Hautlence HLRQ01 from the Avant-Garde Collection

This week, from October 1 through 3, the 7th edition of  SIAR (Salon Internacional Alta Relojeria Mexico) is being held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Mexico City. At this important by-invitation-only show, dozens of top brands are exhibiting their latest creations, and some are unveiling new timepieces.

Hautlence, in fact, is releasing the never-before-seen HLRQ01.  We’ve written about Hautlence many times here before. It is a cutting edge brand that was first founded in 2004 by Guillame Tetu. The newest Hautlence HLRQ01 is part of the Avant-Garde Retrograde Collection – in the round.  The Avant-Garde line was launched in 2012 as a more available production series. Heretofore, there were no round watches in this line. Now, Hautlence incorporates the codes of the Avant-Garde line with influences from its first round watch (that was unveiled 4 years ago)

The dial of the new watch is made of multi-layered sapphire

for the all new HLRQ.  The watch features a 44mm case, made from steel with or without black and titanium DLCcoating.  The sapphire dial offers transparency, depth and dimension. The in-house mechanical hand-wound movement offers jumping hour and  retrograde minutes via the Hautlence connecting rods system.

In all, this is an amazing work of art, craftsmanship and high-tech materials.  These pieces won‘t be available to purchase until 2014, but keep your eyes open – these watches can be had for an incredible price of $32,100 to $39,400 – a steal  for a Hautlence.
