* With the recently launched Top-Second Chrono-Felix, the Habring² manufacture is continuing its tradition in helping to revive complications that were sometimes thought to have been forgotten. The Top Second complication has been practically unheard of for decades! In fact, the Top Second was originally introduced in the 1960s by Swiss manufacturer Mondia. However, this company was later acquired by Zenith, with the result that both the name of the manufacturer and the Top Second complication gradually disappeared from the market. 


* With this revival of a once thought disappeared complication, the new Chrono-Felix Top-Second model flashes a signal every 2.5 seconds in a small window at 9 o'clock. It almost gives the impression of a flashing light, but the interior of the Chrono-Felix Top-Second is operated exclusively mechanically. Inside the manufacture calibre A11FC you'll find a small, spinning propeller with two blades, every 5 seconds, the entire propeller rotates; however, because of the two blades, the signal flashes every 2.5 seconds. Along with this rather wonderful complication the Chrono-Felix Top Second also utilises a single pusher chronograph function and is all displayed within a gorgeous textured black dial, Arabic numerals and cathedral shaped hands, giving the watch a somewhat contemporary take on the classic 1940s era pilot watch.

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.
