Today’s watches are not made in the same way that they used to be. If you are lucky enough to find a watch made from a high quality and well-respected watchmaker, there is virtually nothing that you cannot find when it comes to the products that are available today. The truth is, many watchmakers are going to extreme lengths in order to create something that is completely new. No longer satisfied with traditional watches as they have been constructed for decades, they are looking to create something that is both functional and completely unique, all rolled into one product. You could easily say that these watches are works of art, because that is exactly what they are.
One such company is Hautlence, a company that has now been in business for about 14 years. They have always been well known for creating designs that really stand out from the crowd. In addition, they’ve gained a reputation for creating products that are superior to virtually anything else out there. More recently, they’ve made some additions to one of their most well-received lines, known as the Vortex Gamma line.
The first watch in the series is called the Vortex Gamma Magma. This is a unique looking watch with a bright orange wristband that is constructed not from regular leather or other materials that you would typically expect to find on a watch, but instead from materials utilized in the aerospace industry. Much of the decision to use this material was precipitated by the desire to create the bright orange color that the wristband incorporates. This material is capable of becoming any color, so they didn’t have to worry about how they would achieve the look they wanted. It’s also extremely lightweight and durable. The watch also features a case made entirely out of sapphire crystals and direct, well-defined lines. The company says the watch was inspired by the movie Tron, which was released in 1982. At first glance, the watch looks like it should be sitting in a museum as a piece of modern art as opposed to being strapped on someone’s wrist. It’s really quite interesting that when it comes to this particular product, it really allows you to wear art as a timekeeping piece. This is the direction that most watchmakers are moving, especially the higher quality companies. With that being said, this is definitely one of the most innovative designs that is currently available for purchase.
The Vortex Gamma Magma is a product the company is so proud of that they ultimately decided to create another offshoot product based on the original design. This watch, called the Vortex Gamma Tron, takes that inspiration from the movie one step further. If you look at the watch in the light, it looks almost exactly like its predecessor, with one small exception. It doesn’t have the bright orange wristband. Instead, the wristband on this watch looks more like a pearlized white color as long as you’re looking at it during the daylight or even in artificial light. However, the watch incorporates material that is photo phosphorescent. Therefore, whenever the lights are turned off, a perfect outline of the watch is formed in a bright blue hue. It’s one of the most unique creations that anyone has ever thought of and it’s definitely enough to get the attention of people that enjoy fine watches and understand what it’s like to have a high quality product that they can count on, probably for several decades into the future.
It’s really interesting to see where some of the more innovative watch companies are deciding to take things when it comes to creating new products. For many years, watches were almost all the same. Even among the products of higher quality, there wasn’t a lot of variation from one product to the next. That certainly isn’t the case today. Watchmakers are in many cases hiring artists to create these designs, for the express purpose of creating something that is completely different from anything that has been done before. There is no doubt that Hautlence has managed to achieve exactly what the company has set out to do. There is no doubt that these products will continue to be popular with people who want a high quality watch that isn’t like everything else people are wearing.
