While the watch is quite huge, it does not feel heavy on your wrist, at least I did not have the impression of it being heavy. The Hublot movement carries 512 parts. On the dial, you see the 5 day power reserve. The crown on the right side allows setting of the watch while the crown on the left side allows you to slow down the watch, or speed it up, by 4 times the speed up or down. In a way, you can set “your” time with this watch. You have three setting, slower, faster, and time, which is the correct running time.
The seconds are shown on the right on the above picture in the small window that appears to be nearly a part of the strap.
The open back look nearly unspectaular considering the level of complication of this timepiece which belongs to the Masterpiece collection at Hublot. It is only the second Masterpiece Hublot has created. The first one had a 10 day powerreserve. As you can see on the caseback, the watch is limited to 50 pieces only. The movement is handwound.
Some closeups showing you the green accents on the dial for the time speed setting.
When the Time shows the green barrel, it means the watch is set to run at regular speed.
The space to the left of “4x slower” look black, which means, that this setting has not been chosen.
This is quite an interesting timepiece, the idea and design behind it are unique, and so are the features. If you want to relax and do not have any appointments set, why not set the speed of the watch to 4 times slower…
