Hautlence HLRS 02

Hautlence are shining symbols of no-compromise creation.

The brand does not subscribe to convention, choosing to dispense with ‘normal’ hour and minute hands. However, despite adopting unusual and highly innovative ways of imparting time, the company’s timepieces do not eschew legibility and practicality.

This stunning watch features the HL calibre in-house movement which powers the jumping hours and retrograde minutes hands.

Totally unique and very original in appearance this watch will certainly make heads turn. At 42mm x 46mm it really is the perfect size for any wrist.

There are a couple of surface scratches on the left-hand side of the bezel (visible on the images) but otherwise, this timepiece is in perfect condition.

Complete with box and papers.

Description

Hautlence HLRS 02

Hautlence HLRS02 – Hautlence reinvents the proclamation of time. Since its inception, the Swiss brand from Neuchâtel has been crafting watches which sidestep the customary hour and minute hands and display the prevailing time using highly innovative means. The Avant-Garde HL RS 02 proves no exception.

The display consists of jumping hours, retrograde minutes, employing an unusual rod-type system, and small seconds. Everything moves with absolute precision with the hour changing exactly as the retrograde minute jumps to zero.

The case successfully blends bead-blasted grade 2 titanium with fine -brushed 316L stainless steel. The sloping edges of the bezel are polished to a mirror-like gleam and the crown is adorned with the Hautlence logo. A sapphire crystal adorns the grade 2 titanium case-back. All the materials of the watch coalesce wonderfully and grant this unusual timepiece with a distinctive character all of its own. Measuring 42 x 46mm, the case features an arcing case-back which is anatomically suited to the wearer’s wrist.

A hand-wound, in-house calibre powers the Avant-Garde HL RS 02. Despite its modernity, the movement features traditional finishes such as perlage, Côtes de Genève motif and hand-chamfered bridges.

Overall, the Avant-Garde HL RS 02 redefines the appearance of a timepiece with highly original indications. However, the Swiss brand continues to respect the high-level craftsmanship for which Swiss watches have become known for.

There are a couple of surface scratches on the left-hand side of the bezel (visible on the images) but otherwise, this timepiece is in perfect condition.

Complete with box and papers.
