H. Moser & Cie has just released a limited-edition Pioneer Centre Seconds and a Pioneer Tourbillon watch dedicated to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis research at the Duke ALS Clinic, one of the largest care centers in the world.

In honor of Loy Stewart, a businessman (also a well known watch collector) local to Charleston who owned Detyens Shipyards, Steward was diagnosed with ALS in the early 2000s and worked with his close friend, George Wendt, and H. Moser. “We are very excited for the H. Moser Pioneer “CURE ALS” timepieces,” says George Wendt. “Loy, unfortunately, passed between the design and production of the watch after a 19-year battle with ALS. This watch will help fund research at the Duke ALS Clinic and keep his legacy alive.”

The watch’s green fumé dial was inspired by a book Loy used to gift to individuals he met and embodies his positivity for hope and belief in humanity. For these limited edition watches, a minimum of $16,000 USD is required to obtain 1-of-15 Pioneer Centre Second watches while a minimum of $55,000 USD is required for the 1-of-5 Pioneer Tourbillon. Partial proceeds will go towards a professorship for a scholar in the field of neurology specializing in ALS in the School of Medicine.
