A New Hublot Masterpiece.
Following on from the Big Bang, King Power and Classic Fusion collections, Hublot is now presenting the fourth new line of watches, entitled Masterpiece. Imagined, developed and manufactured entirely by the Confrerie Horlogere Hublot, the Master Piece MP-01 is the first Hublot barrel-shaped watch. Featuring tonneau-shaped design, the movement is built on 43 jewels and comprises 384 parts. The three-barrel layout of the movement allows for a healthy power reserve of 10 days with a special power reserve indicator visible through the watch’s transparent case back cover. The dial is partially skeletonized with no self-luminated hands or markers and covered by a scratch resistant sapphire crystal. The markers are an aluminum grid that are attached to the bezel. The watch dial was skilfully openworked by expert hands so that the fine mechanics of the chronograph can be admired. There are three counters indicating: the chronograph seconds at 3 o’clock and the chronograph minutes at 9 o’clock, along with a small seconds counter at 6 o’clock. Another special feature to highlight is the indexes, which continue beyond the titanium bezel. Produced in a numbered series of just 100 pieces, the Hublot MasterPiece MP-01 will be soon available for around $80,000.
