HD3 Complication

HD3 Slyde Introduced at GTE 2011

HD3 Complications, a high-end boutique brand, that previously made hundred thousand dollar timepieces, has decided to completely change their product focus. After their movement supplier went bankrupt in 2009, a year when the entire luxury watch market was forever changed, Jorg Hysek had to think of a new product. Instead of continuing with ultra high-end timepieces, Jorg Hysek and his team at HD3 decided to enter a totally different watch category. The category they chose, did not actually exist, as nobody makes $5,000 digital touch screen watches.

Capture 2 by HD3 Complication

After attending the Baselworld show this year we headed to Geneva to visit HD3 Complication. Instead of exhibiting at the SIHH or Baselworld shows, HD3 decided to have a private show aboard a boat on Lake Geneva. The watch that really attracted me to HD3 originally, was the Capture. This year they introduced the Capture 2, which was designed by Valerie Ursenbacher, who is one of the three designers at HD3 Complication. This watch comes in three versions; white gold with black PVD accents, rose gold with black PVD accents and titanium with white gold accents. All three versions are limited to 11 pieces and come with a natural rubber or leather strap.
