They say that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but do you ever wish that you could take a piece of the Glitter Gulch with you?  With a brilliant set of diamonds blazing around the bezel and a bold color scheme as bright as the city itself, the Hublot King Power Unico Mens Wrist Watch 701.OX.0180.RX.1704 puts fun and functionality into one timely timepiece.

It’s no wonder why Hublot named this series of watches the “King Power” line. With enough diamonds to fund a small principality and the remarkable Swiss mechanics that keeps on ticking make sure that this watch lives up to its name.  Hublot is also known for their prowess in tweaking commonplace materials, such as rubber and transforming it into a material worthy of working with precious materials such as gold.  They are also well-known for their pure zirconium oxide ceramic –a ceramic variation almost as tough as the diamonds embedded in the bezel of this watch and their use of rubber with the watches, which not only provide a comfortable fit, but rubber also has the unique quality of regenerating itself when in contact with skin.

Hublot products are usually recognized for their simplicity, but this watch highlights the brilliance of the watch design by juxtaposing it against the busy background of a diamond waterfall.  The minimal mechanics revealed by the skeleton dial juxtaposed with the flash of the diamonds adds a touch of whimsy to the piece.  Don’t let all the sparkle fool you—with a chronograph and date function, comfortable rubber wristband, and a water resistance of up to 100 meters/330 feet, this watch is as functional as it is funky.  The six screws around the bezel not only help anchor the watch in place, but also add a fun design element.

  • Date function
  • Automatic movement

 Cons

Readability is certainly an issue with this spiffy watch.  The bling and visible mechanics are very busy and draw the eye away from the true function of the watch.
