To celebrate its 21st Anniversary, William Massena collaborated with Habring2 to present the Erwin 21 Jumping Seconds, reference TZ21.
The Erwin is an evolution of Felix, the first Habring² watch with their in-house Calibre A11 movement developed, manufactured and assembled in Austria. The Erwin in-house Calibre A12 movement has an additional module for a dead beat (jumping) seconds hand.
The ref. TZ21 is a simple, three hand timepiece with an exclusive sector dial of meticulous detail and hand finishing. The 38.5 mm stainless steel case is hand brushed with a stepped bezel that frames a stunning multi-tone sector dial the recalls the legendary sector dials from the 1930s.
The sector dial is divided into four concentric segments with different surface finishes. The combination of brushed, matte and polished finishes adds a sense of depth and variation as light plays across the dial. At its center, the silvery-gray dial is hand brushed. The silvered hour sector is matte and printed with crisp dial markings and numerals in midnight blue. Finally, a mirror-polished silver ring separates the outer railway.
