Hublot to Present King Power Alinghi Watch

Jan 29, 2010
The prominent company Hublot has recently unveiled its new brainchild, the King Power Alinghi watch, which strengthens the brands partnership with the Alinghi sailing team. The Swiss Alinghi team represents the Defender of the 33rd America's Cup.

The Hublot King Power Alinghi watch is available with a microblastered black ceramic case, which measures 48mm in diameter. The watch bezel, sculptured from the same material and covered with moulded black rubber, is secured by 6 relief black PVD-treated H-shaped titanium screws. The bezel lugs and lateral inserts are manufactured from black composite resin.

The watch case is also fitted with a crown and push-pieces, sculptured in black PVD-treated titanium with black rubber inserts. On its front side the case is armed with a sapphire crystal with a double-sided anti-reflective coating, which reveals a mechanical beauty, beating at the heart of the new Hublot watch.

The King Power Alinghi watch relies on a self-winding mechanical skeleton chronograph movement the HUB4400, composed of 252 individual parts and incorporating 27 jewels.

The movement demonstrates microblasted black chrome bridges, as well as a main plate, crafted from the same material. The movement is also equipped with an oscillating weight, produced from tungsten carbide with black PVD-coated dimpled surface; a reinforced barrel spring and a Glucydur hairspring. The movement boasts a 42-hour power reserve.

The novel Hublot watch exposes a multilayered dial, completed with matte black sub-dials, as well as indices, performed in black nickel and tipped with a coat of Superluminova. It bears the Alinghi logo at 9 o'clock. The time is indicated by hands rendered in satin-finished microblasted black nickel and treated with a Superluminova compound.

The water-resistance of this timekeeper is down to 100 meters.

The Hublot King Power Alinghi watch is accompanied by an articulated black rubber strap with a microblasted black ceramic and black PVD treatment. The timepiece will be available in a limited edition of 333 numbered pieces worldwide.
