Hublot Only Watch 2013

For the caritative auctions, Hublot is presenting the world premiere of a watch made with bright red ceramic: The Red’n’Black Skeleton Tourbillon!


This is the first time that a bright coloured ceramic has been created. This red ceramic pays tribute to the red of Monaco for the 5th edition of the Only Watch auctions, to be held in Monaco on 28 September 2013.  

This bright red ceramic was the subject of months of research within the R&D Department and the Hublot foundry in Switzerland. This is the first time that the "magic formula" to achieve a brightly coloured ceramic has been found.

On the Red’n’Black Skeleton Tourbillon, it is the bezel that has been wrought from the red ceramic. It is fitted on a Classic Fusion 45 mm in diameter with a finer, more classic profile, but with a black design in line with Hublot's codes.

The polished and satin-finished black ceramic case houses a fully skeleton-worked tourbillon manufactured movement with an assertively elegant and contemporary design and a 5-day power reserve. The colour red can also be found on the little anodised aluminium ring of the tourbillon and on the stiches of the black alligator strap.

The brand

From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.
