In 2004 two young and talented experts create the brand HAUTLENCE - anagram of their hometown Neuchâtel - by launching a first in-house movement called HL, followed by the 2nd collection HLS based on the same patented movement.
Soft and aggressive, elegant and original, futuristic and provocative in its design the collection is produced in a limited edition of 88 pieces for each model. Originality and functionality are the dominant themes of the collection, underlined by the use of titanium, white gold, pink gold, alligator and rubber straps.
The originality of reading the time lies in the double device of a jumping hour coupled with a retrograde minute display. The small seconds hand is in a little dial at 5 o'clock; the intriguing rods drive the jumping hour; when the minute hand reaches 60 minutes, a device activated by a central spiral causes the end of the rod to arm a small spring with an inertia block that, in turn, drives the rotation of the hour disc.
