Hublot delivers intense punches of colours with its new quartet of Big Bang timepieces made from ceramic.
The Big Bang Integral Ceramic collection is an extension of the series that previously featured pieces in white, blue and grey. The mono-hued timepieces are intensely shaded entirely in the same coloured ceramic, from case and crown to bezel and bracelet.
A classic Hublot design, the Big Bang has seen various expressions over the years. The monobloc of bright hues proves to be a timely trend as watch lovers seek to inject more vibrancy into their collections.
The Big Bang Integral Ceramic case connects with an integrated bracelet that tapers to the wrist for enhanced comfort. At 42 mm, the case is a bold statement that houses an in-house automatic movement with 72 hours of power reserve.
The calibre powers the hour, minute, and small second hands, along with the 60-minute counter, positioned at the three o’clock position next to the crown. The indices, hour markers, hands, and subdial are all finished in the same tone as the watch and bracelet to further solidify the monochromatic effect.
These functions are displayed across a skeleonised dial that showcases the intricate workings of the movement; the sapphire crystal caseback future reveals the inner beauty of the mechanism.
Riding on the success of the first trio of Big Bang Integral Ceramics, Hublot unveils four new colourways to the series. Each of the four monochromatic designs– sand beige, blue indigo, sky blue, and jungle green, is available in limited numbered editions of 250 pieces.
These colourful designs nod to Hublot’s daring DNA and reflect the versatility and playfulness of the Big Bang collection.
