Hautlence HLc


The Feminine Side – Chic, Charming and Captivating in a Circular Form

Since its inception, the Hautlence brand, based in the heart of Neuchâtel, has set its sights on creating innovative watchmaking concepts and bringing them together with art, sometimes contemporary or classical. By playing on the repetition of circles right down to the arched sections reserved for reading the minutes, the round HLc remodels its dial with the cerebral pleasure of knowing that its geometry is making an allusion to the
repetitive nature of infinity.

The thinner 41mm case has been redefined based on the DNA of the HLQ, retaining the latter’s pure lines. Mother-of-pearl dials featured in soft feminine hues adapt to the design in conveying the theme of an avantgarde construction. Thus, the four horns are screwed to the outside of the case, enhancing the adjustment of the pivoting strap to fit the most fashionforward feminine wrist as elegantly as possible.

Playing again with the references of the HLc Collection, Hautlence has now reached a new point in defining their aesthetics.

Despite the fact that Hautlence already produces each references to just 88 pieces, it still strives to create for its clientele the ultimate in exclusivity by offering a limited choice of colors and materials of case, dial, and straps to customize unique pieces to fit each personality. Mirroring the fact that every woman deserves to be an original.

A real watchmaking manufacture exists primarily through its capacity to keep on producing calibers that differ from their predecessors. Attuned to its various markets, Hautlence has clearly understood that it is not enough just to extend the range by regularly changing the shapes or materials used to respond to the expectations of its female clientele.

With its 3rd caliber, Hautlence seals its entry into the circle of brands that have chosen to inscribe their names in watchmaking history. By offering a movement that has been developed and manufactured independently as part of its collection, the young manufacture is revealing to skeptics the extent of its intention to transcend time.

The case, in stainless steel, measures 41mm x 9mm. It has an AR-coated sapphire crystal, a sapphire display back and is water resistant to 30 meters.

In-house mechanical hand-wind caliber with 24 jewels, 21,600 vph and a power reserve of 40 hours. Functions are jumping hour, retrograde minute and running seconds. It features a fine brushed galvanic treatment, manually angled bridges and Cotes de Geneva finishing. It bears an identification and numbering plate on the back.

The strap is hand-sewn genuine Louisiana alligator with square scales with an adjustable pin bar to fit on the case and horns, which can be changed by the customer, and an Ardillon buckle.

MSRP starts at $54,800 to $60,300.
