Vantablack is pointless under a shiny sapphire crystal that reflects a lot of light.

H. Moser Venturer Vantablack Quick Review of New Incoming 2022

 By: christianch : January 14th, 2022-16:29
This is a quick Review of the H. Moser Venturer Vantablack. I always loved the H. Moser "concept" idea: a dial without branding is certainly odd in luxury watches. The Dia in the the Venturer 39mm is not just black but in Vantablack®, a special material i...  

thank you FabR! is an amazing watch in person and the reflexion create some miniatures of your surrounding

Very nice!

I own the DSOTM BB Speedy…similar sentiments. It’s why I love that watch… The ultimate understatement it’s one of those watches that has to be part of a collection I don’t wear it as much as my other watches usually for black-tie events etc. but that’s wh...  

thank you for the photos, I also have a dark side of the moon black on black

and did wear it a lot last year ! I even brought it along to compare it with the moser both are very stealth but the moser is really more black the Omega DSOTM black black is just amazing too!

Huge congrats.

Excellent catch, love this uber black dial . A watch you have to see in person imho

thank you, absolutely very difficult to capture its beauty in the photos..

 By: christianch : January 14th, 2022-17:03
when I saw it for the first time in display I was like WOW even nicer than in the review I saw online!

thank you very much :) also admiring your new 2022 incomings

 By: christianch : January 14th, 2022-22:39
superb pieces too the vantablack is really special, almost like a black I never saw before. Very happy with it!

thank you! really stealthy

 By: christianch : January 14th, 2022-22:40
frankly I am getting a bit tired of the general hype in some watches. I don't wear since a long time some of the AP and PP I have, even Rolex sometimes feeel too much. I am in a very safe city but may be trophy pieces don't make me comfortable anymore!

Marvelous simplicity.

Your quality images are much appreciated on my end . Enjoy it thoroughly! Cheers, Filip

Thank you Filip! The curious thing is that the small dots of dust over the sapphire crystal

 By: christianch : January 14th, 2022-22:41
are not really seen without a macro lens so it might look messy but in reality looks much better somehow!

I was actually....

 By: InHavenPro : January 14th, 2022-22:57
wondering about that! It only really registers because of the plainness of the dial .

Excellent choice

 By: takman : January 14th, 2022-22:14
I’ve had my eye on this one as well, but I haven’t been able to see it in person yet. Congratulations and enjoy it in good health! Nice start to 2022 Chris

thank you! a nice start of 2022 too! definitely a watch to see in person due to the ...

really unique effect of the dial. very minimalist and ultra ⬛️

A bit gimmicky

Vantablack is pointless under a shiny sapphire crystal that reflects a lot of light.

yes you might have a point ! Now, in fairness I don't know if this version has more reflections than the other 2

 By: christianch : January 15th, 2022-17:24
in the hodinkee review www.hodinkee.com there is almost no reflection but I assume is thanks to their cameras? I noticed the reflection when I tried it but so far it doesn't bother me. I am just wondering how it would look with 0 reflections, may ... 

We need more unbranded watches. It should be enough for the wearer to know what he/she is wearing. Who wants to be a walking advertising plackard for a brand, eh?

 By: Rosneathian : January 15th, 2022-16:50
As for your Vantablack, it's excellent. I didn't realise it was the size it is, which makes it all the more appealing: modest, discreet, and engrossing. Thanks for the photos and the review. An enjoyable read.

thank you for reading!! I think the new moder model that have a "ghost" logo might be a good compromise

 By: christianch : January 15th, 2022-17:27
but I really love the "concept" line with nothing on the dial. I admired previous versions posted on the forum (mostly endeavour line with funky blue fumee I think). I can see that this is not for everyone as people want the logo of big brands but this ha... 

Gorgeous! Another unbranded black dial for completists...

It’s a far cry from a Moser, but here’s another minimalist dial... ...  

right really really far...

also what is it a steel strap ? 😖
