HAUTLENCE - Tourbillon 02 &Tourbillon 03

Contemporary watchmaker HAUTLENCE enlarges its newly unveiled Tourbillon collection with the addition of two new editions, the Tourbillon 02 and Tourbillon 03. Just like the Tourbillon 01 presented in October 2015, these two elegant timepieces are 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.

Inspired by the design of the very first HL05 timepieces, the Tourbillon 02 and 03 follow the aesthetics of the Tourbillon 01, but come in new colour schemes. Housed in a round 44mm grade 5 titanium and steel case, the eye-catching Tourbillon 02 flaunts blue PVD-coated hour and minute hands, numerals and hour markers. The luxurious Tourbillon 03’s case is crafted out of grade 5 titanium and 18-carat pink gold, elegantly matching the red gold-plated numerals, HAUTLENCE logo, hands and hour markers on the dial.

Both of these new editions showcase HAUTLENCE’s signature three-dimensional dial. Built on several layers, the dial highlights a rhodium dial base embellished with Côtes de Genève. The numerals and hour markers seem to be floating above the dial thanks to the inclusion of an intermediate sapphire crystal dial, creating a mesmerising structural effect.

In addition to displaying a tourbillon at six o’clock, the timepieces also indicate a second time zone through a smaller hour hand that is hidden behind the main hour hand. The second time zone hand remains out of sight as long as the dual-time function is not in use, staying below the hour hand as it rotates around the dial.

Powering the timepieces is the Calibre HMC 802, an automatic movement manufactured in-house by H. Moser &  Cie., the  Schaffhausen-based  watchmaker  owned  by  the  Meylan  family  company,  MELB  Holding.  The movement comes equipped with a regulating organ produced by Precision Engineering AG (PEAG), a company also  part  of  MELB  Holding  that  specialises  in  developing  and  building  high-quality  escapement  components. Each  of  the  movement’s  parts  have  been  finished  and decorated  by  hand,  contributing  to  making  the timepieces beautiful from the inside out.
