Vantablack® is the blackest black ever produced by artificial means. It is composed of carbon nanotubes that are 10,000 times finer than a human hair, aligned vertically alongside each other. When a photon hits Vantablack®, this
material absorbs 99.965% of the light. As our eyes need reflected light to perceive what we are looking at, Vantablack® is perceived as the absence of matter, a black hole. Although it’s resistant to shocks and vibrations,
Vantablack® remains a material which is extremely delicate to handle. H. Moser & Cie. had to put a structure in place and develop special processes to successfully work with this material. Once behind the sapphire crystal,
Vantablack® is protected as if in a safe. There, it can express itself completely and seems to radiate the full power of its perfect blackness.
An innovative material developed for astrophysics, Vantablack® is used in telescopes, and also by the military for thermal camouflage, to increase the stealth level of certain equipment. And that is exactly the role it is playing
here: H. Moser & Cie. is taking advantage of its expertise in Vantablack® to propose a new use for this material, creating exceptional timepieces. These extremely rare models offer high added value in terms of both their
innovation and their emotional scope. These models represent a switch to stealth mode, only revealing the time to those wearing them on their wrist, with the blackened hands keeping their secret well-hidden. This effect is further
reinforced on the Endeavour Tourbillon Vantablack® Black Hands model, with its DLC-coated steel case.
