Wtf Moser Frankenwatch

Post by nweash » Wed Jan 10, 2018 5:44 pm

I thought this was a joke...

Apparently it’s a tribute to all the original watch designers before they became “marketers”.

So it’s got AP bezel shape. Is that a Hublot lug style? PP dial? Panerai numerals, crown, and crown guard. GMT inlay. Some shitty replica looking open heart. Breguet hand? IWC font.

What else am I missing besides the point?

I find the idea behind it humorous. Master trolling of the old guard.

Question: Is it possible to make a watch that's clearly worse than the worst Hublot?
Moser: FUCK YES!

PAM numbers plus nautilus dial. Clearly it's a joke. They should have gone for merc hands and a cyclops though.

I kinda like the Moser Pioneer central seconds blue dial. This other thing must be a joke.

OK, and IWC style name. I take it back. It's genius.

It also has IWC 3536 style integrated bracelet. Planet Ocean hands would've been a nice addition. That was a missed opportunity.

A joke that would have been fine if it was photoshop (I assume it is). If they actually made this, that's a damn waste of money (I mean if you're gonna put a GMT bezel on it, at least make it a real GMT).

As is, it looks like a stupid, C-grade fake.

This is clearly a joke. Just look at the size of the crown hidden inside the CG and how close it is to the bezel - it looks completely unusable.

Of course it is a joke, jeez :lol: . They actually made a watch out of cheese not so long ago as a similar statement.

Its a huge dig at other brands because Moser is #savage.

The video is funny.

It's real, and per Hodinkee: To be auctioned after the SIHH. I guess if you want a 1 watch collection, this covers all the bases in 1 lol.

The video makes me an even bigger fan of the brand. Too bad I can't afford one.

I recommend first rereading that Vertex thread and Jason's article, then watch the Moser video.

For those who have not seen them, the "Apple" watch and the Cheese watch from Moser:
