The Stunning Hautlence Vortex Primary Watch Looks Like Fun
It’s getting increasingly difficult to stand out in the deluge of creative and beautifully designed watches on the market but, every now and then, we come across something incredible, like the new Hautlence Vortex Primary watch. Unveiled at SIHH 2016, this eye catching timepieces manages to be fun, quirky and sophisticated – all at the same time.
Inspired from the works of several artists, the Hautlence Vortex Primary watch stands out due to its beautiful and colorful geometric design cues. There are 19 different glass panels, made out of sapphire, ruby and blue spinel glass, giving the visual impression of a stained glass window, which looks beyond stunning!
The 48-gram body of the Hautlence Vortex Primary watch comes with a 50-mm wide case made out of black PVD-coated grade 5 titanium and the colorful glass wasn’t used just for the show. It allows light into the case, also giving us a colorful view in the inner works of the Hautlence HLR 2.0 calibre – made of 522 components, with a 21,600 bph frequency and a 40-hour power reserve.
The Hautlence Vortex Primary watch doesn’t feature a dial per-se, as the minutes scale was printed directly on the sapphire crystal, which is another interesting feature of this timepiece. Introduced as a limited edition of just 18 units, the artistic Hautlence watch stands out as a rather colorful example of high-end horology, with the price-tag standing at $199,500.
