Launch HLQ Classic

Launch HLQ Classic
October 2011

Following the launch of the HLQ line in 2009, Neuchâtel-based watchmaker HAUTLENCE has unveiled a sober and elegant version: the HLQ Classic.

HAUTLENCE HLQ* CLASSIC (*Q for ""quantième"" - French for calendar)

In 2009, HAUTLENCE created a stir by presenting its first ever round movement at Baselworld. Part of the HL family which already included the iconic HL and HLS models, the HLQ line featured its characteristic visual codes: jumping hours and retrograde minutes, enhanced by an instantaneous date, all within a diameter of 44 mm.

2011 brings a touch of sobriety and elegance. HAUTLENCE is expanding its HLQ line and endowing it with a classic air. Having explored the skeleton aesthetic, the brand has pared down the unrivalled HLQ Classic, twinning it with distinguished, simple dials. A style which is both informal and refined, with echoes of the HLC, the little sister of the HLQ, with its discreet elegance contained within 41 mm and exhibited at last year's Baselworld.

The HLQ Classic line is available in 18-carat white gold (HLQ 01 Classic), 18-carat rose gold and titanium (HLQ 05 Classic), 18-carat rose gold (HLQ 06 Classic – exhibited model) and titanium (HLQ 07 Classic and HLQ 08 Classic).
