Another week and another Weekly Watch Photo. GEO made these photos of his Hautlence HL05 for a post telling about the excellent service he received from Hautlence.
GEO was very happy when he found this used Hautlence HL05, because this particular model is long sold out. Hautlence limits all models to 88 pieces, so it’s always a matter of time before this happens.
The white gold case measures 43.5mm horizontal, 37mm vertical and 10.5mm thick making it a very comfortable watch to wear. The sapphire crystal has beautiful angled edges and also the case back has a sapphire crystal.
One of the key elements of Hautlence watches is a jumping hour and a retrograde minutes indicator. The hand wound movement is based on an ETA/Peseux 7001 (gear train, regulation and several basic parts) and offers 40 hours of power reserve, beating with 21,600 vibrations per hour.
GEO wrote all about his excellent experience with the customer service Hautlence provided and the new Hautlence Owner’s Club, on Revolution Online and Timezone. Only too often we get to read not so good experience from owners of expensive timepieces, which makes this story even better. I can really recommend to read this and to enjoy more of GEO’s beautiful photos of this gorgeous watch.
