Founded in 2004, Hautlence – an anagram of Neuchâtel, home of the company – pays tribute to the birthplace of the watchmaking art. The brand has been praised by watch collectors and aficionados from across the world for dynamizing to the art of fine watchmaking.

Hautlence has its own contemporary watchmaking workshop where watchmakers design and develop all movements themselves.

The young brand presented its first iconic collection, the HL in 2005. A sportive model, the Hautlence HLS, was born in 2007, and then, in 2009, came a new round calibre, the HLQ, with a date function.

Ever since, the company has been producing avant-garde watches, like the HL 2.3, HL 2.4 or the Hautlence Destination (01, 02, 03) with a dual-time zone indication.
