Hublot Big Bang Alarm Repeater @ Baselworld 2015

Hublot Big Bang Alarm Repeater

Cool! Hublot presents its first alarm wristwatch. The in-house developed and manufactured calibre HUB 5003 sounds good. I have taped the sound of the watch for you and I have a lot of pictures …

 

The new Hublot Big Bang Alarm Repeater is the fusion (that´s typical Hublot vocabulary, otherwise I would have written combination) of two functional complications: a mechanical alarm clock and a second time zone.

The alarm function is indexed on the reference time. At 1 o’clock, a triangular window gradually shows the day/night indicator for the local time.

At 5 o’clock, a 24-hour counter with two hands shows the programmed alarm time; while an “on- off” indicator shows the alarm status at 6 o’clock.

At 7 o’clock, the hammer visible under the sapphire is coated with SuperLuminova so it can be seen at night.

The second time zone has a 24-hour display at 11 o’clock.

The push-button at 2 o’clock is used to adjust the time of the second time zone, while the push-button at 4 o’clock activates the alarm. All the other functions are easily operated using the crown.

The alarm clock chimes for around 16 seconds as a steel hammer strikes a gong.

I of course have a soundfile for you…
