Inspiration

Overview

As well as telling the time in extraordinary new ways, Hautlence is now stopping time altogether. Still crafted in the “haute” horological way, with the sort of exacting precision expertise we’ve come to expect from Hautlence, this portable maze-and-ball game requires the utmost concentration and skill, which as well as letting us pause and focus for a moment, it allows us to reconnect to our childhood – a time when we allowed ourselves time to let our imaginations run wild, cut off from the realities of life. Remember that?

Rather than setting the time as usual, moving the crown activates a clever mechanical lift, which feeds the ball onto the board, or “dial”, using a camshaft system visible through the caseback. The maze itself is carved in solid gold with a forged platinum ball, with the titanium case in Hautlence’s signature rectangular shape.

Inspiration

In our increasingly connected and “always on” world, Hautlence is giving its customers not the opportunity to buy a timekeeper, but rather the opportunity to buy stolen time. The first game in what will be an ongoing “Playground” collection is pulled from CEO Sandro Reginelli’s youth – an out-dated maze game he played when he visited his grandparents.

In The Know

"The Labyrinth is an exercise in irreverence from a brand that takes watchmaking seriously while allowing creativity to define direction."  Quill & Pad

"I soon realised I had, for a few brief moments, escaped the hubbub synonymous with modern-day life and enjoyed the luxury of taking a little ‘time out’."  Escapement Magazine

"This is not a watch. It represents time in an abstracted sense, evoking childhood games and nostalgia, compelling you to take your eyes off the clock and forcing a different evaluation of your time." Revolution
