This new Hublot is being sold exclusively at Cheval Blanc’s Randheli island resort in Maldives. The (insanely luxurious and ultra contemporary) Randheli resort (check it out here) is one of two resorts under the Cheval Blanc name — which itself is owned by LVMH.
Around for a few years now, the Hublot Oceanographic 4000 was and is in many ways a symbolic watch – its 4000 meter water resistance rating and related technical features (6.5mm sapphire crystal, screw down caseback, screw-down crowns, scaled luminous bezel, oversize crown guard, helium valve) brought together to demonstrate the technical prowess of Hublot’s manufacture. There have been many iterations on this watch, and even a more dialed-back Oceanographic 1000m diver for those who want something *ahem* more practical.
The watch has a design that is fitting for spending beach time in Maldives — titanium case, luminescent indexes in “Cheval Blanc Randheli” yellow, and white rubber strap. What can I say, I like the look of this watch — yes, all 48mm of it.
