Moser’s Streamliner collection, a luxury sports watch with integrated bracelet, made a resounding entry in 2020 with a Flyback Chronograph. Unlike many luxury sports watches on the market, which vie for attention with their formulaic solutions, Moser’s design was fresh, verging on sensual thanks to its sleek, aerodynamic personality. A few months later, Moser unveiled a simpler time-only model known as the Streamliner Centre Seconds with a beguiling Matrix Green fumé dial, nicknamed by collectors the “Green Dragon.” Despite huge demand for the Matrix Green model (and the funky Smoked Salmon model), Moser took a break to refine certain aesthetic features of the watch designed to increase viewing pleasure from both sides of the case. Today, Moser welcomes back the Green Dragon accompanied by a new and very tempting Purple Haze reference, with the Mark 2 Streamliner Centre Seconds.

Before we look at the design and engine tweaks, it’s worth reassuring fans that nothing has been done to alter the streamlined ergonomics of the case and bracelet. The well-proportioned cushion-shaped case has a diameter of 40mm and a thickness of 10.3mm (12.1mm, including the sapphire crystal). Flowing seamlessly from the lug-free case, the slinky bracelet has articulated, tapering lugs that adapt perfectly to the wrist. The case is decorated with satin-brushed finishes, and the slightly recessed case middle is also brushed and sandwiched between two polished bevels. Following suit, the bracelet’s links are vertically brushed with contrasting polished bevels between each link.

The Matrix Green Streamliner Centre Seconds is back in the company of the new Purple Haze model with its on-trend purple dial. One of the design tweaks concerns the logo, which is practically invisible thanks to its new depiction in transparent lacquer. With no distractions on the dial, the sunburst fumé finish can work its magic as a host of colours emerge when the dials hit the light. From deep purple to blue reflections on the Purple Haze and from olive green to red gold on the Matrix Green, these dials are a source of never-ending fascination. The flat hour, minute and central seconds hands have Globolight inserts, an innovative ceramic-based material that contains Super-LumiNova.

Further changes can be appreciated on the watch’s reverse side, revealing the HMC 201 automatic calibre replacing the former HMC 200. While this movement is ‘new’ to the Streamliner family, it has recently been used inside the Pioneer Centre Seconds. With partially skeletonised bridges and a more openworked rotor, the viewing pleasure is increased, and more movement parts are visible. Giving the movement a more contemporary look, the skeletonised bridges feature an anthracite finish with Moser’s signature double stripes. The large balance wheel oscillates at a frequency of 21,600vph, and the barrel still delivers a solid 3-day power reserve.

The Streamliner Centre Seconds Matrix Green and Purple Haze share a retail price of CHF 21,900 (incl. tax). This represents a markup of CHF 2,000 over earlier models. For more information, please consult
