This beautiful H1 timepiece is the first model of my new, strictly limited small series of exceptional HENTSCHEL watches. The H1 Master Editions are outstanding creations that I have always wanted to bring to life.
The incredibly deep blue hue of the sword hands is the first eye catching feature of this timepiece. These are handcrafted in our workshop, meticulously polished to flawlessness, and then perfectly blued over a flame.
These unique hands create an exciting contrast on the delicate, anthracite-coloured, and slightly satin-finished dial of the H1 Meister-Edition. This elegant array of colours is achieved by a galvanic coating of black rhodium and creates the perfect background for the luminous, raised hour numerals in Breguet style. The “minute dots,” on the other hand, are not raised, but instead recessed into the dial and finished with a mirror polish. Together with the countersunk small seconds display, the dial is arranged on three levels. The combination of these elaborate design techniques in the manufacturing process of the dial guarantees the highest degree of three-dimensionality.
With the alluring hue and lustre that is characteristic of white gold, the classic 18Kt. gold case harmoniously blends in with the overall design composition. The elegant appearance is further enhanced by the slightly domed sapphire crystal, which stretches almost invisibly over the dial thanks to its double anti-reflective coating.
This refined, classically styled entrance is completed by an extravagant dark blue strap made of stingray leather. Equally striking and perfectly colour-coordinated with the H1 Meister-Edition is the highly sophisticated manufacture calibre HUW 1130 S.
Thanks to a black-rhodium coating, the entire movement has been given an intriguing anthracite colourway. Therefore, when exposed to specific light, all the decorative ribbing and surface polishes literally shine, with the red rubies glowing particularly intensively.
The H1 Master Edition is a miniature masterpiece composed of superb watchmaking skills, exceptional materials, extraordinary forms and shapes, and intense colours. It is individually numbered and strictly limited to nine pieces in white gold and three pieces in red gold.
Their versatile diameter of 37 mm is ideal for ladies who prefer slightly larger watches as well as gentlemen with slimmer wrists.
