The Moser Caliber HMC341 is the only perpetual calendar with manual rewind to incorporate the “Flash Calendar” display.
An exclusive mechanism that takes into account the variable lengths of the months of the year. In other words, the date on the watch will jump directly from the month end to the beginning of the following month without any intermediary position. During the changeover, for example from February 28th to March 1st, no unnecessary date will be visible. After 28th, the window on the dial will display directly the 1st. Obviously the perpetual calendar can be adjusted forwards or backwards and the month is selected with a small central hand pointing to the hour indices. At the back of the HMC341 movement there is a year indicator for leap years, which can be adjusted using a button.
Undeniably elegant, the curves and contemporary proportions of the perfectly balanced 40.8 mm diameter case of the new Moser Perpetual 1 will win over many. Set to beautiful effect on a crocodile bracelet with large scales, it is presented as a classic piece with a discreet charm that only connoisseurs will see at first glance. A timepiece with great class.
