A sporty interpretation of a classic Hublot design, this handsome chronograph is crafted from stainless steel and features a large 43 mm round case paired with a satin steel bezel. Showcased beneath a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, the electric blue dial features luminous hands and silvertone indicators along with a chronograph seconds hand and a date display between the four and five marks. Three round subdials display small seconds and chronograph minute and hours. The watch is showcased a black natural rubber strap, an original signature Hublot element that has now become a staple among other Swiss watch brands. Both elegant and practical, the rubber strap is strong and supple, waterproof, and resistant to sweat, corrosion, and abrasion. A handsome blend of sport and luxury, this Hublot watch offers Swiss quartz precision and water resistance to 100 meters. About Hublot
A relatively new but powerful player among prestige Swiss watchmakers, Hublot traces its origins to 1980, when Carlo Crocco presented his first Hublot watch at the Basel Fair. The design was intended to evoke images of a port hole (in French, "hublot"), with twelve titanium screws securing the bezel to the case. An elegant blend of form and function, sporty yet refined, the Hublot watch quickly became a sensation. Part of its appeal was its radical blend of materials. Judging leather to be too fragile for his purposes, Crocco showcased his solid gold watch on a natural rubber strap. Fusion--of unusual materials, of sport with prestige, and of Swiss watchmaking tradition with modern technology--remains a dominant characteristic of the brand today. Hublot's technical and design expertise culminated recently in its Big Bang chronograph, which debuted in 2005 and went on to win numerous international awards, including Wristwatch of the Year. True to its original nautical inspirations, the Hublot watch company sponsors a number of nautical events and has served as the official timekeeper for the Monaco Classic Week and for the Afflelou Figaro Solo race.
