HAUTLENCE INVICTUS NEON GREEN EDITION

A technically sophisticated gentlemen’s chronograph, the Hautlence Invictus Neon Green watch is defined by its vibrant green styling accents and unique dial arrangement.  Forming part of the Hautlence Signature collection, this model features meticulous finishing and robust construction ensuring it will meet the daily-wear requirements of even the most discerning watch collector.


Capturing the creativity of this acclaimed independent watchmaking company, the Invictus Neon Green model has a resolutely contemporary aesthetic.  However, although the model is ultimately a functional timepiece, it also displays its Haute Horlogerie personality through a glimpse of the exposed mechanical components of its calibre.


The piece carries a rectangular case made from Grade 2 Black Titanium with beadblasted finishing on the case middle and horns. The steel bezel has been blackened with a coating of varnish while the case-side pushers and the bumpers are made from polished black DLC-coated steel, giving the piece a stealthy personality.


Enclosing this dramatic frame, the extra-hard sapphire is finished with faceted edges, which creates a superb prism-like aspect.  Beneath this anti-reflective vitreous enclosure, a technically accomplished dial arrangement is revealed.


Comprising of multiple layers, the architecture of the dial is brimming with contrasting elements and has an extraordinary depth which immediately demands further inspection.   The intermediate dial, constructed from sapphire, features white Super-LumiNova® numerals and hour indices, suspended above a mesh of stunning vivid green honeycomb, which surrounds the white minutes track and central displays.


The base of the dial is opaline black with a cutaway section which reveals the date ring and the stripped back, hand decorated and sandblasted bridges.


Featuring small seconds at the 12 o’clock position, the chronograph registers are highlighted with rhodium-plated circular satin-finished flanges, with the 12-hours and 30-minutes subdials at the 6 and 9 respectively. By day, the rhodium-plated, bevelled hour and minutes hands catch and play with the light, while after dark their pristine white Super-LumiNova® coating ensures maximum readability.


Inside beats a Dubois Dépraz chronograph module, integrated with the base Soprod A10 automatic self-winding movement, hand finished and skeletonised at Hautlence.  To the rear a beadblasted titanium caseback is inscribed and fastened with four Hautlence bolts.


This beautifully crafted and immaculately finished Hautlence Invictus Neon Green chronograph wristwatch comes presented with strap options of black hand-sewn rolled-edge Louisiana alligator leather or black rubber. Each secures to the wrist with a folding clasp in Grade 2 Titanium with satin-brushed steel plate.
