BIG BANG INTEGRAL CERAMIC
ROLL OUT THE COLORS!
Just like with fashion, a total look is the in-thing on the wrist right now. Hublot rolls out the colors with three mono-block, monochrome timepieces which are ready and waiting to blend in with your style.
The Nyon-based watchmakers have an ever-growing passion for ceramic. And, not without good reason! This zirconium-based alloy, two to three times harder than steel, 30% lighter and wonderful to touch, boasts a host of assets. And, given Hublot’s mastery in creating it, this time round the firm invites us to discover three colorful interpretations. As such, the Big Bang Integral Ceramic is proposed in an incredibly-pure white, an intense dark blue and a slate-nuanced gray.
However, these references aren’t really newcomers. Last year, Hublot celebrated its 40th anniversary by unveiling a Big Bang Integral trio. As their name suggests, these chic and sporty pieces stand out with their strap which totally integrates the 42 mm-diameter case refashioned for the occasion. This perfectly-merged couple offers outstanding comfort. One of them also reigns supreme with its elements crafted in satin-brushed black ceramic. And, it’s this monochrome composition which we discover on these hued variations.
Hublot has kept the pared-down presentation of the openworked dial, free from Roman numerals. All time data, the large hour and minute hands and short-cycle time measurements continue to be driven by the HUB1280 caliber. This self-winding movement, equipped with a flyback chronograph, delivers a generous power reserve of 72 hours, i.e. 3 days.
