This is the blackest watch in the world, see nothing but the hands
Swiss watch company H. Moser & Cie has unveiled the Streamliner Chronograph “Blacker Than Black” at the Watches & Wonders exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland. This watch is coated with Vantablack.
Vantablack is a special material developed by a British company called Surrey NanoSystems in 2014 that can absorb 99.965% of visible light. Vanta stands for ‘Vertical Aligned Nanotube Arrays’ and that’s what gives it its unusual properties.
Vantablack is made up of vertically linked carbon nanotubes on a microscopic scale, where when light photons encounter a “forest” of carbon nanotubes, instead of bouncing out, they get trapped in it and reflect continuously. inside these tubes. So very few photons can escape and enter the human eye, anything coated with Vantablack will look like a magical patch of black.
Coated with Vantablack, the Streamliner Chronograph “Blacker Than Black” becomes almost invisible when placed against a black background, you can only see the hands of the watch.
The blackest watch in the world
H. Moser & Cie has no plans to sell the Streamliner Chronograph “Blacker Than Black” yet. In fact, the paintwork on the prototype on display at the show was too fragile to be worn or touched normally. However, the CEO of H. Moser & Cie says they are looking to improve the durability of the Vantablack layer so that it could one day become a collector’s item.
