A new, red-gold edition of Hautlence’s mind-blowing “Concept d’Exception” horological experiments, limited to 28 examples, the HL2.6 is so much more than just a wristwatch; it is a literal showcase of the brand’s extraordinary in-house talents, its regulating organ and fifth gear wheel tumbling 360º every 6 hours within a light-drenched geometric structure, glazed by six sapphire-crystal facets. Alternating sand-blasted, satin-brushed and hand-polished finishes lend the red-gold framework a highly three-dimensional and substantial presence on the wrist.

Like its predecessors in the HL2.0 collection, and faithful to the brand’s fundamental concept of offering a different way of reading time, the HL2.6 displays “half-trailing” jumping hours with a tiny caterpillar track. It advances by one “chain link” in 3-4 seconds without jumps or loss of energy, making it possible to admire the beauty of the movement every hour.


After 4 years of development, the in-house HL2.0 calibre was first shown in 2010 and officially launched in 2011 – evolving the brand’s founding concept of displaying time in otherworldly ways, yet going even further and cementing Hautlence among the greats of this era’s high-tech, conceptual watchmaking brands.

In The Know

“The central retrograde minute display may grab your attention, but it is only the appetizer. As they say on the late night commercials… but wait, there’s more.” WatchTime

“Easily within the "super watch" category, this is one of the few super watches I would wear on a daily basis. The fascinating movement, with its unique functionality, has a real enduring value and feels like, despite its peculiarities, it was designed to make sense.” Ariel Adams, aBlogtoWatch
