“Guy´s Eclectic Choice of The Week”: Hautlence – HL 2.0
Photographer Guy Lucas de Peslouan shares his images and thoughts on the Hautlence ´HL 2.0`
A few thoughts by Guy:
Presented as a preview in 2010 and launched in its final version in 2011, after more than 4 years of development, the HL2.0 collection embodies the second generation of HAUTLENCE watches.
Faithful to the founding idea of the brand, based on a different reading of time, this collection goes even further and definitely consolidates the brand within the most prestigious contemporary watchmaking houses.
The HL2.0 models display the jumping hour, semi-trailing, retrograde minutes and the power reserve indication.
Developed and industrialized by the teams of the Neuchâtel brand, it is the first collection to offer a mechanical manufacture movement with automatic winding.
Three patents for an exceptional piece:
- The 1st patent revolves around the semi-trailing hour chain. Every 60 minutes, the chain turns in 3-4 seconds and without shocks.
- The second patent relates to the regulating organ integrated into the mobile rod movement. By its rotation, it compensates for the effects of gravity.
- The third patent deals with the contribution of the two barrels of the movement. The main barrel is charged by the automatic system and transmits the energy required to charge a second barrel, dedicated exclusively to driving the complication.
