As part of the 2021 LVMH Watch Week Hublot is presenting its novelties. Building on their DNA and their will to always go beyond what has already be done, the brand is offering and aggressive line-up that will satisfy Hublotistas and watch enthusiasts alike.
We put together some of our favorite releases and as always with Hublot there is always more to come.
BIG BANG TOURBILLON AUTOMATIC ORANGE SAPPHIRE
If there’s one area where Hublot’s own “Art of Fusion” is expressed in all its boldness and radiance, it’s definitely that of cutting-edge materials, particularly manufactured sapphire. Hublot continues to innovate with this extraordinary material by reinterpreting the Big Bang Sapphire Tourbillon in an entirely new orange shade – a world first for a through-tinted sapphire – achieved thanks to the incorporation of titanium and chromium in a skilful manufacturing process. This 45mm watch houses the manufacture’s automatic tourbillon movement and definitely shows that Hublot is always pushing the limits.
BIG BANG MP-11 MAGIC GOLD & BLUE SAPPHIRE
Hublot reasserts its unrivalled expertise in cutting-edge materials by housing its MP-11 manufacture calibre in two new exclusive cases, showcasing its scratch-resistant Magic Gold alloy and the transparency of its high-tech synthesis technology Blue Sapphire. The brand is offering enthusiasts two new versions of its Big Bang MP-11 watch, an instrument with a spectacular look which reveals its seven in-line barrels – which guarantee an unrivalled power reserve of 14 days – through the open dial.
SPIRIT OF BIG BANG TOURBILLON 5-DAY POWER RESERVE CARBON WHITE
With the Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon 5-day Power Reserve Carbon White, Hublot combines black with white, proving opposites attract. The 42-mm case, case back and bezel are crafted from carbon fibre featuring white composite inclusions. These white inclusions are formed of glass microfibres created as a non-woven fabric (NWF), used mainly to improve the breaking strength of composites: This NWF is then co-impregnated with the carbon fibres using tinted epoxy resin when the composite preforms are created in a special mould.
Released in a limited edition of 100 pieces, the Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon 5-day Power Reserve Carbon White plays with contrasts and transparency with a sapphire case back and dial which reveal the ultra-aesthetic architecture of the HUB6020 manufacture movement.
BIG BANG UNICO INTEGRAL CERAMIC
Following on from its black ceramic, Hublot has launched its BIG BANG INTEGRAL in three new ceramic colours: white, navy blue and grey, all with built-in scratch-resistance, durability and hypoallergenic properties. Its monobloc architecture – an integrated bracelet on which the first link is fused with the case – affirms Hublot’s integral single-colour, single-material style. The Big Bang Integral can be distinguished from the other Big Bang models by its fully integrated bracelet, which is fused with the 42-mm case. Launched in 2020, this represents a historic first for the 15-year-old Big Bang.
CLASSIC FUSION ORLINSKI
The Classic Fusion Orlinski 40mm now comes in a monochrome mode in two limited editions entirely clad in ceramic, with the exception of the strap and the crown. In terms of colorimetry, the flashy blue and gloss black are reminiscent of the colour codes used in the artist’s XXL bestiary. In terms of size, these two monochrome models, each released in a run of 200 pieces, keep the 40 mm diameter proportions of their alter ego, beat to the rhythm of an automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve and are worn on a soft rubber strap.
