Streetwear Meets Independent Watchmaking: Introducing The H. Moser X Undefeated Streamliner Chronograph

If I told you at the beginning of 2022, that at some point during the year we would see a collaboration between contemporary independent watch manufacturer H. Moser & Cie and the enduring California based streetwear brand Undefeated, most of you would’ve said, “There’s no chance.” Or some would have asked, “If that did happen, what would that even look like?” Well fast forward to mid June and here we are; the unexpected collaboration that we didn’t know we needed is actually a real thing with the H. Moser x Undefeated Streamliner Chronograph.

I must admit that I have had far more experience with the streetwear brand Undefeated than I have had with the independent brand H. Moser. I can recall waiting outside the Undefeated store in an endless line for the latest sneaker release and constantly tuning in to their website to catch the latest merch drop. But what I distinctly remember is how it was an event every time they released a product collaboration with another brand. Undefeated has always been mindful about the design of any product that bears their name, and they don’t just happily slap their logo on anything and call it a day. The same goes here for the H. Moser x Undefeated Streamliner as they combine Undefeated’s streetwear design influence with H. Moser’s contemporary take on the chronograph.


The dial for starters has Undefeated’s handprints all over it. Undefeated’s signature “Black Tiger Camo” pattern is laser engraved using a series of horizontal and diagonal cuts that at the same time subtly and strikingly contrast against the vertically finished dial. The H. Moser x Undefeated Streamliner has a more toned down dial color in dark gray, unlike the vibrant dial colors we’re used to seeing on a traditional H. Moser timepiece, but still retains the H. Moser customary fumé finishing. There’s also a sportier look to the H. Moser x Undefeated Streamliner with the “3,6,9” numerals, the Undefeated tally logo at 12, a minute track numbered at every five minute interval and a tachymeter display in the rehaut. There are two sets of hands originating from the center of the dial; one set displaying the hour and minutes, and the other set used to track the time elapsed with the flyback chronograph feature.

Powering the H. Moser x Undefeated Streamliner is the AGENHOR and H. Moser & Cie developed HMC902 movement. As mentioned above the HMC902 movement is a flyback chronograph meaning that the chronograph can be reset without having to press the start/stop pusher first to stop the running seconds hand. The minute change on the chronograph is also a neat thing to watch, as it makes its way around the dial with each tick every time the seconds hand has completed its sixty second revolution. This is most certainly a more legible way to read elapsed time rather than squinting at a subdial on a traditional chronograph. Through the display caseback, and thanks to the rotor hidden beneath, the architecture of the HMC902 self winding movement is really something to behold.

The H. Moser x Undefeated Streamliner keeps the distinctive Streamliner silhouette; a two-part 42.3 mm cushioned case, wide sloping bezel akin to an Omega Flightmaster and an integrated bracelet that smoothly transitions away from the case. This specific reference gets an anthracite gray DLC coating but that doesn’t hinder the radial brushing on the bezel that flows into an evenly finished integrated bracelet. The prominent “M” signed crown still calls 4 o’clock home and the same goes for the almond style pushers at 10 and 2 o’clock. The H. Moser x Undefeated Streamliner is rated to 12 ATM and that includes the activation of flyback chronograph via the pushers underwater.

The H. Moser & Cie x Undefeated Streamliner Chronograph is limited to 76 pieces and is set to release on June 22nd. The asking price? A cool $55,000. H. Moser & Cie x Undefeated
