The H. Moser & Cie caliber HMC 324 is an in-house hand-wound mechanical movement found in the rectangular Swiss Alp series of watches, including their last editon: The Final Upgrade.

Some of the topics covered in this caliber listing:

HMC 324 vs HMC 324 NS:

There is a similar caliber HMC 324 NS. The HMC 324 featured here has a small seconds located at 6:00. The HMC 324 NS is based on the same caliber design, but without the small seconds indicator. The NS stands for no seconds.

Final Upgrade:

The HMC 324 is also found in the Swiss Alp Final Upgrade watch. This timepiece was announced on February 3, 2021. Instead of a seconds hand, the movement in this model was modified to features a small seconds disc that resembles Apple loading screen graphic from the dial side of the watch.

How it works:

How it works is that the all black dial has translucent cutouts in the shape of the loading graphic, and behind that is the disc attached to the movement. The disc is part off-white and part dark grey. The colors on the disc fade into each, so when the watch is running, it produces the appearance of the loading animation displayed on Apple watches when installing updates. The irony, of course, is that this is H. Moser’s final update to the Swiss Alp… a mechanical timepiece that never needs updated. The infinite loading animation is a constant reminder of that, as well as a reminder to disconnect and take a break from the connected world.

In H. Moser’s own words:

“The HMC 324 is a hand-wound movement, specifically designed for rectangular watches. It features a plug-and-play modular escapement and a power reserve indicator on the movement side, keeping the watch’s dial uncluttered.” -H. Moser & Cie

Imagine rolling into the apple store to pick up a new phone or something with one of these on the wrist.

It would be a waste of time. Literally lol. Long waits to talk to people who don’t know anything about watches or Apple products. I hate Apple stores.

I like the idea of power reserve being on the movement side instead of the dial. Makes so much sense!

Excellent read! Best I’ve seen on this piece. It was so hype onInstagram for a few days then never seen again. Did anyone actually buy one? It’s a cool watch.

Sad thing about watches and brands like this, you will never actually see it in real life.
