Introducing a follow-up to the original Swiss Alp Watch from 2016, Swiss watchmaker H. Moser & Cie has just debuted a $30,800 Apple Watch clone with a mechanical loading wheel called the Swiss Alp Watch ‘Final Upgrade’ (via MacRumors).
Calling it the “climax to the Swiss Alp Watch saga,” H. Moser & Cie says the Final Upgrade was created after a customer suggested the design. It features a rectangular watch face with curved, round edges, a crown at the side, and Apple Watch style lugs.
The DLC steel case features a Vantablack dial, one of the darkest known substances absorbing up to 99.9% of visible light.
Instead of a traditional seconds hand, the Final Upgrade features an Apple Watch-style loading symbol, which is of course poking fun at the Apple Watch. H. Moser plays on the theme of simplicity and “less is more” in its marketing materials.
“No updates required, no lousy autonomy, no unnecessary features, no annoying notifications, just the only reminder you ever really need: To disconnect from all the noise and cherish each and every moment,” reads a description of the watch.
H. Moser & Cie has created just 50 of the Final Upgrade watches. Check out the following video for a better idea.
