This year in Basle, MDM is introducing an intriguing new design : its now-classic Hublot timepiece with quartz movement is now available with an aluminium case with screw-locked back, water-resistant to 50 metres. The muted grey case metal is enhanced by a gloss-polished yellow, white or rose gold bezel. Amazingly resistant despite its light weight, aluminium is particularly corrosion-resistant as well as 100% recyclable. Featuring applied hour markers and a date calendar at 3 o’clock, the Hublot’s black dial is protected by a sapphire crystal. Fitted with a synthetic ((Lorica>> strap, water repellent but as supple as leather; aluminium clasp.
