H. Moser and MB&F revealed their collaborative piece, the one-of-a-kind H. Moser x MB&F Streamliner Pandamonium, for this year’s Only Watch charity auction that pays homage to music. The biennial fundraiser, scheduled for November of this year, is held to benefit research on muscular dystrophy.
Marking the second time the two watchmakers collaborated on a project, the H. Moser x MB&F Streamliner Pandamonium is a minute repeater with a three-dimensional movement that blends a quintessential Moser Streamliner case, fumé dial, and exposed repeater mechanism with MB&F’s penchant for the unconventional with a large central suspended balance wheel, and the miniature 5.35mm tall Panda DJ. The de facto MB&F mascot wears orange headphones and stands before a turntable with two paw-printed records. It is sculpted in white gold and hand-decorated. The miniature turntables, spinning in time to the mechanism’s rotation, are fitted onto the axis of the minute repeater hammers.
The 42.3mm H. Moser x MB&F Streamliner Pandamonium features a brushed and polished stainless steel case, sliding bolt with Teflon runner, screw-down crown with panda paw print, domed sapphire crystal, aquamarine fumé dial with sunburst pattern, hammers and gongs on dial, leaf-shaped hour and minute hands at 2 o’clock, centrally mounted MB&F 14mm suspended balance wheel, sapphire display caseback, and water resistance of up to 50m. The watch has an integrated brushed and polished steel bracelet with a triple-blade folding clasp.
Powering the H. Moser x MB&F Streamliner Pandamonium is the manual-winding Moser manufacture caliber HMC 906. It has 395 components, 37 jewels, a Straumann double hairspring mechanism, a minute repeater with hour, quarter-hour, and minute chimes, a large suspended balance wheel, and a 54-hour power reserve.
The H. Moser x MB&F Streamliner Pandamonium, reference 6906-1200, is estimated to go for around $339,000 to $452,200. For more information, please check out the H. Moser website and the MB&F website.
