This young collection, which takes its name from the famous aerodynamic locomotives of the dawn of the 20th century, imagined by the independent brand headed by Edouard Meylan unveils a new watch boasting an exquisite green dial.

Between the 1930s and 50s, at a time where various means of transport were booming, streamliners, these aerodynamically-silhouetted locomotives and coaches, appeared on the scene cutting through the air and towing along high-speed trains and enabling city-to-city travel. The (a)typical style of these public transport vehicles inspired the independent manufacture H. Moser & Cie headed by Edouard Meylan to create the Streamliner model, a cushion-shaped watch. The Streamliner Centre Seconds, second opus of this fresh young collection, takes on a super Seventies look which makes it ever-so charming and definitely one of the finest watches of 2020.

This transparency reveals the inner workings and, above all, the gold-fashioned, openworked oscillating weight of the HMC200 caliber, an automatic movement which drives the hours, minutes and seconds and delivers a power reserve of 3 days.

A trio of silvered hands coated with white Globolight XP® hover over this jazzy hue fringed with hour markers and a minute tracker.
