H. Moser & Cie. has kicked off the summer season with a bold and irreverent collaboration. The ‘very rare’ Manufacture has partnered with globally recognised sportswear brand UNDEFEATED to create a limited edition, the Streamliner Chronograph UNDEFEATED.
Earlier this year H. Moser & Cie created a limited edition timepiece in two versions, the Endeavour Small Seconds Total Eclipse with a Vantablack® dial in collaboration with The Armoury, a highly specialised menswear brand. In June the manufacture has selected an other cool partner but with a totally different style.
Eric Cheng, one of UNDEFEATED’s co-owners and a keen fan & collector of H. Moser watches has clearly saw some similarities between the brands and contacted Edouard Meylan, CEO of H. Moser & Cie. As Eric explains: “With its unconventional approach and philosophy, H. Moser & Cie. is a sort of UNDEFEATED of the watch industry. Two of its key strengths are that it is bold and ahead of its time. It’s a very inspiring brand, which is why we decided to contact Edouard and his team.”
Eric Cheng wanted a watch with a bold, strong character so the result is a 42.3 mm sport-inspired model, in dark grey DLC-treated steel and with a Black Tiger Camo fumé dial. This motif – a favourite of UNDEFEATED – is engraved on the dial then given several coats of lacquer to create the colour. The finish is then applied to the lacquer to obtain H. Moser & Cie.’s signature fumé effect.
The Streamliner Chronograph UNDEFEATED houses a calibre developed jointly by Agenhor and H. Moser & Cie.’s teams. The hands of the watch are perfectly superimposed and jump sharply thanks to the calibre HMC 902. The movement was designed with the sole desire to enable a concentric display of the chronograph and time functions. (If you would like to know more about the Streamliner Chronograph & its calibre, please check out our article here.)
To complete the H. MOSER & CIE. × UNDEFEATED look the two brands have created a capsule collection which includes an H. Moser & Cie. wall clock, as well as a jacket developed exclusively by UNDEFEATED.
UNDEFEATED was founded in 2002 by James Bond and Eddie Cruz with the idea to open a sneaker boutique in Los Angeles specialising rare and unique sneakers and working with artists and like-minded individuals to create customized shoes and collaborative editions. Now it is known as one of the most recognized sportswear brands and well-curated retail boutiques across the globe. Since 2015 Eric Cheng is the CEO / CFO / co-owner of the brand.
The Streamliner Chronograph UNDEFEATED will be available online from June 22nd and in selected UNDEFEATED stores, as well as on the H. Moser & Cie. e-commerce platform.
