As paradox it sounds, in the watchmaking business the newcomers have it in their hands to earn respect with astonishing crafts that sometimes easily surpass the old-established names. Hautlence is one of those defying contestants and the HL 2.0 line displays what it takes to already supersede the Patek Philippes in a collector’s rotator. The innovative timekeeper displays the hours via a 12-link chain on top whilst the ruthenium and rhodium-plated dial keeps you informed of just the minutes in a sophisticated way. Just 28 pieces are available of each of the two Hl 2 watches, one in 18kt white or rosé gold. The case is 50mm in size and the unique automatic movement is made of 552 components.
