Factory Prototype Hublot Aerofusion Chronograph “Molon Labe” titanium and bronze limited edition for The Rake
Created in 2005 the Hublot Big Bang united traditional watchmaking with exciting contemporary design and the use of modern materials. The Aerofusion refers to a fully skeletonized chronograph model that allows you to see the inner mechanics of the in-house Unico movement powering your watch.
The “Molon Labe” was conceptualized as a fusion of ancient and modern materials. Its name comes from the response from Leonidas – the King of the 300 Spartans, who defended Thermopylae from the army of Xerces of Persia. In the face of overwhelming odds, he and his force of elite soldiers were commanded to lay down their weapons. His response to this was “Molon labe”, or “come and get them”.
The Spartans shields were made from bronze, the same material for this watch’s bezel. The “Molon Labe” was created in a 25-piece limited edition for The Rake in 2018 and was rapidly sold out. Beware The Rake and Revolution founder intends to bid on this watch as the “Molon Labe” he reserved with number 1, was sold behind his back to a customer in London and he is still pissed off by this.
