Notes

This concept, created by a group of three talented artists - Jorg Hysek, Valerie Ursenbacher and Fabrice Gonet - working together in total harmony for many years, evolves continuously and constantly attains new standards of excellence. The subtle bond between fine watchmaking and high tech gives a new direction to 21st century watches, marvels of design and resolutely oriented towards the future. The HD3 initials, which might suggest a chemical element, in fact represent the perfect equation between form and function. Each designer endows his creation with unique and powerful emotive power. The harmony apparent throughout their work reveals a shared passion for artistic freedom in the ultimate quest for time, as it will evolve in the future. Having worked together for years as designers at Team Styling, in 2004 Jorg, Valerie and Fabrice decided to initiate HD3 Complication, a brand based on the three designers' passion for truly exceptional watchmaking. They were determined to allow their imagination free reign, each in their own way, as artists in the perpetual pursuit of perfection. Human relationships being of paramount importance for them, they have attracted the finest craftsman. Their artistic vision has les to the creation of exceptional timepieces for their valued customers.
