    Habring² is much loved for its creative and honest brand of watchmaking, specialising in timepieces with inventive and uncommon features and complications at an affordable price point.

    Now a multi-time Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) award winner, Habring2 was founded by the husband-and-wife team of Richard and Maria Habring. Richard is best known for having worked at IWC in the 1990s, where he invented the condensed rattrapante mechanism and compact flying tourbillon that are both still being produced by IWC.

    In 2021, the brand collaborated with journalist and collector extraordinaire, SJX, to create a model the modern market has not seen before: The Erwin Star. A limited edition of 50 pieces that was sold out minutes after its launch.

    Paying tribute to the horological greats of the 1950s, the Erwin Star most notably pays hommage to the Rolex reference 6088 "Galaxy". Its rich blue dial is inky and saturated in color, contrasting beautifully against the yellow gold star-set numerals. Luminous material is filled in each star, giving it further vintage appeal. The movement is powered by the cal. A11s and features a dead beat seconds complication.

    Preserved in like-new condition, the timepiece is accompanied by all its original accessories.
