Big Bang Unico 42mm

In 2010, Hublot launched its new manufacture movement, the Unico chronograph, which was fitted in its iconic Big Bang model in 2013. A really Big Bang! Fully designed, developed, machined and as-sembled by Hublot’s own engineers, micro-mechanics, and watchmakers, this chronograph movement went under the endearing codename of calibre Unico HUB 1242.

Five years later, the watchmakers from the Nyon manufacture have reworked the structure to offer us an all new Unico movement that is slimmer, giving it perfect dimensions for the 42-mm case of the new Big Bang. Introducing the calibre HUB1280.

 

Big Bang Unico Red Magic

After Hublot’s invention in 2011, Magic Gold, the world’s most scratch resistant 18K carat Gold, thanks to an alloy between boron carbide (ceramic) and 24K carat Gold, the Swiss watchmaking brand has devoted its innovative approach to ceramic. By creating a new material – the first vibrantly coloured ceramic – Hublot has once again used its limitless imagination to achieve a world’s first. Exclusively designed and produced in-house, in the Hublot Research & Development (R&D) department, this invention has been patented. A triple tour de force, the coloured ceramic invented by Hublot is innovative both in terms of the material itself, and the manufacturing process. In addition to the vibrant colour it is also harder than conventional ceramics.

 

Big Bang Sapphire Tourbillon

 

Hublot is already a pioneer when it comes to colouring and shaping of its sapphires cases. This year Hublot is taking the mastery of sapphire crystal, an ultra-resistant material which is difficult to machine, to the next level. The Hublot in-house skeleton tourbillon movement is laid bare, held by a strip cut in sapphire! The new Big Bang Sapphire Tourbillon is completely transparent, including the case, dial, strap and tourbillon movement.

 

Big Bang MP-11

Hublot, the alchemist of high tech materials, presents its new Big Bang MP-11 in 3D carbon. This ultra-light material has been reinforced with three-dimensional fibre woven resin, shaped into a case inspired by a race engine. Equipped with 7 series-coupled barrels providing 2 weeks of autonomy, this mechanical architecture reveals the in-line cylinders within a 3D case with sides in smoking black.

 

Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti

The Classic Fusion Berluti chronograph fuses the vibrant colour of Burgundy red with King Gold, and the depth of ocean blue with titanium. The possibilities open to Berluti’s bespoke expertise in leather and Hublot’s mastery of metals are endless. Two bold Houses that define trends and without ever betraying the rules of elegance, assert their influence on men’s fashion with originality and personality.
