Avant-garde retrograde model – hautlence unveils the sporty HLRQ 04
La Chaux-De-Fonds, September 2014
More athletic and powerful than the previously launched round lines (HLQ and HLQ Classic), the HLRQ blends something of its predecessors, classicism with the sophisticated, sleek nature of the AVANT-GARDE watch family to which it is the latest addition. It is distinguished by an ultra-contemporary aesthetic giving it a much more lifestyle-oriented look. HAUTLENCE is introducing the fourth model in the HLRQ line, the sporty HLRQ 04. This powerful watch with its imposing 44 mm case band, made in circular satin-brushed black DLC-finish grade 2 titanium and featuring blue anodized aluminium horns, is a truly different style. Its in-house designed sapphire dial lends a sense of depth and transparency, while providing an admirable view of the manual-winding mechanical movement with its jumping hours and retrograde minutes (thanks to the famous HAUTLENCE connecting rod system) as well as its date display. The impression of weightlessness is accentuated by the superimposed discs arranged on several layers. Created in the HAUTLENCE Atelier d’Horlogerie Contemporaine, the HLRQ line is issued in non-limited series characterised by the same degree of excellence displayed through finely executed Côtes de Genève and hand-bevelled finishes.
