Have you seen the (Limited Edition) Hublot Big Bang Unico Sapphire?
Have you seen it yet? The geniuses over at Hublot have released a very limited edition (500 pieces to be exact) watch to their reputable line of luxury watches and it’s crazy! This watch is rare, you will be lucky to find one, but if you do, you will be in possession of a watch which is cut straight from sapphire, without losing sapphire’s unique and rare character. Once again, Hublot is adding its innovation and expertise with materials to the history of watchmaking firsts. By transforming the ‘savoir-faire,’ Hublot has developed the manufacturing of unique and very hard materials, such as Magic Gold, the world’s only scratch-resistant gold.
Now in 2016, Hublot has created 500 Big Bang Unico Sapphire models cut straight from sapphire, without losing sapphire’s unique and rare character. A minimalist style, a very light timepiece, an inevitable new trend. Hublot, the art of mechanical watchmaking laid completely bare.
The case middle, bezel and back of the Big Bang Unico Sapphire are cut from blocks of sapphire, a material which is almost as hard and scratch-resistant as diamond (9 on the Mohs scale as opposed to 10 for diamond). Hublot has called on the expertise of a Swiss specialist as part of an exclusive partnership to develop the unique material.
Only a few pieces forming the spine of the watch are made from titanium: the screws, the crown, which is over-molded with silicon, and the deployment buckle. Its skeleton dial, made from transparent resin, reveals all the gears of the proprietary Unico HUB1242 movement and its finishes. Complementing its ethereal silhouette, its strap – transparent – is invisible so that the skin can be seen through it. Available as a 500-piece limited edition, the Big Bang Unico Sapphire is water-resistant to 50 metres.
This rare timepiece comes with Transparent Structured Lined Straps which look fantastic along with a secure and sturdy Titanium Deployant Buckle Clasp. You can see more about this watch on the Hublot Website, check it out by clicking here.
