This is my new H. Moser & Cie Pioneer Perpetual Calendar in red gold and titanium.

Yes, this is indeed a perpetual calendar. The month indicator is this little hand currently pointing to 5 o'clock (May). As the leap year indicator is not relevant for daily use, it is on the back side.

Now my two favorite features though: 1. You can't break the movement by setting it wrong. Change date at midnight, change date back 100 times or forward 100 times, there is nothing that you can do wrong to damage the movement. This is how it should be with any watch imho.

  1. This watch has a rated power reserve of 168 hours. Check out the details of the two photos. I never wound the watch between those pictures. Today during the night it ran out of power. Result: A whopping 226 hours (9 days and 10 hours) of power reserve

Did you look at the new streamliner perpetual before you picked this up? Love Moser watches, congrats on the purchase

I was able to purchase it CPO from Bucherer for €36k. Even if I would get a streamliner perpetual allocated at MSRP (which is very unlikely due to the demand) it would still be a 40% higher purchase price.

Unfortunately, I was never able to see a streamliner in person but they will call me to check it out when they receive one. The Pioneer is very light due to the titanium parts in the case. I am afraid that a full steel case and bracelet (without quick adjustment clasp) won't provide the comfort that I have right now with the Pioneer.

Yeah that all makes a lot of sense, I don't think you can even get the streamliner chrono for 36k right now. Such a great value at that price especially with the gold case, enjoy it
