Hublot King Power Unico GMT watch
Hublot introduces its year end model, called the King Power Unico GMT watch, which has plethora of time zones on its dial.
Like most from Hublot, this watch also comes with the usual round dial ring, with smoothened but well defined edges of the overall chassis. Same is the case with the Hublot logo engraved side crown.
Available in black ceramic and 18-carat King yellow gold options, the central unit features the carved multi-layered main dial, which has 6 time-zones on the upper ring, 4 on the inner ring, and the layers beneath that.
While 2 geometrically carved hands try to display the hour and minutes, which can be guessed only through their positioning, a ‘+’ shape carving in between point out 4 of the time zones in 24-hour format, displayed on the 4 corresponding micro-dials alongside, which have red Arabic numerals, on steel finishing surfaces.
On the inside, there is the HUB 1220 automatic GMT tourbillon movement, which has 72 hours of power reserve after every recharge. We are yet to know the detailed anatomy of the movement components, but we are sure about it being rather complicated to support the 24 different time zone functions.
