Hublot Antikythera replica watch based on 2000 years of history
Hublot will never shy away from the special edition watches, but their “Antikythera” watches are truly outstanding. This masterpiece is a tribute to the Antikythera mechanism, which is an ancient analog computer designed to calculate astronomical positions.
Considered to be the oldest complex scientific calculator in the world, the true origin of this mechanism is still unknown. Its construction can be traced back to the first century BC, and did not come out until the 14th century AD, when the technology was the invention of the mechanical astronomical clock in Western Europe.
Hublot has exquisitely miniaturized the Antikythera mechanism in the form of modern watches replica four times. They managed to reproduce the ancient astrological calendar, including the incredible time, ellipse and planetary gear system. It is powered by a tourbillon and can display the time. Now there are only four people, one of whom will go to the Athens Museum, where the original Antikythera remains are located.
