Yachts and watches invariably just seem to go together. In centuries past a precision time-piece was necessary for successful and accurate navigation across oceans. Nowadays if you open up any print mag on yachting you'll no doubt find ads for all the most prestigious watch brands. Personally I'm a huge fan of Hublot, specifically their stealthier models. Those are some gorgeous time-pieces. However, I found one to top them all: HD3 Bi-Axial Vulcania! This watch is a piece of art, inspired by the literary works of Jules Verne and named after the fictional islands of "Vulcania". (Incidentally there's a map of Vulcania etched on the case-back, as well as the coordinates.) This titanium and platinum time-piece also has a bit of naval heritage: the hour wheel is displayed through a lateral porthole, while the minutes are shown on a disk, like a Chadburn ship's telegraph. The power indicator is a sextant and the watch's winding mechanism can be seen underneath. Better reserve one quick though... HD3 Complication is only producing 11 of these!
