Hautlence whose ingenuity, technical aptitude and mastery of watch designs has manage to strike gold – rose gold that is with its introduction of an HLc 06 rose gold rendition watch included in its collection. If you are a newcomer to the Hautlence brand then sit back and be prepared to experience an innovative ride into the exquisite world of contemporary watch design.
Over two years ago Hautlence introduced its HLc 06 watch with a clean yet articulate design watch dial. It was designed with a distinct small round case and the clever placements of ornate co-adjacent hour and minute discs within the dial. Hautlence even went so far as to design an HLq 04 which included an elaborate honeycomb designed within the dial.
Hautlence has once again applied its flair for aesthetically appealing design in its Hlc 06 rose gold watch. It has a beautiful opaline chocolate dial meticulously accentuated by its rose gold case and familiar yet ornately elaborate co-adjacent hour and minute discs. The left side of the dial has what Hautlence refers to as an aperture in a rotating ‘jump-hour’ disc. Meaning the disc does not casually coast around the hour, but literally jumps to the each hour. The open minutes disc, on the other hand (pun intended), is read with an open arrow retrograde minute hand, which upon the minute hand’s arrival at 60 minutes, it too will jump back to zero instantly. It’s technical ingenuity in a luxuries timepiece.
This watch is technical artistry at its innovative best. The HLc 06 rose gold show cases with a 41 mm diameter case with sapphire crystals on the face and case-back. The dial exhibits elaborately ornate circular hour and minute discs which have a floating dimensional appearance. The crown is positioned at the 40 minute indication track on the minute disc or 4 o’clock position of the case. It also features Hautlence third in-house caliber movement which is a hand-wound movement with Côtes de Genève decoration and beautiful hand beveled bridges; and offers an impressive 40 hours of power reserve when fully wound.
Everything about HLc 06 rose gold watch including the very art of reading time is a statement of Hautlence clever and ingenious mastery of watch design. HLc 06 rose gold is a three dimensional timepiece which makes it a living masterpiece.
Like all Hautlence collections it is limited to 88 numbered pieces and comes with a sumptuous hand-sewn alligator strap with a choice of a pin buckle or folding clasp. It is just what the private watch collector ordered, a watch that most definitely colors outside the lines of ordinary watch making.
