Swiss luxury watch brand HAUTLENCE has released a new version of its iconic wandering hour wristwatch.
Founded in 2004, HAUTLENCE is known for creating new ways of reading the time. The Vagabonde Series 4 is firmly in line with this philosophy. The sapphire minute dial adds volume to the rhodium-plated brass base dial, which features a frosted finish. Inside this disc, the hours rotate around the central staff, turning on their own axis to mark the passing hours.
The finishes of this new timepiece are in line with the very exacting standards of the Neuchâtel born haute-horlogerie brand. Considerable technical skill and precision are required to create the sapphire minutes disc, as well as the half-moon motifs that decorate the hours.
Driving the rotation of the discs, the B30 bidirectional self-winding movement guarantees a minimum power reserve of three days. This calibre is based on a manufacture movement designed in collaboration with H. Moser & Cie., which HAUTLENCE developed in a modular way to create this stunning piece.
The steel case on the Vagabonde series 4 model adopts the TV screen shape favoured by HAUTLENCE. The reworked version features bolder curves and is water resistant to 10 ATM.
Retaining its balanced proportions, it is equipped with a bevelled sapphire crystal and a fluted crown with a rubber ring in the same colour as the integrated strap.
