Hublot King Power Bows

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

A Big Bang with an even stronger, more powerful and further evolved design: the King Power – a timepiece with a complex dial made of several layers in a sober and powerful aesthetic concept, housing a split-seconds foudroyante chronograph movement.—has debuted from Hublot.

The timepiece’s strength lies both in its tradition and faithfulness to the design of the popular Big Bang, as well as in its avant-garde modernism. All its components have been redesigned: the case has been shaped with sharp angles and straight sides, and features raised end pieces and screws. On the case edge, the push pieces stand out more, with the decorative tubes inserted in the black composite resin. The bezel has acquired a new look thanks to the rubber molding around the ceramic. The dial is made of several layers and ten extra elements in addition to the powerful black index markers. The Chronograph and Foudroyante hands are completely new and made on two levels, with two different types of finish.
