For the love of horology…
Here’s the first live looks at the Hublot Antikythera mechanism, courtesy of Hublot. In the ~3 minute video below, you also get a glimpse into the history of the Antikythera mechanism and why Hublot has decided to recreate it scaled down to wristwatch size. Listening to Hublot Chief Jean-Claude Biver, it sounds like Hublot will make four, and only four, Antikythera wristwatches — one for the Athens Museum, one for the Musee des Arts de Metiers, one for the Hublot museum, and one piece that will be auctioned for charity (supporting the Athens Museum and the Musee des Arts de Metiers). See our prior coverage of the Antikythera mechanism here and here.
