If you believed they put a man on the moon, man on the moon.
If you believe there’s nothing up his sleeve, then nothing is cool. – R.E.M.
Simple moon complication, and a special balance spring in each watch. Very similar on paper but a very different rendering of an obscure complication with a technical twist on each watch. The German influence on the Moser is apparent, as is the French influence on the De Bethune. I like to build on these “micro themes” within my collection and then move on to something else. It creates a trace of my enthusiasm for a peculiar aspect of watch collecting which may languish for a while, or disappear overnight. The watches within the collection are what is left after the infatuation is gone. A lasting reminder of a past obsession.
