The SIAR 2013 welcomes an avant-garde retrograde model
HAUTLENCE unveils the majestic HLRQ 01 and celebrates the commercial launch of the HLRQ line
Athletic and powerful, the HLRQ blends something of its predecessors, classicism with the sophisticated, sleek nature of the AVANT-GARDE watch family to which it is the latest addition. It is distinguished by an ultra-contemporary aesthetic giving it a much more lifestyle-oriented look. For its 4th participation in the SIAR (Salón Internacional de Alta Relojería held in Mexico from October 1st to 3rd), HAUTLENCE is introducing the third model in the HLRQ line, the majestic HLRQ 01. This powerful watch with its imposing 44 mm case band, made in circular satin-brushed black DLC-finish grade 2 titanium and featuring 18-carat pink gold horns, bezel, crown and push-button, is truly fascinating.
Its in-house designed sapphire dial lends a sense of depth and transparency, while providing an admirable view of the manual-winding mechanical movement with its jumping hours and retrograde minutes (thanks to the famous HAUTLENCE connecting rod system) as well as its date display. The impression of weightlessness is accentuated by the superimposed discs arranged on several layers. Created in the HAUTLENCE Atelier d’Horlogerie Contemporaine, the HLRQ line is issued in non-limited series characterised by the same degree of excellence displayed through finely executed Côtes de Genève and hand-bevelled finishes.
