Released in a limited series of 250 pieces, the new Hublot watch employs a 48mm zirconium case. The model sports a circular-grained satin finished bezel, made of zirconium and black ceramic. It boasts a multitude of holes, which bring to mind a high-performance brake disc. The bezel is bolted down to the case with 6 H-shaped screws.
The new Hublot F1 King Power Suzuka watch shows off a balanced dial. Completed with applied hour-markers and contrasting minute graduation, it tells central hours and minutes, indicated by large skeletonized hands. The small seconds tick away in a counter at 9 o’clock.
The chronograph features are assured through a 30-minute sub-dial at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock as well as a central seconds hand, fitted with an H-shaped counterweight. All the sub-dials are fitted with skeletonized hands. The date indication is arranged in an aperture between 4 and 5 o’clock. The functions are driven by an automatic mechanical movement.
The new Hublot watch goes on a strap, created from rubber and Nomex. The latter is a synthetic fibre, developed by Dupont De Nemours and employed in manufacturing of race suits for F1 drivers.
