Hublot To Unveil Limited Edition King Power “305” Timepiece Dedicated To City Of Miami
Luxury Swiss watchmaker, Hublot, is to unveil its new limited edition Hublot King Power “305 timepiece on 26 September, in tribute to the USA’s Magic City – Miami.
The introduction and unveiling of Hublot’s newest masterpiece of technology, art and fusion will be experienced by Miami’s top influencers, celebrities, special Hublot clients and select members of the media.
Engraved with the number “305”, the city’s famous area code, and sporting white and ocean blue to evoke the sand and sea of South Florida, the King Power Miami “305” is a special edition limited to just 50 pieces, specially developed to honour “The Gateway to the Americas”.
This 48 mm-diameter watch, made from King Gold (18 carat gold with 5% platinum which lends it its distinctive red colour) is equipped with a HUB4214 mechanical self-winding skeleton chronograph movement, formed of 257 components, which oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations/hours and boasts a power reserve of approximately 42 hours. The watch’s solid case-back, also in King Gold, is engraved with a view of Miami Downtown and, of course, the number “305”.
The blue Hornback alligator strap, stitched onto white rubber, completes the watch, which is water-resistant to 100 metres. A version set with 374 white diamonds, totalling approximately 3.34 carats, is also available in an extremely restricted run of 10 pieces.
