H. Moser & Cie. has unveiled the Streamliner Tourbillon Concept Wyoming Jade as its premier offering for 2024—a timepiece that masterfully blends horological artistry and natural splendor. This limited-edition marvel, one of a mere 100 examples, is the zenith of Moser’s foray into integrating the allure of semi-precious stones with the precision of Swiss watchmaking. Crafted from solid red gold, this incarnation of the Streamliner sports watch series introduces a dial of genuine green jade, sourced from the rugged terrains of Wyoming, setting a new benchmark in the realm of high-end horology.

Embodying the same architectural silhouette as its Vantablack predecessor, the new Streamliner showcases a cushion-shaped case, meticulously forged from 5N red gold, measuring 40mm in diameter and 12.1mm in height with its domed sapphire crystal. Its distinctive integrated bracelet, sculpted from the same precious metal, echoes the case’s biomorphic design language, seamlessly merging form with function. Amidst this mechanical symphony, the true protagonist emerges—a dial of unprocessed Wyoming jade, thinly sliced and intimately affixed to a metallic substrate, revealing Moser’s dedication to natural beauty and craftsmanship.

Distinct from its counterpart, the Streamliner Tourbillon Concept Wyoming Jade exhibits a minimalist visage, with hour markers at only the cardinal points and a double baton at 12 o’clock, enhancing navigational clarity. The showstopper, a one-minute flying tourbillon, pierces the dial at 6 o’clock, doubling as a mesmerizing, albeit approximate, second’s indicator. In a bold departure, the absence of a logo and printing eschews brand vanity for an unadulterated showcase of the jade’s organic allure, entrusting time-telling to broad hands adorned with Globolight inserts.

At its heart, this masterpiece is animated by the in-house HMC 804 automatic movement, celebrated for its double hairspring mechanics that bolster accuracy, along with a three-day power reserve. Encased within, a solid 18k red gold oscillating weight ensures harmony in motion, resonating with the watch’s luxurious exterior.

Retailing at $119,900 USD, identical to its Vantablack dial sibling, the Streamliner Tourbillon Concept Wyoming Jade transcends the conventional sports watch archetype. This opulent affair, marrying rarified materials with intricate mechanical ingenuity, stands not just as a timepiece, but as a testament to H. Moser & Cie.’s audacious vision, bridging the realms of natural beauty and mechanical perfection for the connoisseur’s appreciation.
