Hautlence launches its first chronograph as a limited edition with design input from Eric Cantona.
Hautlence and Eric Cantona - this outstanding duo have developed and designed the first Hautlence chronograph, a model named Invictus, Morphos Limited Edition by Eric Cantona.
Intrigued by every form of artistic expression, Eric Cantona, a multi-faceted aesthete, and Hautlence, share a special sensitivity to design. This talent has given rise to a new self-winding chronograph model, designed and developed in tandem by Guillaume Tetu, CEO and co-founder of the brand and Eric Cantona and proudly named Invictus, from the Latin phrase meaning “unbeaten and unbeatable” and the butterfly of the same name.
The Invictus, Morphos Limited Edition by Eric Cantona is issued as a 250-piece limited edition, and nestled in a titanium case, the dial bears the colour and iridescent reflections of the large, blue butterfly for which it is named, while mother-of-pearl insets subtly illuminated with black decals emulate the markings on its wings. The case-back is numbered and engraved with the name “Invictus”, along with Eric Cantona’s signature and an engraving of his digital fingerprint.
With its mechanical prowess and avant-garde design, to which Eric Cantona has made a significant contribution, Invictus, Morphos Limited Edition by Eric Cantona perfectly embodies the characteristics that initially attracted Eric Cantona and Guillaume Tetu to each other. But it is above all the butterfly theme that most eloquently hints at the personality of an individual who was one of the greatest footballers of all time. For Eric Cantona, the butterfly is the very embodiment of the word ephemeral, symbolising freedom, a carefree existence and a zest for life resulting from the fact that given the shortness of one’s time on earth, one needs to live every second to the full.
In less than ten years, Hautlence has demonstrated extraordinary technical capabilities for an emerging brand. The manufacture has always been keen to stand out from the crowd; very early on, it successfully established a distinctive aesthetic appearance.Find out more
