The Invictus NEON model paired with coloured bezel

The new chronograph from HAUTLENCE has been christened INVICTUS, Latin for "unbeaten and unbeatable". It is a sleek and sporty model with a powerful design.

The Neuchâtel-based company, renowned for its bold, artistic approach, plays with daring colourways for the most recent addition to the collection, which also features the HONEYCOMB pattern and is paired with a coloured bezel. The INVICTUS NEON is available in orange, yellow and green.

The stylish lines of the INVICTUS chronograph are accentuated and enhanced by the strikingly bright fluorescent colours, which fully coat the laser-cut honeycomb patterned inserts that adorn the sides of the dial. The fluorescent colour adds further depth to the timepiece, intensifying the three-dimensional effect created by the two superimposed dials. This play across multiple levels is characteristic of HAUTLENCE, with the brand favouring creations which feature a base dial in opaline, combined with an intermediate sapphire dial on which the transfer hour numerals, coated in white Super-Luminova®, seem to float. A coloured bezel, coordinating with the colour of the honeycomb pattern, adds the finishing touch.

The vibrant colours of the dial and bezel create a striking contrast with the three deep black hour, minute, and seconds counters, in keeping with the case, with its middle and horns made from grade 2 bead-blasted titanium, providing a matte finish. The crown and push-buttons are also black, but these are polished then coated in PVD to add a contrasting touch of brightness. Four steel nuts complete the case's construction, underscoring its rebellious side.

With the INVICTUS NEON model, available in orange, yellow and green, HAUTLENCE pushes the boundaries, creating a watch with a bold aesthetic that is sure to galvanise opinion, and bringing its HONEYCOMB pattern, launched in 2009 and inspired by the automotive industry, into the present.
