As we’ve said, time and again, we are definitely fans of what the crew over at H. Moser come up with. Whether it’s playing with the darkest hue known to man, poking fun at smartwatches, or coming up with just lovely looking watches that happen to be technical marvels, they’ve got a lot going on. One of their releases from the past few years, the H. Moser Streamliner Chronograph, just got a streetwear mashup. Meet the H. Moser X Undefeated.

Now, you might be saying, H. Moser I know, but who is this Undefeated? They’re a sneaker and streetwear brand that started out in 2002, and have grown quite a following. In many ways, it’s not that different than Moser partnering up with the Armoury – take an existing design, and influence it by the partner’s design ethos.

Here, that takes the form of a darker tone on the H. Moser X Undefeated. You’ve got a dark anthracite DLC on the case and bracelet (a first for the brand), and then of course that dial. Here, it’s a Black Tiger Camo pattern (a signature of Undefeated) that shows up. This was accomplished with several layers of enamel to get the colors and pattern, and then of course there’s the fumé treatment applied to it.

Around back of the watch, the H. Moser X Undefeated has another unexpected treat. Right smack in the middle, there’s a bridge that happens to look a lot like a certain Caped Crusader that I’m a fan of. Apparently, this was not happenstance, and was done at the request of Undone (search as I might, I could not find the association between them though), and is just a clever treat for the collector.

With the movement, I also like that the horizontal clutch “reduces unwanted jerks” (it’s right there in the tech specs below!) but I’m told that only applies to the gear train, and not life in general. Alas. That aside, the H. Moser X Undefeated is still very much an H. Moser watch, taken in a different direction visually via Undefeated, and it’s a look that works quite well. If you’d like to get one of the 76 being made, you’ll need to take $55,000 to either Undefeated or H. Moser. Then again, it looks like their application process has closed out for this, so that ship may have sailed. Still hankering for it? Then perhaps their wall clock (from the same collaboration) will be of interest.
