H. Moser Streamliner Returns in a Compact, Refined Avatar

The latest iteration of H. Moser's Streamliner steps into the limelight, boasting a fresh case size and an enchanting dial. This refreshed model, now housed in a more compact 39mm case, preserves the Streamliner’s signature design inspired by high-speed trains of the early 20th century.

Aqua Blue Grand Feu Dial

The eye-catching element is the watch's "Aqua Blue" Grand Feu fumé enamel dial, reminiscent of a tranquil deep blue sea. Achieving this dial color is an intricate process, involving twelve firings across three pigments. True to H. Moser's philosophy, the dial remains unbranded, letting the craftsmanship speak for itself. This model also introduces an off-centered small seconds sub-dial at 6 o'clock with a lacquered finish.

Caliber 500

Yet, the most significant update lies in the heart of the timepiece. The new HMC caliber 500, entirely developed in-house, now measures 30mm by 4.5mm. This slim, micro-rotor movement not only reduces the case size but also boosts the power reserve to an impressive 74 hours.

The reduction in movement size translates to a more elongated, refined case shape. Despite the higher price point of CHF 29,900, this model’s refined aesthetics and new movement might well attract long-time admirers of H. Moser.

Our editorial take

The arrival of a smaller Streamliner was an eagerly anticipated event. Its sleek design offered an intriguing alternative in the world of integrated bracelet sports watches. The 1mm reduction in case width and 0.9mm in thickness, though seemingly minor, significantly enhances the Streamliner's elegance and wearability.

The Grand Feu enamel dial truly captivates, yet one could argue that the subtlety of the case redesign plays an equally pivotal role in the watch's allure.

From a brand perspective, the launch of the HMC 500 movement is a milestone. Edouard Meylan's ambition for a more compact movement has now been realized, paving the way for future designs.

While the Grand Feu enamel dial is undeniably exquisite, the inclusion of a separate small seconds sub-dial might raise eyebrows among purists. Some might prefer an uninterrupted dial to fully appreciate the enamel's beauty.

The Streamliner's new price bracket places it in direct competition with other high-end watches, which could challenge its position as a more accessible alternative to iconic models like the Royal Oak or Nautilus. Yet, Moser's confidence in its market and product might just translate into a successful venture.
