  • Catalogue Essay

    Massena LAB is the fabrication of William Massena, an established collector and veteran within the watch industry. The philosophy of Massena LAB is to collaborate with independent watchmakers to create limited edition watches that showcase a sophisticated character with persisting value.

    Even though Massena had worked with Habring² in the past, the Erwin LAB1 is the very first collaboration under the Massena LAB umbrella.

    Habring² was created by multiple Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Geneve (GPHG) award winner, husband and wife team of watchmakers Richard and Maria Habring, who after having worked for different brands set up their workshops in Austria in 2004 concentrating on making timepieces with features and complications rarely found in the market and at an affordable price point.

    The Erwin LAB01 was definitely a watch collectors had been hoping for, it was presented early 2019 as a limited edition of 50 pieces and it sold out within a matter of days!

    The movement is developed fully in house by Habring² and features a dead beat seconds mechanism meaning a seconds hand that advances perfectly once every second.

    Housing the movement is a surprising polished bronze “Calatrava” style case closer in color to vintage yellow gold than to the matte bronze we are more used to seeing. The black glossy dial with gilt printing is an homage to the gorgeous sector dials found in some of the most beautiful watches in the 1930s.

    Both historically important, numbered 01/50, and in pristine condition, this timepiece is definitely a must have for any serious collector of refined and horological important timepieces.
