Today we can preview an interesting new model to come from Swiss watch maker Hublot in 2012 – the King Power Unico GMT Watch. Featuring a new in-house developed movement, the watch showcases in a new innovative way 24 timezones on the dial.
“The four GMT discs move with the main time. Using the little red lines and city names around the bezel and inside of the dial you can tell the time in each of the 24 hour time zones. Neat right? I like the novel approach that combines a little Hublot, a time honored complication, and what feels like some Urwerk inspiration given a dial that looks like the satellite time display on the UR-103 series.
The King Power Unico GMT watch will come in a 48mm wide King Power case in either 18k king gold or in black ceramic. Both versions have ceramic bezels. Inside the watch is the Hublot caliber HUB 1220 automatic GMT movement with 72 hours of power reserve. Notice the placement of the main time adjustment pusher placed at about 2 o’clock on the case.”
A release is scheduled for early 2012, so keep your eyes open for these to turn up.
