Made of titanium, with luminescent indexes in Cheval Blanc Randheli yellow, the watch can withstand the pressure exerted at the extreme depth of 4,000m. The Oceanographic 4000 took 18 months of research, development so as to meet the most demanding requirements of both professional divers and watch enthusiasts. Almost all the features of the Oceanographic 4000 are exceptional, in terms of design, development and manufacturing. To be described as a "montre de plongée" (diver's watch), resistant to the pressure exerted at the record depth of 4,000 metres, the watch had to meet the specifications of the international standards of Swiss Watchmaking (NIHS).

The watch was tested by Hublot in a Roxer tank, submerged and pressurised to the equivalent of 5,000 metres. To ensure the water tightness of the watch and to resist this extreme pressure, the synthetic sapphire crystal is 6.5mm thick. This is thicker than normal, but is reasonable for this level of resistance. The case back is screw-down to enable reaching such depths and is made of grade 2 titanium, a light yet strong stainless material.

As for legibility in dark conditions, the time and elapsed time measured by the flange must still be legible from a distance of 25 cm. To meet this requirement, the dial, the flange and the hands of the Oceanographic 4000 have a larger surface area treated with SuperLuminova.

Other features include a unidirectional bezel and an oversized crown guard. The second crown, for winding and setting the time and date, is positioned at 4 o'clock to avoid obstruction. The Oceanographic 4000 also has a helium valve. The helium valve located at 10 o’clock allows gases that have infiltrated the watch during the descent to safely escape during the ascent.

Finally, the watch comes with a white rubber strap with a buckle straps. Two small push buttons built into each end of the case allow the strap to be changed instantly without the use of a screwdriver or any other accessory.
