Astrology of Horology Series: Cancer 2010
The sign of Cancer is the crab. Since these crustaceans live in the inter-tidal zone of the oceans and need protection, it’s only fitting to pick a watch that is not only waterproof but also durable. Hublot offers a bold and stylish selection for Cancer ladies with its Big Bang Steel Tutti Frutti line.
The Hublot Tutti Frutti is not a delicate creature and is at home in the water. The Cancer can swim, snorkel and afterwards shower off, because the Tutti Frutti is water resistant to 100 meters. Still, this isn’t some bulky sport watch. The Tutti Frutti possesses undeniable panache, mixing seemingly incompatible materials like gemstones and stainless steel into a stylish and progressive combination.
Those of you familiar with lady Cancer know she can cycle through moods faster than the changing of the tides. Fortunately, the Tutti Frutti expresses a horological gamut of emotions in striking color. These models draw from a bold palette similar to those found in a box of Otter Pops, from cotton candy pink and electric yellow to neon orange and a Caribbean Sea blue. Even the finicky crab will find one of the hues in sync with her rhythms.
While the Cancer is completely capable of taking care of herself, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t enjoy being pampered. The Tutti Frutti tends to this part of her nature by making the dial in iridescent mother of pearl and jewelling the bezel with sparklies including blue topaz and an assortment of fiery sapphires.
Just because the Tutti Frutti is beautiful doesn’t mean it’s not functional too. Powering the watch is the Hublot Calibre HUB4300, a self-winding mechanical movement with a chronograph and date conveniently tucked in between 4 and 5 o’clock.
The sign of Cancer is associated with the element water. Astrologically speaking water symbolizes emotion. Though this lady may appear calm, cool and unruffled on the outside, she can be churning white water rapids below. With a Tutti Frutti wrapped round her wrist she’ll be giving a signal you shouldn’t dare take her at face value or underestimate her capabilities.
Cancers are sensitive folk and can be crushed by harsh words. Likewise, they are sentimental and get very attached to things. Whatever the occasion, whether a special person makes a gift of the Tutti Frutti or she purchases one for herself, the Cancer is sure to remember the moment and cherish the watch.
With her combination of traits and shifting moods—which also includes a delightful sense of humor—the Cancer and the Tutti Frutti timepiece are definitely compatible from an astrologic perspective.
