Brazilian soccer star Neymar strutted his stuff on the field two days ago when Brazil won against Croatia. On his personal time, Neymar chooses the Hublot King Power Foudroyante Limited Edition. This rugged timepiece has been with this icon for the last four years since its launch 4 years ago before the last World Cup held in South Africa. The Foudroyante from the King Power collection was limited to 500 pieces in total.
This timepiece was made from satin finished zirconium. The round case measures a robust 48mmand raises off the wrist a total of 17.6mm. Though this is pretty thick, it serves to accentuate the sporty aesthetic that the King Power collection strives for.
The bezel features the six iconic ‘H’ shaped screws made from titanium that the brand has made famous. The bezel is crafted from black rubber and zirconium. The bezel lugs are made from high quality black resin – a veritable staple of Hublot’s creations. The main crown is black PVD titanium with the Hublot motif on a black rubber insert. The seamless integration of zirconium and rubber on this watch is a testament to the design capability of Hublot.
The case back on this model is transparent sapphire crystal for the admiration of the decorated movement. Completing the aesthetics of this masterpiece is a black rubber strap fitted with a single folding clasp made from zirconium. The Hublot King Power Foudroyante is water resistant to 100 meters (330 feet).
Powering this watch is a self-winding mechanical movement caliber 4144. This automatic movement features a 42 hour power reserve. Indications include: hours and minutes, small seconds at 3, and a split seconds chronograph function. The term Foudroyante actually means split second chronograph.
The dial is multi-layered black with black Super-LumiNova® hands and indexes for a truly inimitable and distinctive look.
