The GPHG Petite Aiguille category is for watches with a retail price between 4,000 and 10,000 Swiss francs. This is a category that stands closer to the general public as it comprises watches that are far more affordable than the other categories except the Challenge category (under 4,000 Swiss francs).
At only 38.5 mm in diameter and 10.5 mm in height, the Habring2 Chrono-Felix Panda is almost as svelte as its time-only sibling Felix, and the absence of a customary second pusher for the chronograph’s reset function makes it look much lighter than a two-pusher chronograph. Elizabeth Doerr fell in love with this test watch and was sad to send it back after the review; find out why here.
Habring2 introduces Foudroyante-Felix in a very wearable 38.5 mm case. This intense timepiece entertains the eye with foudroyante seconds while keeping accurate time with deadbeat seconds. All at the same time! And now in a very svelte case in two dial color variations.
The perpetual calendar is often the perfect way for watch manufactures to show off craftsmanship and ability, but how brands do this varies. Here Elizabeth Doerr highlights five very different perpetual calendars introduced in 2019, just in time for the leap year turn on February 29, 2020.
For Martin Green, one of the true pleasures of being a watch journalist is the ability to try out watches before they even hit the market. This joy increases when the watch in question is of a rare breed like the Habring2 Perpetual-Doppel, a seldom-seen combination of perpetual calendar and split-seconds chronograph. Habring2 unites these two complications in one watch to celebrate the independent watch brand’s 15th anniversary.
