In 1828, Swiss-born Heinrich Moser founded the original H. Moser & Cie company in St. Petersburg, Russia. After returning home to Schaffhausen, Switzerland in 1848, he established his company there. In the early 2000s, the brand name was resurrected, and, today, it is independently owned and family-run by the MELB Holding Group, owned by the Meylan family. Every watch is made in-house in Schaffhausen and each is hand finished and hand-assembled to exacting standards. H. Moser is known as a luxury brand that thinks outside of the proverbial box in terms of design and color.
