Hentschel’s H2 SPORT is distinguished by its elegance and optimal performance. Although the H2 SPORT has the robust, waterproof Hentschel ‚Tresor’ stainless steel case, it is not nearly as bulky as a traditional sports watches. Another point of difference can be seen in the tidy lines of the dial design which compare favourably to the often busy-looking dials of many sports watches. The H2 SPORT is clearly legible and deliberately renounces any additional or uneccessary information.
Optimised comfort and wearability of the H2 SPORT is a direct result of the harmonious proportions of the case. Made of exceptionally strong (Tresor), satinised, stainless steel and fixed with six-screw, it is surprisingly flat. Measuring only 8 mm high, the H2 SPORT case is only half as thick as other sports watches and fits perfectly under any shirt cuff without disturbing the wearer or adding too much bulk to the wrist.
The engraved top ring gives the H2 SPORT its subtle sporty edge. The bezel is fixed with four blued screws which enhance the light play off the arched dial. In combination with the similarly curved sapphire glass, the H2 SPORT is an exceptionally beautiful piece to wear. Perhaps the most impresive aspect of the H2 SPORT is the inclusion of Hentchel’s new manufactory caliber HUW 1130 S.
Movement: In-house HUW 1130 S
The exclusivity of the piece continues in the interior of the H2 Sport with the manufactory caliber HUW 1130 S.
Completely redesigned on the basis of the long-standing AS 1130 hand-applied hand-winding calibre. The work bridges have been redesigned and are now reminiscent of the aesthetics of the pocket watch caliber of the early 20th century. The swan neck fine adjustment makes it possible to precisely regulate the accuracy of the gait. All clockwork components have been optimised in terms of design, the focus being on a wear reduction and thus on the durability of the gears and the vibration system. The manufactory caliber HUW 1130 S sets new technical standards and combines robustness with precision.
