Hublot At the GPHG 2013

Between Antiquity and luxury car, two very original watches by Hublot are participating in the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève.

Hublot had submitted six watches to the GPHG 2013: the Big Bang Jeans Carat (Ladies' Complication category), the Big Bang Unico King Gold Céramique (Men's Watch), the Classic Fusion Haute Joaillerie  "$1 Million" (Jewellery),  the King Power Oceanographic 1000 Carbon (Sport), the MP-05 LaFerrari (Grande Complication) and the Antikythera SunMoon. Only the latter two watches has gone through the preselections and are participating in the final stage of the competition.

MP-05 «LaFerrari»

The MP-05 "LaFerrari"  has been entirely designed and developed by the Hublot Manufacture engineers and watchmakers in tribute to "LaFerrari”, and in parallel with the car, alongside the Ferrari teams.
It features a 50-day power reserve - thanks to its 11 barrels, arranged in a line just like a spinal column and interconnected so that they do not each discharge in turn but support each other -  a world record for a hand-wound Tourbillon wristwatch. It is also the watch with the most watchmaking components created to date by Hublot (637).

The movement has an original display, featuring first off on the front vertical face the small seconds indicated by means of an aluminium cylinder fastened onto the suspended Tourbillon cage.
The hour and minute are displayed to the right of the barrels, also indicated by means of one anodised black aluminium cylinder each. On their left is the cylinder indicating the power reserve. Reinforcing bars either side, made from anodised red aluminium, bring to mind Ferrari's red signature.

Antikythera SunMoo

The Antikythera mechanism is one of the most mysterious objects in the history of civilisation. Discovered in Greek waters in 1901, it is considered the first "astronomical calculator" in the history of humanity, and dates back to the 2nd century BC.

On the 5th April 2012, Hublot exhibited the "Tribute to the Antikythera Mechanism" watch, a complex horological movement developed by Hublot as a tribute to the first "astronomical calculator" in the history of humanity, and probably dating back to the 2nd century BC.

 The "Antikythera SunMoon" watch, is a unique edition of 20 pieces featuring a simplified and miniaturised version of the original mechanism, in honour of this masterpiece of Antiquity.

The movement contains 295 components and 7 complications.  The Antikythera SunMoon includes both a solar and a lunar calendar, as well as an indication showing the sidereal position of the Sun and the Moon. The piece is completed by a flying tourbillon (without ball bearing) which rotates once every minute to indicate the seconds, with the hours and minutes shown by traditional hands at the centre of the movement on the dial side. Frequency 21,600 Vib/h (3 Hz). 120-hour power reserve.

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.
