A unique piece created for Only Watch 2013, the Hublot Red’n’Black Skeleton Tourbillon is the first wristwatch to have a red ceramic component, in this case the bezel.
The bright red ceramic bezel of the Red’n’Black Skeleton Tourbillon has the same property as its common black or white cousins, namely scratch resistance. Red is a thematic colour for Only Watch – the Patek Philippe ref. 5004T is similarly coloured – being the state colour of the Monegasque flag.
Bezel aside, the rest of the watch is mostly a standard Hublot Skeleton Tourbillon. The 45 mm case is in black ceramic, while the movement is an in-house open-worked tourbillon calibre with five day power reserve.
Two addition details reflect the red theme: around the aperture for the tourbillon is a red anodised aluminium ring, echoing the red bezel. And most obviously the strap has red stitching.
This Hublot, along with the rest of the Only Watch 2013 timepieces, will be sold on 28 September 2013 in Monaco, with all proceeds going to the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy. Details of the sale can be found on the Only Watch site.
