High watchmaking, tradition and innovation.
High watchmaking, tradition and innovation. Three sibling concepts, closely intertwined, totally interdependent, where innovation is often the poor relation. Honoris I, Haute-Rive’s first creation, finally places all three on an equal footing in a wristwatch in yellow or white gold with a grand feu enamel dial and a mysterious flying tourbillon, with finishes (chamfering and decorations by hand) that exemplify the finest in high watchmaking.
Cultural and Family Heritage
The element of tradition is rooted in the cultural and family heritage of founder Stéphane von Gunten. He perpetuates the work of his ancestor
Irénée Aubry, the 19th-century watchmaker and inventor, among others, of the 8-day pocket watch known as Hebdomas.
Haute-Rive is a tribute to horological engineering, of course, but above all, it’s a tribute to family values, to what it means to be human, to sharing, in the spirit and service of Swiss watchmaking excellence, rooted first and
foremost in wonderment and delight.
