A hot little number from Nubeo.

Two fundamental elements of the timepiece create the essence of the black jellyfish. These elements are the bezel and the strap. In them, we have merged two materials of conflicting natures as if they were one.
The body of the bezel is made of stainless steel that in a second process is covered with rubber. In the upper part of the bezel are inlaid the twelve numbers of the hours. These numbers are large and their top part respects the spherical shape of the bezel, being slightly lower in order to protect them from bumps and scratches. For the elaboration of this piece it was necessary to develop a new technology in the process of rubber injection that up to now had not been possible in the manufacturing of bezels of this type.

The rubber strap has a characteristic that makes it very special. It has inserted stainless steel links in the central part that are completely fixed to the rubber strap. In this way the strap does not lose its flexibility and comfort of conventional straps. The links have some interior tabs that permit maximum flexibility of the rubber and in turn permit the links to go along with the movement or torsion of the strap itself. Situated on the side of the rubber strap, are the screws that serve in assembling these links. These screws are the same, that are used in the case back and in order to unblock them, a special tool is needed. Both the numbers of the bezel and the links of the strap have a brushed matte finish.
