Hublot Oceanographic 4000 Titanium is another deep dive into the watch world of fused materials to create as Hublot aptly puts it “The art of fusion”.
Hublot does not mind diving into the deep, the deep world of materials and surfacing with watches fused with materials that make a statement. The Oceanographic 4000 Titanium is Hublot’s latest limited edition diving watch that makes it own fused material statement.
At first glance the bold watch case design appears familiar, however, the materials used to manufacture this watch include titanium, PVD titanium screws and black composite resin, an interesting fusion of materials indeed. The Oceanographic 4000 Titanium took approximately eighteen months to develop and is capable of withstanding diving pressures of 4000 meters. This tenacious technical achievement has earned Hublot Oceanographic 4000 Titanium recognition from the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco.
Features that have earned Hublot Oceanographic 4000 Titanium an association with the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco is its ability to maintain water tightness and accuracy at such depths due in part to its synthetic sapphire crystal and titanium case.
The dial of this watch presents time against a black matte background which is complemented by contrasting green luminescent hour and minute indications and rhodium plated hour, minute and seconds hands. The partially skeletonized seconds hand has a green luminescent arrow tip and it has a date window which is located 3 o’clock. The bezel is located on a flange just below the anti-reflective synthetic sapphire crystal which is 6.5mm thick. There are 2 crowns: a flange crown located at 2 o’clock used to adjust the internal bezel and features a bayonet fitting and crown guard marked “DIVER 400”; the second crown has a rubber insert located at 4 o’clock with a visible Hublot logo.
Oceanographic 4000 Titanium movement is housed in a 48mm titanium case and features the HUB1401 calibre. It is a self-winding movement with 180 parts and 23 jewels. The calibre has rhodium plated bridges, satin finished with chamfered edges. The rotor is Tungsten, openworked and coated in black PVD. The main plate is rhodium plated and microblasted.
