* Following on from Habring2's first Foudroyante model released back in 2010 comes the Foudroyante Felix 38.5mm with the company's fully fledged in-house A11F manually wound movement. The slimmer and sleeker case measures 38.5mm in diameter and features an attractive black dial with silver sub-dial and rhodium plated dagger shaped hands. 

 

* The obvious stand out feature for the Foudroyante Felix is the rotation of the mesmerising sub-dial hand, which flashes at 1/8 second intervals, combined with the dead beat centre second hand, creating that unusual 'tick' movement as opposed to the usual 'sweep' of a standard mechanical watch. This is a watch which must be seen in full flow to truly appreciate!

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.
