BIG BANG UNICO YELLOW MAGIC
Since its inception 41 years ago, Hublot has always been a leader in innovation. In fact, it was the first brand to release a luxury timepiece on a rubber strap back in 1980. The brand continues its visionary path with its own Metallurgy & Materials lab on its premises, where constant research and development leads to new and exciting products. Such is the case with the Yellow Magic material used for this watch. Hublot is the first to succeed in creating a bright, vivid yellow ceramic, and showcases it in style with a yellow high-tech ceramic case and bezel. The patented material was years in the making. Just 250 pieces of this watch, powered by the brand’s own proprietary Unico self-winding chronograph flyback movement, will be made. $26,200.
BIG BANG INTEGRAL CERAMIC
Making a bold yet cohesive statement on the wrist, the new Big Bang Integral Ceramic watches, offered in white, gray and the navy blue shown here, marks the first time Hublot has created a fully integrated ceramic bracelet on the Big Bang ceramic case. In fact, the first link of the bracelet is actually fused with the 42mm case: no easy feat to accomplish. The proprietary material, developed in-house, is hypoallergenic, ultra-light in weight and is incredibly hard and scratch-resistant. The watch is powered by Hublot’s HUB1280 Unico movement that has been updated to include a thinner automatic winding system and boasts four new patented innovations including an oscillating seconds clutch and more. The skeletonized 354-par t movement offers flyback chronograph with column wheel system and 72 hours of power reserve. $23,100.
