Hublot Big Bang watches are the company’s flagship wristwatch. Big Bang is a continuation of the innovative, Geneva-based watchmaking brand’s use of metal and rubber. Big Bang, which debuted in 2005, continues to push forth, with features such as a power reserve indicator, split seconds, and an outstanding date display.
What began in 1980 as a single-watch concept brought together a precious material and rubber for the first time, turned out to be a true revolution in the design of luxury watches. Hublot now manufactures a plethora of highly complicated mechanisms, spectacular chronographs, elegant sports watches, stunning jewelry pieces, revolutionary diving models, and a variety of limited series dedicated to the label’s collaborators and ambassadors. Here’s a list of spectacular Hublot Big Bang watches.
- Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold Watch
The Unico Full Magic Gold is a spectacular Hublot Big Bang watch, a special flyback chronograph with a column-wheel designed as a commemorative piece to indicate the Big Bang collection’s tenth anniversary. This amazing watch is housed in a case made of the brand’s patented Magic Gold alloy and titanium, and it has a skeletonized dial. It was released in a 250-piece limited edition. The gold alloy that they developed in collaboration with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, also known for its abbreviation EPFL has extraordinary properties and is regarded as the most resilient type of gold. The process of making it includes combining 24K pure gold with modern high-tech materials.
The name “Full Magic Gold” on the new Hublot watch does not imply that it is entirely made of this substance. The rear is made of micro-blasted and PVD-treated titanium. Its bezel’s lower section is formed with composite resin, and it is held together by six H-shaped screws made of black PVD titanium. This watch with reference number 411.MX.1138.RX has a circular case with a diameter of 45 mm. Its crown with the brand’s logo and the chronograph pushers are constructed with PVD-treated titanium with a black stained finish on the right side of the case band. The construction’s supported water resistance measures 100 meters.
Sapphire crystals are embedded on both sides of the housing. The one on the front is glare-proofed and ornamented with the brand’s logo, which is printed on the inner side. The dial of this watch is skeletonized, revealing the most important components of the watch’s movement. It also has gold-plated Arabic numerals and hour markings that are satin finished as well as coated with black SuperLuminova. Its central hands are built the same way, with the exception that they are also treated with a micro-blasted finish. The HUB1242 caliber is at the heart of the watch’s operation. It has 38 jewels in a self-winding movement. The diameter of the in-house caliber used by the brand in several other models from the same collection is 30 mm.
- Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Watch
Hublot has unveiled a piece created in partnership with one of the world’s most well-known automobile manufacturers. The Hublot Big Bang Ferrari is available in three limited editions made of different materials: King Gold, titanium, and carbon. The watch incorporates several motifs that resemble car components throughout its three-dimensional dial case, as well as its movement. Most of these elements can be seen on the watch’s dial. The most noticeable is Ferrari’s prancing horse icon. Also included is a small second counter on the chronograph that is designed to look like an air extractor from a car.
The piece’s skeletonized dial also features a novel shape for the hour and minute hands, as well as numerals that are precisely positioned. Rather than being placed horizontally, its four supported Arabic numerals follow the lines of hour symbols and are thus tilted to one side. It brings up an interesting effect, and while it does not affect visibility, it may be an issue for people who prefer the traditional dial layout. Further Ferrari-inspired themes can be seen in the design of the watch’s 45 mm wide round housing. It’s mostly accomplished through the appearance of the push buttons that resemble car pedals and the crown that is made in the shape of the Turbo Performance Engineer and is normally in the center of a Ferrari dashboard. All elements are made of black PVD titanium and have a micro-blasted finish.
- Hublot Big Bang Unico Bi-Retrograde Juventus
Hublot has released a special limited edition timekeeper to commemorate its sponsorship of the illustrious Italian soccer club, Juventus. The latest addition to the Big Bang collection is made in the colors of the Old Lady, as the club is renowned, and it has a black and white appearance to mimic the team’s kits. The ceramic watch also has great functions, as its column-wheel chronograph Unico automatic movement is specifically created to assess 45-minute intervals, the length of a football game. It accomplishes this through the use of two retrograde central Chrono hands.
Because this watch is designed to measure a soccer game, the chronograph takes the lead at the top of the dial, whereas the hours and minutes are moved down and microphoned rhodium satin-finished hands with luminescent coatings are placed on an off-centered board. A retrograde scale for the stopwatch feature is located in the upper section of the face. This explicitly marks the end of a 45-minute interval while also allowing the wearer to keep track of any potential overtime or stoppage time during each half.
Its name Bi-Retrograde refers to the fact that the described retrograde scale is the path for two hands, which is used for minutes and seconds. To make the piece more legible, the hands are different lengths and colors that correspond to different parts of the scale. On the upper section of the dial, there is also an aperture that indicates which half of the match is currently being played. The watch’s inventive functions are enabled by its HUB1261 self-winding mechanical movement.
Hublot Big Bang has a plethora of spectacular models. They’re distinct, so there are many components and styles of watch straps. They have a long history of producing sports watches, limited edition watches, and one-of-a-kind special edition watches. It is worth the expense to own one.
