To surpass the developments of the past you need to create a category of your own.
After hundreds of years of watchmaking finding newness is a task not to be taken lightly. Only through innovation and a keen understanding of the core communities interests can one etch out newness.
The goal was to deliver the newest Swiss performance manufacture micro-rotor in a thin, all-terrain ready GMT.
A JOURNEY TOGREAT DEPTHS
Just 29% of the earths surface is land, leaving 71% as water. If we were going to make an all-terrain watch it just simply had to be able to perform when exploring the underwater world.
A recreational diver rarely exceeds 30 meters in depth, therefore 100 meters is more than sufficient and the baseline water resistance of SUPERSEDE.
Our advanced team of engineers look to go a step further and push the material construction boundaries of SUPERSEDE to 200 meters and in June of 2022 they succeeded.

PREMIUM & PRECIOUS
Engineering is at the heart of every Horage project.
Aesthetics are important, but performance is number one. Through a multitude of simulations our team landed on two micro-rotor material options that enable the K2 micro-rotor to compete with the best.
Gold plated tungsten has been the staple of the K2 micro-rotor development and will be the standard option at checkout. Solid tungsten is considered a premium rotor in watchmaking. Its density exceeds that of solid gold and thus offers sufficient rewinding efficiency. The gold look exudes a classic aesthetic whereas the platinum upgrade has a more modern and technical look to it. Regardless of your choice both perform exceptionally well.
Part of the K2 development journey was looking at using precious metals of either gold or platinum. Platinum exceeded both gold and tungsten in density and thus was the chosen precious metal for those looking to upgrade.
The PT950 hallmark is protected in Switzerland and this ensures you receive a true platinum rotor. You can upgrade to PT950 platinum for 1,200 CHF.
Developing an ultra-low profile micro-adjustment clasp from the ground up is not a task to be taken lightly. The Horage team began engineering the micro-adjustment clasp (HMAC) in early 2021 and a year later the first prototype was complete. It's been rigorously lab tested here in Switzerland up to 5000 actuations and performs flawlessly.
The 904L steel HMAC is just 5.6mm thin, thus complimenting Supersede's sleek profile. It offers up to 10mm of adjustment in 1mm increments. All Supersede watches ship with the all-new HMAC.

Breaking Price Barriers... Again
We broke the Swiss tourbillon price barrier and micro-rotors should be no exception.
The market start point for Swiss micro-rotors with three hands is around 7,500 Swiss francs. As always we look to deliver more.
The retail price for the Supersede GMT with GMT hand, day/night indicator, big date and power reserve indicator with gold-plated tungsten rotor is just 6.500 CHF.

Anti-Magnetic Silicon Escapement
Non-reliant on the Swiss monopolies Horage through advanced material science and engineering aims to be the first independent watchmaker to deliver their very own silicon hairsprings to market when patents expire in November 2022.
SUPERSEDE again earns it's name as it will house an independent micro-rotor with a full anti-magnetic silicon escapement consisting of silicon anchor, escape wheel and hairspring.
