Moser & Cie Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Vantablack Charming and mysterious.
For centuries, the moon has always attracted people’s attention.
This celestial body is playing with the ocean tides, collecting water and spills by changing the level of the seas for their own amusement.
Sometimes it can be a formidable force, and sometimes she seemed to fall asleep and completely disappears from view.
The latest model «Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Vantablack®» «H.
Moser & Cie »has decided to rethink the most poetic complication moon phase indicator for those romantics who like to speculate on the infinity of our universe, and enhance the beauty of the moon, surrounding it with something like” dark matter.
” For several years «H.
Moser & Cie »pleases his fans great line for hours« Concept », in which the watch house rather familiar design and branding, clear and open view, allowing the unique materials and finishes speak for themselves.
The expression of pure minimalism «Moser», a new watch show how modern high-tech materials such as vantablack, can be used to create an object of beauty astronomical.
The model «Endeavour» brand interprets the pointer of lunar phases and represents the moon in all its spectacular glory.
Located on a black matt dial, similar to interplanetary space, textured moon shining through a large window at 6 o’clock.
On the dial, no logo, no indexes.
Furthermore polished arrows and moon phase indicator, the dial is in fact a black void.
Its space and black – almost unreal.
To create this dramatic effect, the company has covered the dial «Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept» high-tech materials Vantablack.
This ultra-black finish, is considered the most dark matter known to man.
It is used for coating walls astrophysics telescopes and military – as a thermal camouflage.
Single track branding at Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept – is engraved with the letter “M” on the crown Created in 2014 godu «Surrey NanoSystems» British company, Vantablack consists of a vertically directed carbon nanotubes which are arranged next to each other, and has the unique ability to absorb 99.
965% of incident radiation.
The basic principle of its operation are that the carbon nanotubes are very high in comparison with their diameter – their length to diameter ratio is about 132,000,000: 1.
Therefore the photons falling on the coat is lost in the nanotubes, and substantially not reflected, transformed in the heat.
Vantablack changes the feeling of space.
So consider a surface coated with this material can be a problem, because it is difficult even to discern where it actually is.
Only under very bright lighting or at a very small angle of view can be seen on it barely noticeable reflection of light.
Black Vantablack so deep that defies study spectrometer.
Therefore, the clock is almost impossible to photograph.
Says Edward Meylan, CEO of «H.
Moser & Cie »,« watchmakers companies have gone through hell, trying to establish the arrow on the dial.
” “They could not see anything – he says, – In addition, given that Vantablack surface is easy to scratch, the task becomes even more difficult.
” Traditional trimmings mechanism Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Vantablack However, this is not the first attempt to use the ultra-ferrous materials in watchmaking.
In 2017, at the SIHH company «MCT» presented the clock «Sequential One S110 EVO Vantablack» vantablack with covered platform under the dial.
In the same year «Oficcine Panerai» presented «LAB-ID ™ Luminor 1950 Carbotech ™ 3 Days» (PAM700), although, in the case of the “Panerai”, the brand talked about earlier technology “coatings of carbon nanotubes.
” To create the Vantablack carbon nanotubes deposited (grown) using vacuum deposition (PVD) and subject to stringent requirements for temperature atmosphere (for the process requires pure vacuum), and the deposition material.
To date, «Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Vantablack®» has the black dial in the world.
And the more you look at it, the more notice that it behaves quite differently, as an ordinary black dial.
In the first place, this black does not exist by itself – rather, it creates a special effect which emphasizes the overall image of the clock.
It looks space-bottomless – a real black hole, over which the moon floats.
On the dial are placed four polished arrow classic for «Moser» leaf-shaped.
Fourth, short needle, similar to the tail guard, is a pointer to the time of day, which, together with the button and the crown is used for accurate time settings.
Located between 6 and 12 hours, the arrow indicates the morning time, between 7 and 11 hours – the evening.
Endless view dial frames polished steel casing diameter 42 mm, with typical family «Endeavour» charming groove along the bezel.
Smooth rounded contours and short ears allow the clock to sit comfortably on the wrist of any size.
The only trace of branding – it is engraved with the letter “M” on the crown.
Dial protects the curved sapphire crystal – and here Manufactory added an unexpected nuance.
It is obvious that the owner of the watch does not get lost in the space of the ultra-black dial, watchmakers used glass without anti-reflective coatings.
So, the effect of a black hole is not visible from any angle.
Mechanism Endeavour Perpetual Moon Concept Vantablack Despite its ultra-modern design of the facade, sapphire caseback reveals a view of the watch movement 28 jewels with all kinds of traditional Swiss finishing.

Caliber HMC 801 provides a 7-day power reserve and includes a power reserve indicator on the part of the back cover of the watch.
balance rate is 18,000 pg / hr (2.
Bridge balance looks great with its shiny upper surface, because of its fineness overlook the trigger with its trigger gold constantly operating wheel and the lever.
moon phase system represents extremely precise mechanism which can be set up to one minute.
The system can easily be adjusted via a button on the side of the housing.
The average orbital lunar cycle lasts 29.

Intricate wheel gears «Endeavor Perpetual Moon Concept» shows this interval so precisely that gap is only 0.
