Dubbed “Tourbillon Vendome”, it was developed in tribute to the recent opening of the Hublot boutique in Place Vendôme. Hence two small columns can be seen on the dial side (two for 200 years), framing the tourbillon cage. Crafted from bronze, they are perfect replicas of the column in Place Vendôme, which celebrated its bicentenary (in lights thanks to Hublot) last December.
The flying tourbillon movement dubbed HUB6003 was entirely developed and manufactured within the Hublot manufacture. With 210 components, it boasts the special feature of a 5-day power reserve. This exceptional piece comes in two versions: a 5N red gold version, and a version made from microblasted black ceramic.
