A combination of the latest advances in technology, materials and design, the new Hublot watch boasts a 48mm tonneau-shaped case. It is rendered in titanium or black carbon fiber. A fixed bezel, round in shape, comes with the choice of the same materials.
The bezel features a unidirectionally rotating flange, equipped with a diving scale. The flange is operated with a massive titanium crown, located at 2 o’clock. The bezel securely holds a 6.50 mm thick sapphire crystal. The back part of the model is screwed-down.
Integrated at 10 o’clock is a helium escape valve, which allows any gas that penetrates during diving to escape when returning to the surface. The water-resistance of the new Hublot King Power Oceanographic 4000 automatic diving watch is assured down to 4000 meters.
The timepiece is constructed around a Swiss made self-winding HUB1401 movement. Its winding and setting are assured by the crown at 4 o’clock. Composed of 180 individual parts, the movement incorporates 23 jewels, satin-finished, bevelled and polished bridges as well as black PVD-treated screws. The mechanism utilizes a Glucydur hairspring and supplies a 42-hour power reserve.
The caliber animates hours, minutes, seconds and a date, arranged at 3 o’clock. The functions are presented on a black dial. It is equipped with facetted, applied, luminous hour-markers and facetted sand-blasted hands, also treated with luminous compound.
The new Hublot watch is mounted on a civilian “Town” strap, made of black rubber. It can be also teamed with a more hard-core “Diver” strap, which represents a blend of rubber and nylon.
The titanium version will be offered in limited series of 1000 pieces. The issue of the black carbon fiber interpretation will be strictly limited to 500 units.
