Bucherer Blue Editions x H. Moser & Cie
The Bucherer Blue Editions collection is an homage to the colour blue, paying tribute to Bucherer’s close ties to the world’s top watch brands. To date, 15 watchmakers have teamed up with Bucherer to create 29 different blue-themed timepieces for watch connoisseurs in search of special something. The newest models, the Heritage Bucherer Blue Editions and the Endeavour Diamonds Bucherer Blue Editions, were created by H. Moser & Cie. and feature an unexpected twist: they showcase the colour blue on components of the movement.
Long-standing partners H. Moser & Cie. and Bucherer have much in common; both are family businesses that trace their roots back to the nineteenth century, and both share the same core values with their commitment to embodying the meaning behind the Swiss-made label. Together, the two luxury powerhouses have created a decidedly modern duo for the Bucherer Blue Editions collection. For the first time ever, the colour blue is featured on components of the in-house automatic HMC 200 calibre as well as on the interior of the strap. The balance wheel, bridge and rotor were also designed in blue and feature embellishments that lend the escapement a deep and entrancing hue. This was made possible by Precision Engineering AG, an affiliated company of H. Moser & Cie. that specialises in the design, manufacture and assembly of sophisticated watch components.
“Both of these elegant timepieces will enrich the Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS family with their refined interpretation of the colour blue. Integrating the colour in the movement is an exciting first for the collection,” says Patrick Graf, Chief Commercial Officer at Bucherer.
With its round case and classic elements, the Heritage Bucherer Blue Editions is reminiscent of the Moser timepieces from around 1900. The stainless-steel case features pointed lugs and a notched crown. A traditional railway-track-style chapter ring and the shape of the hands highlight the classic style of this watch. Their Super LumiNova® coating forms an excellent contrast to the fumé dial, the colour of which is typical of H. Moser & Cie. timepieces.

The case of the Endeavour Diamonds Bucherer Blue Editions is perfectly proportioned and also crafted from stainless steel. It features a new diameter of 38 millimetres. The bezel is encrusted with 60 diamonds that make the fumé dial of this timeless watch look even more radiant.
