  • Catalogue Essay

    A true independent Swiss manufacture considered to be one of the most low-key artisans of recent times, Haldimann hones the horological arts since 1642. Rooted in the Swiss town of Thun, Haldimann is one of the last remaining ateliers in the world capable of producing and restoring almost everything by hand without any CNC technology. Best known for their dramatic and philosophical approach on the brand’s premier of the Haldimann H1 Flying Lyra with central tourbillon to float above the dial at Baselworld in 2002.

    Ode to simplicity with the very pure essence of time keeping, the present H11 Central Balance was launched at Baselworld 2013. Stepping on a different aesthetic direction compared to its big brother H1, the model is dressed in a supremely minimal 39mm platinum case fitted with a startling frosted grey canvas with delicate Roman numerals and a graceful pair of hollowed spade tipped hands. Turning over the watch is where the complexity beats, unusual yet remarkable, the manually wound movement highlighting the central position of the balance wheel sits directly below the hour and minute hands. Refined with a frosted finish and a straightforward display, Phillips is delighted to offer for the first time the present Haldimann H11 consigned by the original owner and indeed fresh-to-the-market. With an annual production of no more than 20 pieces leaving the factory, the present example in an excellent overall condition with its original certificate and accessories will sure impress the enthusiast who appreciate the art of independence.
