Hublot has officially announced its new movement, which is the first in-house movement for the manufacture, at the opening of Hublot’s new manufacture in Switzerland. The UNICO name will actually be used to represent Hublot’s new family of Calibers. To start Hublot will be releasing just two calibers for 2010, the first Caliber HUB1240 and the second will be the Unico 1110. Caliber HUB1240 is right now still just a functional prototype but it will be ready for use in 2010. The UNICO movement was designated to be part of Hublot’s new “King Power” models.
The Caliber HUB1240 is a chronograph movement, composed from 330 parts. The 36-jewel-movement has a total diameter of 30.40 mm, and is 8.05 mm high. Its functions include traditional hours and minutes, small seconds at 9 o’clock, the date, a 60-second and 60-minute chronograph and offers about 70 hours of power-reserve. The escapement is made from silicon, chosen for its light weight and durable nature. Hublot plans to produce 2,000 UNICO movements in 2010, and approximately 20,000 movements in the medium term.
