Founded in 2004 by two co-founders who had already spent three years creating the ideas and sketches of its first innovative timepieces, the first cushion-shaped watch with inventive movement emerged on the scene in 2005. Today, HAUTLENCE is owned by the MELB Holding Group (run by the Meylan family) and continues to release innovative calibers. In fact, since its founding, it has produced eight highly unusual calibers.
