Habring² Erwin Pilot


Habring2 Erwin Pilot

Erwin delivers the lines and performance of the much-loved Felix model with the addition of a jumping second function.

Available in several colourways, Habring2’s Erwin collection comprises highly functional timepieces with the charm of classical, minimalist design.

The Erwin Pilot delivers the classic lines and design of Habring2’s Jumping Second with a distinct aviation feel. The hour and minute hands and dot hour markers are coated in luminous material to differentiate them from the bold numerals for enhanced legibility in all light conditions. Although designed as a pilot watch, the Erwin Jumping Second Pilot works well as a ‘daily wear’ and fits comfortably under shirt sleeves.

The Movement
Erwin’s specially developed movement is based on Habring2’s in-house A11 calibre. A11 has proven itself robust and reliable since its launch in 2014 as the movement within the original Felix timepieces. Thanks to its intelligent design, the A11 calibre is flexible enough for installation in Felix and Erwin’s slim 38.5 mm case. Even with the addition of a jumping second function in the Erwin series, the A11S movement is still a slim 5.7 mm which fits comfortably with the 9mm high case.

The Case
Erwin‘s case is proudly 100% Made in Austria. The raw material is tempered in the smelter of world famous steel specialist Böhler of Kapfenberg and then processed by local metalworking experts.

The Dial
The black structured dial creates an excellent contrast to the printed white numerals applied in a bold, easy-to-read typeface. The outer dial is finished with minute markers and additional luminous dots sit on each hour position. A smart inclusion, aimed at elevating legibility and clarity is the use of cathedral-style hour and minute hands, filled with a generous coating of luminous material (subtle nude-colour by day, strong green night glow).

The Band
An extensive range of bands are available for the Felix and Erwin collection (18mm lug fitting) and a slim 18mm stainless steel deployment clasp is also available as an alternative to the standard pin buckle fastening.

A11 calibre family

Between 2007 and 2014 Habring² movements were based on the Valjoux 7750/7760 clockwork. Due to the well-known withdrawal by ETA – and also to ensure future production – it was only logical for Maria & Richard Habring to create a worthy replacement themselves.

In addition to the entire clockwork, winding mechanism and hand movement mechanism, their task also included designing and manufacturing the escapement and balance wheel with balance spring. Whilst competitors – armed with industrial processes and high, generously subsidised investments in machine pools – attempt to come close to the former ETA prices, the Habrings have decided to take another route: “We will utilise our flexible, small company structure in future to focus even more on the high manually added value of our watches.”

The team at Habring² has perfected the manual assembly of anchors, counting balance springs and the manual production of clockwork cogwheels in accordance with traditional techniques. Counting and bending enough finished balance springs to last a month takes about a day’s work.
