Habring², an award winning haute-horlogerie brand founded by Maria and Richard Habring, presents Perpetual Doppel, a high complication mechanical watch equipped with a perpetual calendar and a monopusher split second chronograph.
In 2014, on the occasion of the brand’s 10th anniversary, Habring² developed its own in-house movement. In 2019 Habring² is celebrating its 15th anniversary and presents a brand new creation, the Perpetual Doppel.
Base model of this new creation is the winner of last year’s GPHG, the Doppel Felix, which is now literally being crowned with a perpetual calendar. To create the perpetual calendar + monopusher split second chronograph movement, Habring² has partnered with the well-known manufacturer, Dubois-Depraz, from the Vallé de Joux.
The Perpetual Doppel captivates – which is unusual for a chronograph with a perpetual calendar – with an excellent readability of date, day of the week, month with leap year display, and moon phase, in addition to the time display and an intermediate stop function with 30-minute counter. The stainless-steel case made of Austrian Böhler Steel nestles discreetly on the wrist despite its stately 43mm diameter.
The silver dial with its red-gilded Arabic numbers produced using the “par épargne” technology is classically subtle. Diamond-cut, red-gilded hands for the time display and additional hands made of blued steel for the stop function provide clarity and a good overview.
Despite manually wound, the future owner doesn’t need to be afraid of having to correct the perpetual calendar. A total of four hidden corrector devices ensure that the display is corrected in the shortest possible time if necessary.
Retail price is €21,500.
