Swiss luxury watch brand HAUTLENCE has added a new model to its HL2.0 series of Concepts d’Exception collection. Limited to 28 pieces, the HAUTLENCE HL2.5 features a grade 5 titanium case and multilayer sapphire dial with red highlights.
The other existing models in this series are HL2.1, HL2.2, HL2.3 and HL2.4. All the watches from the HL2.0 collection are equipped with the HAUTLENCE HL2.0 in-house automatic calibre with half-trailing hours displayed by a chain, retrograde minutes and power reserve indicator.
