HALDIMANN - H9 Reduction

HALDIMANN - H9 Reduction

Art with a capital A.

The H8 from Beat Haldimann displayed none of the conventional watchmaking functions at all and celebrated the beauty of the complication in a manner entirely in harmony with historical techniques. It also raised the issue of the necessity of showing the time. The H9 goes much further by actually answering this question.

HALDIMANN - H9 ReductionWhile the hours and minutes are displayed and combined with a superb complication – a proprietary central triple-barrel flying tourbillon – they are nonetheless not visible. Concealed by an opaque glass, time can thus be imagined, dreamed, invented. Independent watchmaker Beat Haldimann thereby raises his H9 to the rank of a truly exceptional creation testifying to the ephemeral nature of time.
