4 days later, the Mexican People heeded his call and hence the Battle of Guanajuato. It took another 10 years of revolting for Mexico to finally become independent on September 27, 1821.
Hublot is paying tribute to those early days where passion for liberty rose above all.
The vibrant rich forest green hands and number indicators as well as the deep red red counter bridges and red minute tracks exudes this passion. Surrounding the dial is a micro-blasted black ceramic bezel with molded black rubber. Punctuating the bezel is 6 relief black PVD H-shaped titanium screws - a signature of Hublot. Highly resilient black composite resin make up the bezel lugs and lateral inserts. SuperLumonova coats the hands and counters enabling the wearer to discern the time in the dark.
