Hublot presents a new version of the La Clef du Temps watch, called “La Clé Du Temps,” which means “the key of time.” Believe it or not, you can actually speed up and slow down time on the dial.
The watch dial, to tell the time, is on the upper right of the dial. The lower left of the dial is a power reserve indicator (looks like 5 days worth in the manually wound movement), and above it is the selector for speeding up for slowing down the time. This is where it gets interesting, and Hublot has clearly changed the format of the dial a bit from the previous watch. Using a crown on the left of the watch you can alter the time to run fast or run slow. A fun, but gimmicky way of “controlling time.” The neat part is that the movement always retains knowledge of the correct time – so you can always switch it back to “normal” mode and the time isn’t all screwed up.
The watch is part of the exclusive Hublot Confrerie range and will release in March 2011.
