H. Moser & Cie – Where does this name H. Moser & Cie manufacture originate in? This story is known to very few people. Heinrich Moser was born in 1805 in Schaffhausen, he belonged to a dynasty of watchmakers and he made up his mind to be a watchmaker too. At the age of 22 he moved to Russia, where he successfully founded a watch empire known as H. Moser & Cie.
The watch production was launched in Swiss town of Le Locle, some watch details were purchased from Urban Jurgensen and Jaeger-LeCoultre companies. Producing about 70 calibers, H. Moser & Cie really had a crack, the company supplied Russian emperors with its watches, also a lot of watches were sold in Japan, China, Persia, France and America.
In Russia Moser started his career as a watchmaker, and finished it as a head of the largest trading house with its own workshop of watch assembly. Thanks to the founder of the company, for Russians Moser's name became synonymous with the products of the highest quality.

H. Moser made Swiss Burlington watches for Canadian Railway service.
