We’ve written about Hautlence many times before here. Now we bring you this classically elegant rounded HLC06, created in a limited edition of just 88 numbered pieces. It features an opaline chocolate dial in an 18-k rose gold case measuring 41 mm in diameter. To create the watch, the brand has rebuilt its house movement around the jumping hour and retrograde minute readouts, which are driven by the ingenious HL patented mechanism that combines the sliding movement of the snail feeler spindle’s retraction with a gold inertia block acting as an inertia wheel and providing the energy required for the disc to jump.
This third in-house hand-wound mechanical caliber, with its Côtes de Genève and hand beveling decorations on the bridges, plays with the concept of repetition of circles, right down to the sectors on the minute display arc, the redesigned face of the HLC represents a geometric reference to infinity. A complex piece with a streamlined aesthetic, the HLC06 displays almost architectural features, such as the skeleton hour and minute that surrounds and semi-opaque hour disc.
