Felix is the new starter model by Habring² and fortunate because it celebrates the first anniversary of the Habring² brand. Although it shares the same base with its siblings, it differs through the omission of the Habring² module system. Whilst all other Habring² watches were and still are configurable and extendible at any time – including after their purchase – Felix does not share this characteristic. Its movement, the A11B (B for Basis), represents the simplest mechanical method of measuring time – albeit with the utmost precision. Felix – and its siblings – never need fear the chronometer certification. Felix concentrates on the essential. It forgoes the former and familiar extendible screwed case and is therefore leaner than its siblings. A diameter of 38.5 mm and a remarkable case height of only about 7 mm make it an exceptionally attractive contemporary. Its near ascetic appearance is underscored by a fine-grained or satinated silver-white dial.
