The Hublot King Power 692 Bang is a limited edition inspired by New York taxicab. It comes in yellow-and-black color. It’s an ode to New York City, in all its unabashed industry and luxury, home of the brand’s Madison Avenue American flagship boutique.
The Hublot King Power 692 Bang is a big watch.But is’s wearable – as wearable as a watch in this aesthetic can be. owering the 692 Bang is the self-winding caliber HUB4100 with 42-hour power reserve. This flyback chronograph movement from LajouxPerret is built around a column-wheel mechanism as opposed to a coulisse-lever mechanism. The former is more costly to produce, and is a feature generally seen in higher-end chronograph movements.
The sapphire crystal on the case back has been coated with a rendering of the Hublot boutique’s façade, along with the “692 NYC” insignia . This design treatment is nice in theory as the movement is intended to be viewed transparent “windows” of the façade.
However, the mix of the brick façade pattern, bold yellow insignia, and striations on the transparent portions result in a discordant array of patterns. A more focused design choice, for example, could have been a solid ceramic case back with the Hublot NYC-boutique engraved on it.
On the dial, the bold hour and minute hands are colored the same bright yellow as the baton-shaped hour indices and minute track. On the outermost portion, Arabic numerals in intervals of five are rendered in sky-blue and the same stenciled typeface as the “692 NYC” insignia on the case back. This sky-blue color is an unexpected choice that is further carried through to the tip of the chronograph hand.
In addition to the sub-seconds dial at 9 o’clock, there are two chronograph registers on the dial: a 30-minute totalizer at 3 o’clock and a 12-hour totalizer at six. A small aperture for the date sits between 4 and 5 o’clock.
If you looking a dress watch,Hublot King Power 692 Bang is a good choice for you.
