H. Moser & Cie Vantablack® Watch

H. Moser & Cie Vantablack® Watch - TheArsenale

Last April's Fools, Swiss watchmaker H. Moser & Cie showed a watch with a completely black face with seemingly no hands. The appearance was strikingly similar to that of Vantablack and one year later, they followed suit with the real deal. 

Unlike last year's joke, the new watch actually has hands but it has no numeral markings. It also uses Vantablack® instead of the retouched black dial. When people first saw the watch, the response was immense. Customers were asking questions in all seriousness which got the folks over at Moser thinking, we should probably make this watch. So they did, and the rest is history. The result of this was three waches, the 39mm Venturer Vantablack® in 81k white gold priced at $27,600. The bigger brother of the collaboration, Blackvanta XL measures 43mm and is priced at $26,600. Both these watches are hand-wound and offer hour and minute hands. On the movement side lies a power reserve indicator. 

Last but not least, the third watch is the Endeavour Tourbillon Vantablack watch with the most impressive look out of the three. With its stainless steel Amorphous Diamond-Like Coating, it has an all-black look. As suggested by the name, the watch has a one-minute flying tourbillon paired to a self-winding movement. This version is limited to 50 pieces, each retailing for $69,000.
