* Felix was released in 2014 and was the company's first move into producing a fully fledged in-house manufacturerd movement - A11B. This beautifully simple manual wind movement belies just how much groundwork and dedication it took to get to the point of producing their own calibre movement. The A11B is the result of 10 years work and now confirms Habring² as potentially the smallest independent watch movement maufacturer in the world. With a company comprising of just seven employees, this is a truly remarkable feat.

 

* Felix is a stunning example of simplicity in watch design. A clean, enamel-like white dial, Breguet numerals and blued hands with small second indicator at the 9 o'clock position, displaying just how simple watch design can be, but at the same time creating a beautiful, understated and un-pretentious approach to watch design. The 38.5mm case with a height of just 7mm makes the watch perfect for any wrist size and the A11B in-house, manual wind movement is displayed with the use of a sapphire crystal case back. This particular model in stock features blue numerals as opposed to the black numerals shown in the stock image. Please contact us for more photos if required.

 

* Please note, due to their popularity and the fact that Habring only produce around 200 watches per year, keeping regular stock in-store is difficult. Although all watches showing 'Out Of Stock' are on order, it is strongly recommended that you contact us prior to any delivery from Habring to ensure the watch you like is put in your name.

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.
