ENTER A NEW DIMENSION
A true concentration of the brand’s know-how and spirit. These appealing compact novelties combine technical performance with a modern sporty chic aesthetic.
Less is more? In an effort to corroborate the expression of German architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886-1969), Hublot demonstrates that displaying essential time information can be enough to create attractive watches. Thus, after the 42mm chronographs, the manufacturer is expanding its range with an evolution to the Big Bang Integral collection finished with a new format. Henceforth, this line of watches features a case 40mm in diameter, water-resistant to a depth of 100 meters, that is also notable for its relative thinness, 9.25mm thick. In addition to their size, these Time Only models stand out for their openworked dial on which the hour and minute hands, the second hand, and a date at 6 o’clock move in a staged display giving pride of place to the mechanics.
The core data is powered by a high-performance self-winding mechanism. The MHUB1710 caliber, assembled with 185 components, delivers 50 hours of power reserve. The sapphire back of the case reveals the stylized oscillating weight allowing another view of its architecture. Three versions of the Big Bang Integral Time Only are currently available. A limited edition of 250 examples, All Black, combines a case with an integrated black ceramic wristband. The 18K yellow gold and titanium versions are being added to the collection. All of them have what it takes to become an essential part of the current sport chic trend.
