Who We Are?

H Innovations Company Limited” (found in 2016) is horological trading company based in Hong Kong specializing in dealing with independent watch brands. Founder Eric originally came from the mechanical and manufacturing engineering industry and have been addicted to watches starting as early as 1980s during high school era. From which after working in the engineering field for years during the 90s, Eric by chance got himself into watches collecting, specially for exploring vintage watches where he gained more experiences via buying and selling as part of his major hobby.

Then back in late 90s / 2000, he decided to turn his passions towards watches from buying & selling to sharing via writing articles for various magazines and newspapers for watches. Follow by further extending this career via founding and creating a watch magazine “SPIRAL” in 2003 to continue sharing his knowledge and experiences about watches via this platform.

After spending almost 20 years in the media industry, Eric has gained further experiences and knowledge via visiting various European brands’ manufacturing facilities and meeting with watchmakers, where further experiences about watchmaking were gained. During this period, there have been lots of changes towards the media industry, where focuses were shifting from print media / magazines progressively moving more towards digital and social media type which appeared to be a general trend back in the days.

In 2016, he took the chance and decided to leave the media industry where he spent almost 20 years and founded β€œH Innovations Company Limited”, a company focusing on horology trading / relating business. Currently, β€œH Innovations Company Limited” is the sole agent and brand owner of β€˜H.I.D. Watch’ (www.hidwatch.com) and being the official international distributor for β€˜BEHRENS Watches’ working directly with the brand’s headquarter www.behrenswatches.com for distributing and retailing their watches globally.

Who is BEHRENS?

The story of BEHRENS started back in 2012 when the brand was 1st registered by β€œMr. Lin Bingqiang” as an independent watch brand in the market. During the past years of development, the brand has been focusing on designing and developing mechanical modules to achieve new ways for time display. That is to produce wristwatches that do not just tell time but also through our unique designs to add a touch of uniqueness to these watches for watch lovers to enjoy. The brand’s major trait is the capability of developing and producing most of the parts in-house by our engineering and production team, alongside more than 20 in-house CNC machineries and 3D printing technology adoption.

In 2018, we started launching our satellite time display collections (Astronomer & Space Traveler), then continued with modules’ development, and launched 2 new collections, coded β€˜Apolar’ and β€˜Rotary’ back in 2020. With β€˜Apolar’ collection newly developed with a unique and all-new designed mechanism called the β€˜Moon Track’ which allows the orbit of the Moon to be shown and displayed in relation to the globe which acts as a Day/Night indication on the dial. Whereas for Rotary collection which was based on the Rotary automotive engine that was used on the 787B Le Man’s race winner in early 90s. This collection was inspired by the motion of this engine as concept and turned the twin rotaries into time display for hours and minutes. One of the milestones was these 2 concept watches managed to become annual GPHG 2020 nominees.

BEHRENS didn’t just stop there but continued with our further development of unique timepieces. In 2021, we have for the 1st time in the watch market, launched a special limited-edition timepiece, β€˜Mars Project One’ to tribute the human’s exploration journey to Mars. This timepiece features for the 1st time a double twin rollers time display function to display the time on Earth and Mars. This collection has brought us to the next level of watchmaking, allowing us to be more well-known in the watch market for what we can do.

In 2022, we have continued with upgrading our skills and designs by the launching of a few new models which includes the PERIGEE, an all-new collection featuring our 1st in-house manual wind movement, a power source to the unique time display via a rubies chain system and an accurate Moon Track system (2nd generation).

Also in 2022, a new chapter to the brand is the cooperation between BEHRENS and CHINAROCKET, a commercial space rocket design corporation to design and build our 1st space wristwatch which was successfully sent to space on 9th December 2022 (14:35).

In 2023, we have once again had a breakthrough with our design and development. The launch of our new collection, β€œUltraLight Weight” which is a completely newly designed wristwatch featuring their latest in-house movement, Cal.BM02, a manual wind wristwatch with a weight of less than 20 grams.

With current positioning and development, at BEHRENS, more has yet to come. Stay tuned for future developments.
