* Felix was Richard and Maria Habring's first move in manufacture watchmaking and introduced the world to their in-house A11B manual wind movement. This movement works as the base to which all other complcations within the collection are built around and stands as a wonderful testament to small, artisan, independent watchmaking. The watch itself is beautifully understated, with silver dial, black "pencil" hands, black Roman numeral 'XII' and constructed around a slim and classical 38.5mm steel case with polished bezel and tapered lugs. The A11B movement is visible from the sapphire glass back and the watch comes fitted to an attractive black ostrich strap with pin buckle.

 

* This watch comes in superb condition (9/10) and perfect working order. Box and papers are included.

Habring² can quite possibly lay claim to being the smallest watch manufacturer in the world, certainly the only watch manufacturer in Austria!

 

Maria and Richard Habring, who are the driving force behind Habring² founded the company in 1997 Volkermarkt, Austria in a fourth and fifth floor studio surrounded by lakes and mountains and proceeded to develop and produce a range of fine mechanical watches for which Austria was once so famous back in the 19th century.

 

Habring² produce a range of technically inventive mechanical watches such as tourbillons, the previously world exclusive and now much copied jumping second and a range of chronographs, which all share a classic, timeless design and are characterised by reliability and suitability for everyday wear.

 

Richard Habring, who’s career started as a watchmaker under his mentor Günter Blümlein at IWC played a major role in the development of the double chronograph and is now, with his wife Maria reconnecting with the great Austrian history of watchmaking by producing their own range of excellent mechanical wristwatches.
