Hublot went all out while preserving the original spirit of the mechanism. The list of features is amazing. Besides the obvious time telling function the front of the contraption contains things like the Zodiac, Panhellenic games calendar, Egyptian calendar, lunar phases and the Sun and Moon aperture. The back side of the device showcases the Callippic, Metonic, Saros and Exeligmos cycles. If you don’t know what these are, hit wikipedia up, this is a watch magazine, not an astronomical one.
