Hautlence presents a new interpretation of its Vortex watch, this time cased in bronze. The appeal of this particular metal, a copper and tin alloy, is that if it is left untreated, it takes on a distinctive patina rather quickly. This process is highly dependent on the immediate environmental factors, be it the ambient temperature, humidity, and the wearer’s activity level – liquids tend to accelerate the process as well. This characteristic has proven popular with certain collectors who want their pieces to be very distinctive; while there will be only eight pieces made of the Vortex Bronze, each will, in effect, age very differently, and be, in a way, a reflection of the wearer and his lifestyle. The movement remains the same: the unique automatic-winding HL2.0 mechanical caliber, where the balance wheel can be seen rotating on two axis at the bottom, with a noticeable 60 degree jump every 60 minutes. The hours are displayed in a window on the left, while the retrograde minutes are in the center, with the Hautlence logo spinning when the hand returns to zero.
