  • Catalogue Essay

    - Founded in 2004 by Maria and Richard Habring, an independent Austrian watchmaking atelier has emerged as a powerhouse for exceptional design in the world of horology. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the esteemed online horological publication, Monochrome, the atelier unveiled a remarkable collaborative timepiece.

    - Entirely assembled in Austria, the watch draws inspiration from 1940s chronographs and features a hand-brushed stainless steel case. The highly coveted salmon dial, adorned with a two-tone finish, adds depth and creates a captivating contrast with the case. The vintage-style sector dial, precision railroad tracks, and telemeter scale contribute to the overall balance and appeal of the design.

    - At the heart of this timepiece beats the remarkable Habring2 A11C-H1 movement, a result of nearly three years of meticulous research and development based on the ETA 7750 module. The execution of the sophisticated mono-pusher chronograph is flawless, with meticulously beveled edges and impeccable finishing, masterfully showcased through the display back.

    - This particular watch is numbered as the 1st piece out of a limited edition of 33, further enhancing its exclusivity. It comes with an interchangeable bead-of-rice bracelet, which aesthetically resembles the bracelets from the 1940s. For collectors seeking a beautifully crafted homage to that era, this timepiece is an ideal choice, showcasing exquisite craftsmanship.
