HUBLOT – Unico Movement.
The UNICO Manufacture movement
The UNICO Manufacture movement was chosen because it represents the brand’s signature chronograph movement. Requiring over 2 years of research and develoment, the in-house Unico movement has been entirely machined, developed, designed and assembled by watchmakers, engineers and micro-mechanics at the brand Manufacture. Composed of no less than 330 individually assembled components, the movement features a flyback chronograph which can be reset at any time with dual coupling and the famous "column wheel" positioned on the dial side; something rare and unusual in haute horlogerie.
In order to gain reliability and robustness the movement has been developed in a completely original approach, in a league of its own. The chronograph mecanism has no jumper and the barrel directly drives the hour counter. Thanks to the lightness of the pallet fork and the escapement wheel made from silicon and fixed to a removable platform, the movement is a guarantee of performance.
This result is the fruit of continual adjustments made since 2009, the entire movement has been developed and designed to reflect Hublot's pure DNA: sport, performance and technology. The design is stylish, practical and rational.
Since its creation, the Unico movement has also been made with additional functions and complications, including a world-time GMT, a patented bi-retrograde chronograph for timing football matches as well as tourbillon escapements and perpetual calendar functions.
Hublot's strength resides in its very clear identity - the art of fusion - this unique ability to create timepieces which combine tradition and innovation.Ricardo Guadalupe, Chief Executive Officer
