapphire back, domed crystal - $5950
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
History:
In the early 2000s, Elegant Watch of Asia (big AD) commissioned this watch.
Martin Braun (Franck Muller Group) made the case and assembled the watch, and the movements used were NOS (new old stock) H. Moser movements.
--->
I believe that makes this watch the first serially produced Moser wrist-watch ever made. Truly special piece here and very few ever surface.
And a few years later, in 2005, H Moser & Cie was formed as a separate entity, and Elegant Watch of Asia, who commissioned this beauty, is now a H. Moser & Cie authorized dealer. That group that owns the Moser name now did not make this piece, however, as this piece was made by Martin Braun (Franck Muller Group)
This is a rare piece of Moser history and a near impossible watch to find, especially given it was only made for Asia.
This was purchased from a major global watch auction house (and both of them, starting with the letters C and S, have sold a few of these pieces, but otherwise, very few have surfaced).
Case: 40mm, rose gold
Movement: Manual wind
Buckle: HM rose gold buckle
Strap: Non OEM strap
Condition: Let's say 90%. Small hard-to-see mark on the crystal, overall very nice and clean
Accessories: Watch only
Absolutely gorgeous watch. The hands, the dial, the new old stock vintage movement, this is one of the nicest dress watches in person. Amazing attention to detail. Great size and case shape as well.
Priced at only $5.950, which includes FedEx insured shipment anywhere in the world, from here in San Francisco, CA. Wire only. Lots of references. Thanks for looking!
