Watches & WonderS 2021: HUBLOT

Following a successful series of launches during LVMH Watch Week 2021, Hublot is back to present its Watches & Wonders novelties.

Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire

The case of this new Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire has been reconstructed in its entirety to house the Automatic Tourbillon movement. The goal: to remove almost all of the visible screws, overhaul the general geometry of the case to integrate it with the sapphire bracelet, develop a new case profile to house the sapphire bracelet, and rework the bridges and main plates to give them the illusion of being suspended in space.

Hublot also developed inserts and attachments which were reduced to their simplest expression, to allow light through every component. The case is thus composed of no fewer than 37 components, five of which are made solely from sapphire.

The components appear to be literally suspended in space. Each gear train is not only penetrated by light coming in from the dial side and passing through the skeleton movement on the other side: now, and for the first time, light enters the heart of the Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire from all directions.

Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic

Yellow Magic is the new brightly coloured high-tech ceramic created by Hublot. Following the success of its red ceramic in 2018 it was only normal for the watchmaker to push the boundaries and expand its palette.

Available in a limited edition of 250 pieces, the solar power of its 42-mm case and its bezel shine in the light of this yellow ceramic. In an ultra-invigorating colour palette, the flange, indexes, minute and seconds counters, Arabic numerals and hands are all in this sunny yellow, to highlight the mechanism of the Unico HUB1280 manufacture movement and its column wheel, visible on the dial side through the sapphire crystal.

Big Bang Sang Bleu II

With these new grey, blue and white versions, the Big Bang Sang Bleu II displays a new temperament. In the grey ceramic version, the piece offers a modern look reminiscent of the great urban structures at the heart of 21st-century. The shades of grey that illumine the ceramic evoke steel, titanium and aluminium in turn, strongly accentuating the profoundly architectural design of the Big Bang Sang Bleu II.

Each of these new Big Bang Sang Bleu II will be available as a limited edition of 200 pieces. They all share a 45-mm case made entirely from high-tech ceramic, housing the UNICO Manufacture self-winding chronograph. Entirely developed in-house by Hublot’s engineers and watchmakers, comprising 330 components and equipped with a flyback function, this model offers a 3-day power reserve.

Big Bang Integral Tourbillon High Jewellery

The Big Bang Integral Tourbillon High Jewellery brings together in one piece everything that defines the identity and distinction of Hublot:  its automatic tourbillon calibre, which was fully designed and manufactured in-house; its spectacular architecture set with 484 baguette-cut diamonds, totalling 31 carats; its fully integrated aesthetics from the case to the strap; and its 100% visible mechanics on the dial side thanks to the sapphire.

The model presents a visual balance, and proportions that are accentuated by the invisible setting work for its 484 baguette-cut diamonds. Its distinctive three-mesh bracelet with sharp edges alone accounts for 20.5 carats of diamonds (304 baguette-cut diamonds).

As Always with Hublot there is more to come..
