Hublot Boutique 2017 Novetly Event

Invited by Maxime, the Boutique manager of Hublot Hong Kong to have a wonderful tour to the watches at Hublot Today.

Me, being a watch lover and Blogger have brought some of the members of HKWF Club there.

MP-05 "LaFerrari

Hublot defied every convention in 1980, when Carlo Crocco created the gold Hublot watch with the first natural black rubber bracelet in the history of watch making. It has now become the inspiration for a watch making style famous everywhere.

Started with Classic (37mm), migrating to Big Bang (44mm),
Classic Fusion (45mm), transforming into larger format of King Power (48mm), then Big Bang Unico (45mm).
There are all the series created by Hublot, the art of Fusion!

First unveiled Hublot LaFerrari in Sapphire 

Unveiled in 2013, the MP-05 "LaFerrari", created as a tribute to the eponymous supercar, showcased its unique and ultra-complex architecture. The lines of the MP-05 LaFerrari are the result of close collaboration between the designers and watchmakers working on the Hublot movement and Ferrari's design director, Flavio Manzoni. The movement itself was fully designed, developed and produced by the Hublot Manufacture engineers and watchmakers.

A record-breaking technical feat. Its tourbillon boasts an impressive 50-day power reserve – thanks to its 11 series-coupled barrels set in a spine formation down the centre of the watch. Its movement broke the record for the highest number of components for a Hublot movement to date – 637 in all. Boasting a futuristic design, the construction showed off the bold shape of its movement, even in its original version.

While the original design of the MP-05 “LaFerrari” was created to show off the beauty of its movement, its alter ego – with its case carved out of sapphire – is a movement which appears to be literally suspended in mid-air. All the details of this record-breaking movement can be admired from all angles. With the MP-05 “LaFerrari” Sapphire, Hublot takes us into a supernatural world. A material presence which is almost intangible.

With the MP-05 “LaFerrari” Sapphire, Hublot is writing a new chapter in the history of the brand. The three-dimensional construction of the case middle, in sapphire, provides an exceptional setting for the movement. The movement can now be admired from every angle. It appears to be suspended in mid-air in this bespoke setting carved from sapphire.

In fact, this movement finally has the sculptured bodywork it deserves! An ambitious project. The sapphire case middle is composed of 7 components machined from 7 blocks of sapphire and involved over 600 hours work. Carving the case's ultra-complex architecture out of sapphire using 3D machining presented a further challenge. The result of 18 months' development weighs, a 53.5 grams case on the wrist.

Only Limited to 10 pieces, this is No. 09, the only piece happened to be seen in Hong Kong Today. Those lines on the case is actually the transparent tape that was used to protect the watch.
Price is HK$3,970,000  approx.

Special mini electrical winder for wind up the 50 days power at the end of the watch! Amazing tool! I believe it is a free accessory when you buy the "LaFerrari" as it may take you half an hour to wind up the power plant of the watch by hand manually.


With its new Manufacture Piece (MP), Hublot is pushing back the boundaries in terms of multi-axis tourbillons. The MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis is thus the result of a powerful idea: to provide a maximum of visibility on the tourbillon—and its fascinating double rotation—by designing a fine watchmaking movement devoted to this objective, and then creating an original case that highlights the 100% manufacture calibre. Here, the function defines the form. This perfectly reflects the prevailing philosophy in the design of all of Hublot’s “MPs”, namely to develop an exclusive movement dedicated to a function and to design specific external parts to highlight this motor.
“With our Manufacture Pieces, we are taking the expression of our watchmaking savoir-faire very far and making the most of it to give each watch a specific aesthetic”
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot

This Hublot is paved with a lot of diamonds, and I am sure you don't need to tell the time as no one will really need to read the time.  HK$3,950,000.

This is something I like and I am thinking that the price is also very affordable for a working class like I. Very heavy piece of solid gold to house the beautiful movement. It tells you the Month, Day, Date and the Moonphase, a very Classical approach of an contemporary brand of Hublot!

A collaboration between Pied De Poule, Rubinacci (Italian Tailor) and Hublot to create this authentic fabic "Rubinacci "Prince of Wales" suit.... a very unique and beautiful piece like no others.  A typical vibrant yet classic dress watch.

Unico Titanium

Unico King Gold

Just reached HK yesterday after BaselWorld. New Hublot with the case made of Sapphire! In Blue

In Red

Thanks for the invitation and we are really open eyes to see so many glamorous luxury watches like the MP-09. And MP-05 with sophisticated design by adopting new Swiss watch manufacturing technique with innovative technologic achievement.

Sometimes it is needed to consider to change, by wearing watch of the contemporary design on the alternate days!
Probably it will make my life more interesting and less boring!

What's new about Rolex in April 2017?


A Like New Submariner 16610LV Flat Four

There has been quiet for a period of time Jan to March as people are watching what new stuff will be launched at BaselWorld.

Well, Rolex will produce a Sea-Dweller Single Red Ref 126600 and prices at CHF10.800 .

New feature are 43mm case, It’s got a Cyclops for it’s 50th anniversary 1967-2017. I think when it is available price must be higher than HK$110,000.

And I have heard that Rolex has discontinued the production of current Ref 116600 Sea-dweller. So there is a surge of Gray dealer price HK$63,000 last week up to now HK$67,000 this week!

So if you have a BNIB Sea-Dweller. Please keep it and it may hold the price for a period of time and Rise again to above HK$75,000.

Daytona ceramic  2016

Daytona Ceramic Ref 116500LN white stands still at price HK$131,000 where black is HK$126,000 (average)



More obviously that I see rise of demand on Submariner 50th anniversary Ref 16610LV Kermit, as In Mong Kok Watch shop, like Kwan Yan, P n F, London’ s watch, Wing Kwong, I have counted there are about 12 prices, these are their prices.

Ref 16610LV NOS or Mint Flat Four full set : HK$110,000

Ref 16610LV sharp four paper and box :HK$71,000

Ref 16610LV sharp four watch only HK$57,000 to $66,000

Price: on the rise.

Submariner Ref 116610LV Hulk

I have noticed that there is little supply at Gray dealer, and price is going up.

Noticeably the gray dealer price is HK$69,000 to HK$71,000

So in my experience, the price of such rise of Hulk indicating lesser supply, I speculate that the Hulk will be also be “Discontinued” soon.

So if you can get a Hulk BNIB at HK$70K, I suggest buy before too late.
