THE POWER OF COLOR
With this ultra-limited series, the convergence of material and innovation enters into a new dimension. This singular timepiece places watchmaking in an unprecedented artistic context.
For over ten years now, the Nyon manufacturer has been committed to contemporary art. During the Hublot Loves Art event in Miami 2022, the surprise did not arise from an exhibition, but from the revelation of an impressive watch creation, the MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis 5 Days Power Reserve Rainbow 3D Carbon. The watch’s distinctive characteristic lies, among other things, in the design of its case, 49mm in diameter and 17.95mm thick. For the first time, the carbon is adorned with an exclusive coating reproducing the setting obtained with precious stones. This amazing feat was made possible by Hublot’s mastery of composite material. To perfectly coordinate with this astonishing scenography, this timepiece, produced in a limited edition of eight, comes with a multicolored alligator leather wristband closed by a titanium folding clasp.
Regarding the time information and the caliber, all the characteristics of the models in King Gold and Titanium presented in 2017 are included. A large off-center dial displays the hours and minutes. In this instance, the hour markers display the seven hues of the rainbow. The whole assembly is surrounded by two semicircles in which the date can be read. At 6 o’clock, the regulating mechanism rotates on two axes for one minute on the first and 30 seconds on the second. The complex hand-wound movement made up of 356 components also captivates through its performance. It guarantees the timepiece 120 hours of autonomy. Watchmaking is an art!
