Conquering the pinnacle of high end horology, Independent Swiss luxury watch maker HAUTLENCE expands its Atelier collection with the addition of the Tourbillon 01, an elegant timepiece powered by H. Moser & Cie.’s exclusive Calibre Tourbillon HMC 802. Equipped with a dual-time function, one-minute tourbillon, three-day power reserve and automatic winding system, the Tourbillon 01 introduces new synergies between two brands owned by the Meylan family company, MELB Holding.
The Tourbillon 01 reinterprets all of the design codes that are dear to HAUTLENCE and follows in particular the aesthetics of the very first HL05 timepieces, offering a three-dimensional dial with a multi-level reading of time. Demonstrating HAUTLENCE’s avant-garde approach to design, this new timepiece is housed in a round 44mm two-tone case crafted out of rose gold and black PVD-coated titanium. Built on several levels, the dial highlights a black enamelled base embellished by Côtes de Genève decoration. Rose gold numerals and hour markers appear to be floating above the base thanks to the addition of an intermediate sapphire crystal dial, resulting in a mesmerizing structural effect.
For the movement of the Tourbillon 01, HAUTLENCE chose to partner with Schaffhausen-based watchmaker H. Moser & Cie. and movement component designer and producer Precision Engineering AG (PEAG), both owned by MELB Holding. The Calibre HMC 802 is manufactured in-house by H. Moser & Cie. with a regulating organ produced by PEAG, a specialist in developing and building high-quality escapement components. Each of the movement’s parts have been finished and decorated by hand, turning the Tourbillon 01 into a beautiful wristwatch from the inside out.
