  • Catalogue Essay

    Habring² is created by multiple Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (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 movement found in the present Erwin was developed by the Habring team and features a delightful dead beat seconds, a mesmerizing complication first implemented in the mid-seventeenth century, but not used in wristwatches until the mid-twentieth century. The seconds hand will completely stop as the escapement continues to beat, not moving until one second has elapsed - at which point it will advance to indicate the next second.

    The cushion shaped case with large Arabic numerals, luminous dots and spade hands is reminiscent of the military pilots watches of the 1940s.

    Made in only 10 examples, the present Erwin Tribute to WWW was made for a collector group wishing to have a watch specially made for them, WWW standing for Watches, Wine and Wonders.
