At Hublot sapphire has been the material that has enhanced the brand’s Art of Fusion to its maximum over the years.
Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II
This year the Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire takes things to the next level with a new integral bracelet and case custom-made entirely from sapphire. With this piece, Hublot is pushing the boundaries further than ever before with a technological masterpiece. The case of this new Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire has been reconstructed in its entirety to house the Automatic Tourbillon movement with almost all visible screws removed and a complete overhaul of the geometry of the case to integrate the sapphire bracelet as well as reworking the bridges and main plates to give them the illusion of being suspended in space. The case is thus composed of no fewer than 37 components, five of which are made solely from sapphire. The bracelet was also a complex challenge: it alone comprises 165 components, 22 of which are made from sapphire. The watch features the HUB6035 automatic manufacture calibre, entirely designed and manufactured in-house. This watch is limited to 30 pieces.
The new Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic invites you to enjoy the sunny side of life thanks to its bold yellow ceramic. The innovation involved in producing this patented ceramic in bold yellow took The Hublot Manufacture’s expertise to the next level. It took four years of developments to find the perfect balance of temperature and pressure enabling the ceramic to be sintered without burning the pigments. The yellow magic watch features a 42mm case and the Unico HUB1280 manufacture movement. The brightness continues right down to its lined and structured yellow rubber strap. This watch is available in a limited edition of 250 pieces.
Continuing the collaboration between Hublot and London-based tattoo studio Sang Bleu the brand unveils a trio of timepieces in ceramic – three limited-edition Big Bang watches that explore new territories of colour. Now available in blue, grey and white these three watches add to the technical achievement of having successfully created perfectly and evenly coloured ceramic. Designed by Maxime Plescia-Buchi and Hublot the three new watches feature a complex design that reflects that of a tattoo. Each watch comes in a 45mm case made entirely from high-tech ceramic housing the UNICO Manufacture self-winding chronograph. Each watch will be available in a limited edition of 200 pieces.
The Big Bang Integral Tourbillon High Jewellery is a unique piece made entirely from diamond. This piece marks the 30th unique piece of High Jewellery from the Maison. The goal was to surpass all limits and create a piece that goes beyond the initial expertise of watchmaking. Its automatic tourbillon calibre was fully designed and manufactured in-house; is set with 484 baguette-cut diamonds, totalling 31 carats. It features fully integrated aesthetics from the case to the strap, and 100% visible mechanics on the dial side thanks to the sapphire. This watch is a one-of-a-kind piece.
