Give me liberty, or give me death…and tell me what time it is while you’re at it!
One thing I like about Hublot is all the wild Hublot-branded accessories they come up with. More than your usually seen cufflinks and pens that other brands will often produce as companion items for their watches, Hublot goes all out with items like skis, a bicycle, and so on. This year Hublot has a very cool item courtesy of the its talented and highly specialized watchmaking division known as the Confrérie Horlogère (this group makes Hublot’s highly complicated watches, for example its new in-house tourbillon).
So what we have here is a reinterpretation of the pocket watch in the form of a gun cartridge, poetically christened “Liberty” and housing a Tourbillon. These “bullets” can be worn on a bracelete or as a pendant or I suppose even carried in one’s pocket. They are constructed with a titanium bullet head and black aluminum base. As you can see, the time display is a “roller display”. “Whether your desire is to save time, let it slip by or even kill it, freedom of choice is priceless … ” hahahah – I like it!
Editor’s Update: On sale as of June 2010. Price? $79,000 per pair (some expensive firepower!)
