H. Moser & Cie. and Christie’s to auction a unique watch each year in support of Swiss watchmaking

Maverick independent watchmaker H. Moser & Cie. and auction house Christie’s are partnering to support the Swiss watchmaking industry. Through the partnership H. Moser & Cie. will supply Christie’s with a unique watch for auction each year, with the proceeds going to the Fondation pour la Culture Horlogère Suisse (Foundation for Swiss Watchmaking Culture).

H. Moser & Cie. did not want to use a precious metal case for this piece unique, as the use of materials from overseas would make the watch less Swiss Made.
