H. Moser & Cie. and Bucherer, the world’s biggest watch retailer, share values: Both are family-run independent Swiss companies and deeply committed to the Swiss-Made-Label and what it represents. H. Moser & Cie. payed tribute to Bucherer by creating & manufacturing the "Heritage Bucherer Blue Editions" model and the "Endeavour Diamonds Bucherer Blue Editions". Both wristwatches are stunning beautiful additions to the "Blue Editions" collection launched by Bucherer in 2016.

Edouard Meylan, CEO of H. Moser & Cie. told me: "We wanted to create models for Bucherer which were resolutely modern, with a design inspired by Moser timepieces from the early 20th century, in celebration of almost two hundred years of watchmaking".

I talked with Edouard about H. Moser & Cie. his family business, the H. Moser & Cie. watches and the new H. Moser & Cie. watches created for Bucherer. You should also know, that both companies are based in German-speaking Switzerland and were founded in the 19th century: H. Moser & Cie. in 1828 and Bucherer in 1888. In other words, 190 and 130 years ago ...
