Streamliner Flyback Chronograph in Funky Blue has just been released by H. Moser & Cie in response to the accolade.

Moser's Streamliner Flyback Chronograph, which was released earlier this year, is not entirely surprising to those who followed it closely. It has been announced that the watch has just won the Grand Prix of Horlogerie de Genève's Chronograph Watch Prize. While the Streamliner Flyback did not win without a great deal of competition, it was also a very elegant watch that was very well designed and the movement was ingenious. Moser announced today the second edition of their Streamliner Flyback, this time with Moser's stunning Funky Blue fumé dial, and the $43,900 price tag has helped Moser remain at the forefront of traditional horology.

One of the most striking features of the Streamliner Flyback movement is that it does not have a centrally mounted winding rotor, which is the most obvious feature of the movement. Despite the fact that it is on the dial side of the movement, there is no doubt that it makes it easier to see the complex structures on the chronograph in full. There is no end to the delights this movement brings to its wearer, from the beautifully chamfered edges of the bridges and components to its exquisite hand-polished surfaces, which many regard as the hallmarks of a "real watchmaker."

Moser's movement is also notable for the fact that all flyback functions take place on the central arbor, which is a first for watchmaking as well. In this way, subdials are eliminated, allowing the beautiful Funky Blue fumé dial to radiate uninterruptedly, and the watch face appears sleek and discreet as if it were just a time-only watch with a stopped seconds hand. When the chronograph is activated, the seconds-counter jumps into action while revealing the minute totalizer, which waits 60 seconds before changing. It is an exciting movement to operate.

This combination of case and bracelet has a sporty elegance that cannot be overstated. Although the majority of the surfaces are brushed in a silky ultra-fine manner, highly polished accents, such as those between the links on the bracelet and along the case's sides, accent the soft reflections of light. In this color, the Streamliner is bolder and fancier than its charcoal gray predecessor due to the luster of the steel finishing surrounding the Funky Blue fumé dial.

The bracelet is carefully integrated into the cushion case and is surprisingly compact, making it comfortable on a wide range of wrists. The 42 mm watch is very compact, partly because it does not have lugs. However, it has enormous wrist presence. In addition to casting a halo around itself, the dials seem to be illuminated from within.

The Moser Streamliner Flyback is a now prize-winning watch that will not only be a joy to wear and own, but will also likely be a wise investment for those seeking a modern example of watchmaking horology that pushes forward watchmaking traditions while at the same time deeply respecting their origins. It is thankfully the case that Moser has not limited this edition, and we look forward to seeing many more versions of the Streamliner Flyback in as many colors as Moser cares to produce.
