This year, Hublot will be revealing their new Chukker Bang watch at the Polo Gold Cup in Gstaad. Inspired by the world of polo and in conjunction with polo player Facundo Pieres, the Chukker Bang is a 44mm Big Bang watch, equipped with a titanium grill, affixed to its bezel, in order to further protect the sapphire crystal. The grill can be removed though and put back on when needed. Only 500 numbered pieces of the watch will be produced and it also comes in a version with a diamond encrusted grill. Continue reading
Hublot introduces its new MP-02 “Key of Time” timepiece, the second release from the Swiss watchmaker’s Masterpiece Collection. A bit more conceptual in its design philosophy, the MP-02 “Key of Time” offers time-measuring modulations in three different settings: Position 1 – If you want to savor every second of the passing of time you can slow down the speed of the watch hands, dividing time by 4, whereby 1 conventional hour is represented as quarter of an hour on the MP-02 Key of Time display, Position 2 – If you want “real” time select normal hand speed, to retain “standard” time, whereby one conventional hour equates to one hour on the MP-02 Key of Time, and Position 3 – If you want time to pass quicker you can accelerate the hand speed, multiplying time by four, whereby a conventional quarter of an hour is represented as one hour on the MP-02 Key of Time display. Only 50 units will be produced, each numbered from 01/50 to 50/50.
When it comes to the sportier watch category, the Hublot Big Bang still remains a favorite to many. Prior to the upcoming Basel World show, we can preview today the new Hublot Big Bang Black Caviar.
“Made entirely from ceramic (the ideal material for a watch: 30% lighter than steel, 100% scratchproof, 100% anti-allergenic, 100% unalterable and rust-proof), including the crown and dial (which is a first for Hublot), the Big Bang Black Caviar sports a unique design directly inspired by the famous One Million $ Black Caviar. Bedecked in uniform shades of black under the concept of “invisible visibility”, and with its reliefs designed, cut, bevelled and polished like the baguette black diamonds of its big sister, it comes in a diameter of 41 mm and is equipped with the automatic mechanical movement HUB1112. This watch features a date window at 3 o’clock and is mounted on a brilliant black “glossy” alligator strap stitched on black rubber, as always with Hublot, to provide exceptional comfort, flexibility and robustness. 42-hour power reserve, and water resistant to 10 bar (100 meters). “
The look of the watch is simply stunning. Expect a release in the coming months. Continue reading
