This is a Perpetual Calendar with Revolving Moonphase. Cased in Pink Gold 43mm in diameter, 13mm in thickness. The movement is manual winding with over 4 days power reserve.
This is a watch that commands attention and leaves a distinct impression on the beholder. Truly special. Have a look at the montage to appreciate the watch. To view it, CLICK HERE.
JLC announced at Basel this year that they will be releasing their new Master Tourbillon. Here is the picture of the new timepiece which has taken the watch world by storm. The tourbillon was once available only to the filthy rich and famous is now almost within access to the average professional man - at 35,000 euros.

Hublot's latest effort into high horology is surprising - at least for me - as it's a bold and rare timepiece for collectors. This creative new tourbillon delivered in interesting new grades contrasting metals will have only 9 owners worldwide - making it a true limited edition.
It may look garishly loud due to its proportions in the photos but have a look at the watch in the photomontage to see if the designer has succeeded in making an iconic piece for Hublot. I think they managed to convey a strong looking watch in the case shape but not overly loud due to the austere dial. For me apart from the clever looking tourbillon, the movement plate is ground breaking - looking very much like a Printed Circuit Board!.
