Yeah, the green fume Streamliner...  ???

SO GOOD. Plus the movement is just wonderful with its finishing man...

I love their sense of humor too, like their “Apple Watch” and their cheese watch. Way out of my price range but amazing stuff.

The movement on the (blue dial) streamliner chrono is out of this wold.

What is the consensus on H. Moser & Cie? Could someone point me to a place where I could gather more information on them? There seems to be very little on WatchUSeek...

I had very unchristian thoughts about the Vantablack moon-phase they did a couple of years ago...

They are nicely made, have lovely dials. The finishing seems excellent. And they have a real sense of humour, whereas other brands tend to be rather straight laced.

It does a lot of things for a lot of people. I always appreciate the people who double wrist: Apple Watch on one wrist, mechanical watch on another.

@henry_david I should have been more specific, sorry.

I meant this one.......

https://www.h-moser.com/product/swiss-alp-watch-5324-1205/

I've never seen the back of an Apple watch, but I bet it don't look like this.....

The last version of it is absolutely brilliant! It uses Apple's "spinning wheel" as the seconds combined with an amazingly black dial. If money were no option, it would be mine  :D

Yeah, that's the one. The first one (https://www.hodinkee.com/articles/h-moser-swiss-alp-watch-concept-black-minute-repeater-tourbillon) was a tourbillon minute repeater with the tourbillon exposed dial-side and no visible hand-set.

I've been tempted to do this. Not quite there yet, but can see the day.. the apple watch for 'tracking'/'stuff'. Rolley for time.. Irony being the apple keeps better time  :D

so have I. but I've felt that I'll do it for a few months because it's exciting and new, and then give up after that.. in which, I would've wasted money on an Apple Watch.

Oh I only wear the apple watch now. I put the rolley back in it's box  ???. It's more the inverse for me.
