Idalgo XT-2 is a luxury watch by HD3 Complication.
The series Idalgo was designed by Jörg Hysek personally, who, like his two partners Ursenbacher and Gonet, also maintains his own watch range under the umbrella of the HD3 team. The 2006 presented Idalgo XT-2 is the first version and also the first contribution by Hysek to the cooperation; later the Idalgo XT-1 followed as a lightweight variant.
First this racy timepiece amazes by its tandem shape It is not, as one might first think, two watches or two watch movements, but one single watch that is driven by an automatic movement with dual rotor. The time display includes jumping hour, retrograde minute, second, date and dual timezone. While the housing shape is modern, the unusual dial conjures up classic moments and acts like a traditional, noble-made instrument. The sheer design of this watch required more than 800 hours of work.
From any version of this luxury watch, there are a maximum of 33 pieces.
