I tell you, there is nothing worse than getting 13,120+ feet underwater only to find that your watch has stopped working. And Timex can boast all they want about their watch’s ability to keep on ticking after taking a licking, but there’s not a single IronMan in their lineup that’s built like Hublot’s Oceanographic 4000. There are actually two versions of it available. One made with a titanium housing that costs $19,900 and is limited to 1,000 pieces. And one made with black carbon fiber that’s $25,900 and limited to just 500 pieces.
Both are rated to depths of 4,000 meters (hence the ‘4000’ in their name) and manage to stay water and pressure proof thanks to a screw down case back and glass that’s over a 1/4 of an inch thick. (6.5mm) And since you’re dropping so much coin on them, Hublot has been kind enough to include 2 different straps. A rubber band for day-to-day wear, and a longer rubber and nylon composition that can be worn over your diving gear.
