Outstanding Elegance and Precision
Hentschel’s H1 Fine Watch Collection epitomises watchmaking mastery and elegance. Once again, Hentschel offsets sleek, understated designs against beautifully manufactured and ennobled movements to create a unique link between high-end chronometry and the nautical history of Hamburg.
A special feature of timepieces from the H1 collection is the slim, aesthetic bezel and case construction. In order to achieve adequate water resistance on such a fine case, Hentschel custom designed a three-part casing with four separate seals. This system also allows the incorporation of precious metals into the case design. Sturdy polished bronze models feature perfectly-matched 18ct rose gold bezels and case backs. Polished stainless steel models incorporate polished 14ct white gold mid sections for added robustness and durability.
The philosophy behind the H1 collection is that it should ‘fit like a tailor-made suit’, thus models in the H1 collection are available in four different case sizes: 29.5mm, 34.5mm, 37mm, and 39.5mm. This adaptability of the H1 collection supports bespoke watchmaking backed by skilled craftsmanship and expertise. All you have to do is enjoy the process and results.
