Swiss watchmaker Hublot launched the new King Power Diver watch with a breathtaking inscription on the dial. Water-resistance up to 4000 metres (12000ft)! Sounds almost impossible. With Hublot, it became reality.
Despite its over-sized case, with diameter of 48 mm, King Power Diver is neither too heavy, nor uncomfortable timepiece. Being made of titanium or carbonfibre, it provides toughness and durability, but also takes care about high functionality. Extraordinary resistance on the great dept and long-term activities under the water is possible thanks to the helium escape valve.
This superb diving watch features the inner rotating bezel, regulated by the crown on the upper right side. The crown is over-sized for an easy use under the water and it is protected by the crown guard, so there is no risk that the bezel can be turned over by accident. Smaller crown for time adjustment is located below.
Black dial is designed to be highly legible in extreme situations, with large hour indices and minute indices on the outer rim, all painted in light green Super-Luminova. Hour and minute hands are also green, as well as the top of the second hand.
The Hublot King Power Diver watch is powered by the Calibre HUB 1401. This automatic movement comprises 23 jewels, oscillates at frequency of 28’800 alternations per hour and has a power-reserve of 48 hours.
Timepiece that was presented at Baselworld 2011 features a black rubber strap, with a titanium clasp. Swiss watchmaker prepared two limited editions of 500 pieces in each material. Date of release and the price are still unknown.
