The renowned Hublot watch manufacturer stands out for its innovation, exclusivity and design. However, only one word has defined it throughout all its years: fusion. And it is precisely this characteristic that identifies the most recent launch of the renowned Swiss firm. The iconic Big Bang design evolves to accommodate the exclusive Hublot movement, the Unico, the chronograph movement with column wheel and double clutch visible on the dial side, 100% designed, developed and produced in the Hublot Manufacture workshops. . The result, presented in the first 4 bestselling watch references, is destined to become the starting point for a new collection of Hublot products that will complete the Big Bang, Classic Fusion, King Power and Masterpieces collections.
Among its characteristics, the new Hublot Big Bang Unico stands out for a powerful 45.5 mm diameter case, elegant and mechanical, with a bezel fixed with 6 H-shaped screws that present a new design that is even more technical and subtle ( the head of the screws is now embossed, allowing two alternate finishes: polished and matte). The crown exhibits a screwed design, molded in rubber and whose profile is decorated with the famous H of the Hublot screw. While for the first time since the creation of the Big Bang, the push buttons are round. The sharp angles and clever sandwich case construction have been retained, but the attachment of the bracelet has been greatly optimized. From now on, the famous One Click system is used, which allows the owner to switch between a wide variety of bracelets as desired. The movement is displayed thanks to a skeletonized dial that incorporates the famous Arabic numerals and indexes updated to make them more solid (in addition, they have been emptied and filled with SuperLuminova) as well as two counters surrounded by a polished ring, the first for the minutes, located at 3 o’clock and the second for the small seconds, located at 9 o’clock. The date window is, for its part, visible at 3 o’clock. The hands have also been updated, faceted on two levels and filled with Superluminova.
On the other hand, when it comes to the Unico manufacturing movement, it has become the engine of the house. The Unico has been 100% designed, developed, machined and assembled by Hublot’s micromechanics, engineers and watchmakers. It is a flyback chronograph, unique in the watchmaking industry, with two push-buttons and date indication, whose particularity is the positioning of its double clutch mechanism and the famous column wheel, visible on the side of the dial.
When innovation is such, precedents are set that mark a milestone in the history of a brand. In the case of Hublot, its Unico movement is the movement par excellence and its fusion with the exclusive and avant-garde design of the Big Bang, only affirms the supremacy of the Hublot models in the world of luxury manufacturing.
