The year 2024 is off to a great start with brands such as H. Moser & Cie. presenting their first launch of the year—a show-stopping timepiece with a semi-precious stone dial in a contemporary makeover. Showcasing the brand’s confidence in their latest watchmaking marvel, the Streamliner Tourbillon Wyoming Jade does away with the logo on the dial, and features hour markers only at the cardinal points, and an unobstructed view of the one-minute flying tourbillon at six o’clock, ensuring it stands out with its minimalist refinement. This is certainly a nod to the ‘quiet luxury’ movement (being without a logo) that’s here to stay. Here’s a mood that will stand the test of time and will ensure you have a contemporary yet timeless luxury wardrobe.

The production of jade dials showcases the expertise of skilled lapidary as it incorporates a blend of traditional craftsmanship and modern technology. Utilising CNC technology, the real challenge lies in delicately slicing the jade to a thickness of just 1 to 1.5mm, rendering it quite fragile. Following this delicate process, the slice undergoes meticulous finishing and painstaking hand polishing which is carried out with care to eliminate any chips or scratches while accentuating the natural brilliance of the jade before being affixed to the dial plate.

There are strict handling protocols in working with the stone. During all processes, it must be cut and polished not only with precision but with extreme care, in a temperature-controlled environment, to prevent it from cracking or breaking. A single crack or scratch can render the dial sliver useless, and the cost of such imperfections can amount to thousands. Since this particular shade of jade is rare, the watch is limited to 100 pieces.
