    In association with the omega replica Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, Hublot unveils the first diver's watch able to withstand the pressure exerted at a depth of 4,000 meters, or about 13,120 feet. Hublot describes it as a symbolic watch that pushes the limits of what is is watches rational and possible. The replica tag heuer watches required 18 months of research, development and testing to complete. Hardly a watch enthusiast can be found today without at least one rubber strapped watch in their personal collection they are standard equipment on sport replica watches, but at the time the Hublot (French for porthole) was introduced, rubber was not to be found on a fine timepiece. The rubber strap is specially made to not crack or stain, it is chemically fused with steel for strength and mixed with a rare and potent vanilla to eliminate the odor associated with rubber. New elements and materials are being brought together to form pieces such as the Big Bang.
