H. Moser & Cie was founded by Heinrich Moser in 1828 in St. Petersburg, Russia.  The following year, Moser opened a watch factory in Le Locle, Switzerland.  In addition to his passion for watches, Heinrich Moser was also an industrial pioneer who helped local industries such as building a dam and turbine in the Rhine.  In 1953, H. Moser & Cie transitioned from pocket watches to wristwatches.  In 2006, the Moser Perpetual Calendar won the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix.  H. Moser & Cie has since been highly regarded by collectors as an exclusive independent Swiss manufacturer.  They are known for creating highly complicated watches that are simply elegant with remarkable brevity such as the Endeavour Concept Tourbillon Minute Repeater, Endeavour Flying Hours, Endeavour Moon Concept, Venturer Tourbillon Dual Time, Pioneer Perpetual Calendar, Swiss Alp Watch Minute Repeater Tourbillon, and Heritage Perpetual Moon.
