3D Carbon, Smoky Black
A leader in the shaping and industrialization of high-tech materials, Hublot breaks the glass ceiling with a case in 3D carbon—a composite of polymer matrix (PMC) woven with three-dimensional fibers. Ultra light and highly resistant, the case houses a movement with exceptional properties. The unique architecture and ultra complex movement mark an unparalleled aesthetic and performance.
The hour and minute display is driven by a vertical gear train. The force of the barrels is tilted on a perpendicular plane by a transmission system rarely used in watch-making: the 90° degree gear wheel with helical teeth, like an “endless screw.”In another new feature for this innovative caliber, the balance wheel is transposed to the dial side to create symmetry with the helical gear. Vibrating at 4 Hz, the watch features a newly patented index assembly system.
New Generation Carbon
The three-dimensional carbon structure creates unique facets and reflections. The 45mm transparent dial with smoked glass sides reveals an engine-inspired architecture, allows the black PVD-treated mechanism to be admired with its polymer matrix composite case.In addition, this nouveau movement with exceptional autonomy can be wound by hand using the large fluted crown or with the help of an electric Torx stylus inspired by racing cars.
Key points: Made in 3D carbon, this new watch dubbed “All Black” provides an exceptional view of its seven barrels coupled in series, and the display roll for the power reserve. This multi-cylindrical construction, positioned on a horizontal axis, guarantees a movement with two weeks of autonomy. Anexploit!
Plus: The new Big-Bang MP-11 is also available in a sapphire model with absolute transparency.
