Well known by its interesting Limited Edition, some of which are inspired by exclusive secret places in the world, Hublot presented true paradise through its new Oceanographic 4000 Timepiece. It is Cheval Blanc Randheli, an intimate resort for the most demanding clientele, on the Noonu Atoll Island in the Maldives. The renowned Swiss watchmaker pays homage to this amazing location by creating a new version of its high-end diving model, capable to withstand water pressure up to 4000 meters!
Presented in the striking white color that recalls the white sandy beaches of Maldives, new Oceanographic 4000 Cheval Blanc Randheli Limited Edition watch satisfies the highest standards of professional diver’s watches. The Swiss watchmaker spent about 18 months, developing the timepiece that can operate on such an incredible depth. The Oceanographic 4000 matches all international standards of Swiss Watchmaking (NIHS), providing superb water-resistance, great functionality and high readability.
In order to provide the extraordinary toughness, Hublot incorporated synthetic sapphire crystal which is 6.5mm thick. Besides, the case-back is screw-down and made of grade 2 titanium, as well as the entire case. This extremely strong and light material does not ensure just high-end performances, but it also looks great, especially in this satin-finish fashion, combined by polished surfaces.
The case is extremely robust, with the diameter of 48 mm. It incorporates a microblasted titanium bezel which is fixed by 6 black PVD H-shaped titanium screws. It is combined with black composite inserts, which provides a nice aesthetic touch. On the side of the case, at the 10 o’clock position, there is a helium valve that allows gases that enter the watch during the descent in diving chambers, to safely escape during the ascent. Another must-have feature of the high-end diving watch is a screw-down crown. New Hublot King Power Oceanographic has two of that kind. The first one, located at the 2 o’clock position, serves for adjusting the unidirectional rotating, inner bezel ring. The 4 o’clock crown serves for winding and setting time and date.
The dial matches the color of the case and a white rubber strap. It is marked with striking yellow inserts that cover hour markers and central hands, as well as with a diving scale at the inner bezel ring. Their SuperLuminova coating provides superb readability even in the most extreme conditions.
The Oceanographic 4000 Cheval Blanc Randheli Limited Edition watch is powered by an in-house HUB1401 self-winding movement. Built of 180 components, including 23 jewels, it ensures the power-reserve of 42 hours.
