In 1848 the brothers Leopold (1827-1915) and Benjamin (1828-1925) Haas, both knights of the Légion d'honneur, founded the ANCIENNE MANUFACTURE DES MONTRES HAAS & CIE in Geneva. The company excelled in unique and exceptional pieces and achieved its reputation with exquisite watches that pass for modern even today. Rare treasures such as the split second chronograph and beautifully wrought pocket and wristwatches were created in accordance with the manufacturer's fundamental motto of simplicity, technique and elegance. Benjamin Haas invented a form of winding where the mainspring was wound by opening the front cover of a hunting case watch. Patents, 1873, p. 48 illustrated and outlined British patent No. 3945, issued Dec. 2, 1873 to B. Haas. This patent was licensed to other makers. 1884 Haas changed their name to Haas Neveux & Cie, to communicate that new family members had taken positions in the company. At the same time the original logo of B.H. & Co. (for Benjamin Haas & Co) was changed to a small running hare and the letters HNC in an oval shape - representing the dynamic attitude of the company. In 1896 Haas Neveux & Cie establishes a record with an ultraflat 2mm movement for a ladies' watch and wins a first price for precision in the 1902 competition of the famous "Observatoire de Genève".

Tourbillon "Pour le Mérite" The watch takes its name from the German order "Pour le Mérite" and boasts a design which has never before been used for a wristwatch: the train is driven via chain and fusée. The highly complicated mechanism optimizes the accuracy of the watch and can be watched through an aperture in the three quarter plate. An intricately assembled planetary gear system guarantees stability during winding. The model was produced as a limited edition from 1994 until 1998 (50 pieces being produced in platinum).

Ref. 6239 Reference 6239 was produced from 1961 to 1976. In the late 1960s, it was produced with the new exotic dials - as what was to be called the "Paul Newman" model; the watch was available in 18K yellow gold, 14K yellow gold and as a stainless steel version. Some collectors do not really accept the Ref. 6239 as a true Oyster model because of its round non-screwed down push buttons. The famous "Daytona" inscription was first introduced around 1964. The very early pieces had a bezel which was graduated to 300 units per hour but this was later reduced to 200 units per hour. Ref. 6239 was replaced by Ref. 6263. Paul Newman supposedly wore a Ref. 6239 "Daytona" after his wife Joanne Woodward gave it to him in 1972 when he began racing automobiles.

He enrolled in Yale Drama School after college and, after moving to New York and working in television, had his first Broadway role as Alan Seymour in William Inge's "Picnic ". It was here that he first met Joanne Woodward, who was to become his wife in 1958. Woodward and Newman have so far starred in ten films together. Both were recipients of the Kennedy Center Honors in 1992 - the honors are presented annually to significant contributors to the American culture through the performing Arts. An enthusiastic race-car driver, Newman is also a four-time winner of the Sports Club of America National Championship. Newman gained himself an entry in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest driver to win such a race when he won the 24 hours of Daytona in the GT-1 Class along with his teammates in 1995.
