HESJY is a small luxury watch brand based in the traditional watch making region Fleurier in Switzerland. At Basel World 2017, HESJY presented elle-one, the brand’s inaugural collection of watches. The elle-one was designed by Joël Laffly and the movement of the watch was produced by LTM (Le Temps Manufactures) SA located in Fleurier.
Especially designed for modern, astute women, this timepiece brilliantly combines freedom and control, simplicity and complexity, smallness and greatness, luxury and restraint, all while respecting long standing traditions in luxury watch making.
The rectangular shaped watch case houses the baguette movement LTM 1000, one of the smallest mechanical manual winding calibers in the world.
This hand-wound movement has a power reserve up to 40 hours and drives hour and minute hands. This tradition rich, Swiss mechanical movement can be admired through the sapphire crystal case back.
The aesthetically elegant and well proportioned case hides a discreet crown, which is visible when viewing from rear side of the watch.
Presented in stainless steel, pink or white gold case and with diamond set versions, the watch is offered in two case sizes: Small version measures 16.8 mm x 29.2 mm and Medium version has dimensions of 20.2 mm x 35 mm. The elle-one is also available with quartz movement.
Water resistance of the watch is 3 atm. Price range is 870 CHF (price of stainless steel quartz model) to 11770 CHF (price of full diamond set rose gold manual winding model).
