Hublot's Basel 2012 NoveltiesEarlier this week, I was invited to get a media lunch with Hublot's new CEO, Mr. Ricardo Guadalupe, and Asia-Pacific Regional Director, Ms. Miwa Sakai, who been visiting Kl by using an Asian tour.All images could be clicked on for bigger versions.In addition to enjoying a fantastic steak, Furthermore, i had the chance to play with and photograph the modern pieces introduced at Basel earlier in the year.I've personally found many of the brand's pieces rather lukewarm previously - it wasn't the aesthetics that did not get it done in my opinion, but rather deficiency of anything serious under the hood. However, with all the recent Masterpieces, the Unico in-house chronograph caliber, plus the new collection, Hublot is actually begging to become taken heed of - Mr. Guadalupe admits as often, and admits which the focus is on increasing the substance of the trademark.Every one of the pieces photographed here were operated by in-house calibers, that's noteworthy. Equally noteworthy would be the unusual use of materials: gold, ceramics and carbon fibre are nothing unusual right now, but Hublot's use of them, is.The revolutionary 'Magic Gold' material still rates 18k/750 purity, although the remaining 25% on the material isn't one of many traditional metals alloyed with gold so it can have color (nickel, rhodium or copper for yellow, whit eor rose gold respectively) - instead, the gold is fused as well as boron carbide under ruthless and injection molded to the final desired shape. The resultant is usually a material that's the luster of gold, though with hardness close to 1000 Vickers (regular gold are at best 400, much like stainless steel). It isn't gold-colored though, but alternatively paying homage to matte brass.Next is graphite - normally, carbon fiber can be used in sheet form from the dial, rolex daytona chronograph or compressed blocks of fiber and resin substrate that happen to be then cut towards the desired shape for your case. Only in the former could you start to see the weave.Hublot actually uses laid and woven carbon - just like F1 cars - so that you begin to see the weave matching the surface contours of the case. I do believe this can be the very first time this has been done, anyway, it's certainly the 1st time I've come across it inside a watch.The Ferrari Chronograph has both the magic gold case, and new in-house Unico chronograph caliber - containing its column wheel and chronograph utilizes a dial side, like the GP movements. All of Hublot's new replica watches also have a rather neat strap changing system - pushing the tiny button in addition to the lugs detaches straps, which might be located in by the metal piece included in top of the portion. Really the only issue with this mechanism is that you can't make use of own straps, and you are obviously doomed if you want something unique.Bulimia could be the Oceanographic 4000, in 2 variants Body with all the carbon case, one that has a regular titanium case and chronograph. Both waterproof to 4000m, with an internal unidirectional dive bezel operated by the protected crown at 2, and a helium release valve at 8. It becomes an enormous 48mm, and wears likewise large as you'd expect. It's thick, too - a comparable thickness as my Reverso GT is wide , actually watches . The chronograph version has rather neat details on the screw down pusher protectors.ChronographPusher openPusher closedFull carbon case.Note weaveIt's huge. Admittedly breitling windrider , I have got small wrists.That's a regular Reverso GT at the bottom to compare.Finally, we have now greater wearable pieces - no less than for small-wristed folks at all like me - the Classico Ultra Thin, along with the Skeleton Tourbillon, each of which have rather interesting bridge finishing. And even the gears are black - Perhaps the designers should allow a little more tolerance to the movement in order to avoid the coating from causing points to bind…A big thank you to Hublot and also the Hour Glass for the invitation.For the photographically inclined, images were shot on location at the boutique with available light, the Olympus OM-D, and Panasonic-Leica 45/2.8 Macro.
