Just about six weeks ago, on January 8, Atimelyperspective ran A moment in time with Hautlence founder Guillame Tetu, wherein we disclosed information on the then soon-to-be available HL2.0. Well, the innovative watch is here – opened up in all its glory for those who love Hautlence like I do – to take a closer look.
The watch holds three patents, offers a retrograde minute indication (the minute hand moves from 0 to 60 and then returns back to 0 to start its count again) and a numeric (digit) jump hour indicator (which actually moves on a chain link that slides sideways in our increments to reveal each new hour). The movement is made in-house by Hautlence. The TV-screen case features a sapphire crystal that wraps around the side for a more revealing look inside. HL2.0 retails for $200,000 in rose gold and $219,000 in white gold.
