Bigger Bang

    Models are available in 18-karat red gold, platinum, tantalum, and black ceramic, and features include a skeleton black and gold matte dials on black rubber strap. Inside Information: Hublot is proud of this piece of watchmaking craftsmanship, comprising the first tourbillon column-wheel chronograph with direct coupling on a flying tourbillon—a brainchild directly emerging from the master watchmakers’ workshop at Hublot. The chronograph mechanism and column wheel are for the first time directly visible via the dial at 12 o’clock. The wearer can admire the fine execution of each component, observe the chronograph being activated by pressing the first push piece, and see the operation of the column-wheel mechanism.
