* The concept for the Jumping Second model began in 2005 when Habring² started to work on the idea of manufacturing a watch where the central seconds hand accurately jumped as opposed to the traditional sweep seconds style. This piece now incoroprates Habring's brand new in-house developed movement, A11

 

* The dead beat (centre) second was invented in the late 1950s; most probably for so called "Doctors watches". The visualisation of the progression of each single second was considered far better when compared to the classic "sweep" central second indications, especially if one has to concentrate on counting at the same time – like the pulse of a heart beat for instance.

 

* Please note, due to the fact that Habring only produce around 170 watches per year, keeping constant stock in-store is understandably difficult. Although all watches showing 'Out Of Stock' are on order, it is strongly recommended that you contact us prior to any delivery from Habring to ensure the watch you like is put in your name.

Habring² can quite possibly lay claim to being the smallest watch manufacturer in the world, certainly the only watch manufacturer in Austria!

 

Maria and Richard Habring, who are the driving force behind Habring² founded the company in 1997 Volkermarkt, Austria in a fourth and fifth floor studio surrounded by lakes and mountains and proceeded to develop and produce a range of fine mechanical watches for which Austria was once so famous back in the 19th century.

 

Habring² produce a range of technically inventive mechanical watches such as tourbillons, the previously world exclusive and now much copied jumping second and a range of chronographs, which all share a classic, timeless design and are characterised by reliability and suitability for everyday wear.

 

Richard Habring, who’s career started as a watchmaker under his mentor Günter Blümlein at IWC played a major role in the development of the double chronograph and is now, with his wife Maria reconnecting with the great Austrian history of watchmaking by producing their own range of excellent mechanical wristwatches.
