Hublot has again demonstrated they aren't afraid of incorporating up-to-date tech in their new products. The Red Carbon has been designed with a light but tough carbon fiber shot through with bright red striations and a matching red velcro strap.
The watchmaker says in a release that the "red accents consist of micro-glass fibers in the form of 'Non-Woven Fabric' (NWF)." This design further strengthens the composite material from which the case is made.
Hublot picked this particular blend of materials for both high performance and to reflect both Ovechkin’s "extraordinary resilience and longevity."
The eye-catching red detail work reflects the color of the Russian flag in addition to the jersey colors of the team Ovechkin leads as captain, the NHL's Washington Capitals.
Via Hublot, here are selected specs for the Red Carbon Alex Ovechkin:
- 45mm diameter case.
