a luxury timepiece with transparency in mind

By Gena Ansell-Lande

One of the key principles behind Hublot watchmaking is the art of fusion. Named after the French word for “porthole,” the brand featured the first natural rubber strap in the history of the craft (although now common among upper-tier watchmakers, the use of rubber thirty years ago was a risky move…at the time arguably at odds with luxury banding).

Intricate lines on this Aerofusion Moonphase Black Magic timepiece reveal a modern sophistication Hublot fans will appreciate—detail in the skeleton dial and perpetual calendar lending to its mystique. Look for the moonphase indicator, too, located within the date subdial at the 6 o’clock position. Crafted with painstaking detail, this is a wear-anywhere watch that simply shouts style.
