What makes you tic?  It’s no mystery with the Hublot Big Bang King Power Men’s Watch 707.OM.1138.NR.FMO10, as the open skeleton dial reveals the workings of a state-of-the-art Tourbillon mechanism.

Hublot’s watches are among the most innovative in the industry and use a variety of seemingly innocuous materials to create masterpieces.  Instead of relying on flashy designs, the open window of the watch reveals the true beauty of the timepiece—its mechanics.  The skeleton dial reveals the inner workings of the watch which are not only functional, but are fun to watch, as well!

 The Mechanics

Tourbillon watches were created to minimize the errors that can throw your watch off its accuracy through jiggling and jostling.  The carriage of the device encloses the balance, balance spring, and escapement and protects them from the effects of gravity and roughhousing.

 The Materials

Combine the absolute accuracy of the tourbillion with the black zirconium oxide ceramic—a material that is more often found in top-of-the-line racing car brakes than in timepieces—with the durability of a scratch-resistant dial window, a power reserve of up to 120 hours, and water resistance up to 100 meters/330 feet, this watch is as tough as diamonds and will last twice as long.  The Nomex strap is flame-resistant—the same material used in a firefighter’s suit.  This watch is perfect for the heavy duty man who needs a timepiece that survive as much as he can.
