takes no efforts to mask the aim of their anti-Audemars rockets. While bit money is at stake, I find it amusing to see how the brands bicker back and forth and how Hublot is playing the "if Audemars Piguet
can do it, so can we game." In the latest act of the game, Hublot matches Audemars Piguet in Mexico, with their own limited edition watch to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Mexican independence. Actually, Audemars Piguet an Hublot aren't likely to be the only watch brands that make watches to help remind Mexicans of their victory over the Spanish 200 years ago - but given the recent history of the two brands, I can't imagine that Hublot could have passed up the opportunity to make such a watch. I previously wrote about Audemars Piguet's timepiece for this occasion here
The limited edition of 200 pieces will be divided up into 50 pieces in 18k "King gold" and 150 pieces in black ceramic. The watch is based on the brand's King Power chronograph timepiece, that is 48mm wide with Hublot's HUB4201 automatic movement inside. Anyone can see the obvious use of colors from the Mexican flag on the dials of the watches, and the gold version gets a pretty cool green and black toned, alligator and rubber strap. On the back of the watch is an engraving of the Bell of Dolores. The Bell which when rang, was said to be the start of the Mexican revolution against the Spanish in 1810.
