Renowned watchmaker Heinrich Moser was also a wise entrepreneur and a visionary industrial pioneer. At the age of 22, he left his home town of Schaffhausen and embarked on a perilous journey which led him to St. Petersburg. After becoming the go-to specialist for the aristocrats, he founded H. Moser & Cie., one year later, in 1828, building a factory in Switzerland. Heinrich shared his passion for travelling with his son Henri, born in 1844. This thirst for discovery, which would be a guiding force throughout their lives, inspired H. Moser & Cie. to create a watch with an adventurous spirit: the Heritage Dual Time model.
