HAUTLENCE PLAYGROUND LABYRINTH

HAUTLENCE Labyrinth, a playful horology creation from the Neuchâtel based luxury watchmaker, however does not boast time indicators.

In this world of connected smart watches, HAUTLENCE is introducing the Playground collection whose intention is not to tell the time but stop the time. Through the Playground collection, HAUTLENCE brings new chronometric element to the table, extending beyond the original goal of telling time. In an increasingly connected world where everything, including the time, is available at the push of a button, the Playground collection plays with the idea of absolute disconnect. Immersing yourself in the game provides a very necessary and pleasant slowness.

LABYRINTH is the first model from this collection, a useless yet entirely essential object: a game of skill worn on the wrist, a portable labyrinth requiring absolute concentration and skill.
LABYRINTH may not tell the time; however, it is perfectly aligned with the excellence in watchmaking that is embedded in HAUTLENCE’s DNA. Moving the crown activates a clever mechanical lift, which feeds the ball onto the board using a camshaft system visible through the transparent backing. The maze-like dial is carved in solid gold with a forged platinum ball. The titanium case is rectangular, going back to the brand’s roots.
