In true Hautlence fashion, the blue and orange detailing of predecessors HLRQ02 and HLRQ03 is now picked up on the icy blue or glowing orange varnished horns of the HLRQ04 and HLRQ05 models. These bright and breezy accents vividly match the blue or orange superluminova of the hours, minutes and dots on the upper sapphire dial.
In 2012, the brand consolidated its creative range by launching the Avant-garde collection, a line of watches inspired by the sleek curves and aesthetic codes of avant-garde design. The first HLRS models introduced in October 2012 were followed in 2013 by the HLRQ versions, incorporating various signature design codes attuned to a more lifestyle-oriented look.
Embodying the sporty, flamboyant nature of their siblings, HLRQ04 and HLRQ05 display a different dimension thanks to a vibrant injection of colour.Despite this, the imposing signature elements of the HLRQ line remain alive and well. The 44 mm circular black DLC-finish grade 2 titanium case band frames the in-house designed sapphire dial lending a sense of depth and transparency, while affording a clear view of the manual-winding mechanical movement powering the jumping hours, retrograde minutes as well as the date display.
