Not everything spins round in the watchmaking world. Hublot injected its founding spirit into the elegant “barrel” watches of its Spirit of Big Bang collection unveiled in 2014. And this year, with The Shaped Collection, its Manufacture proves that the brand’s geometry can be altered without erasing its iconic DNA. The range consists of five Square Bang Unico models, each with same square 42mm case, water-resistant to a depth of 100 metres. Two of the models are machined from sold titanium or King Gold respectively. Two combine these materials with a black ceramic bezel, while all are fitted with a black rubber strap that can be easily changed thanks to the convenient One Click release system, and replaced with novel leather straps.
The optimized ergonomics fit in with the aesthetics of the Square Bang Unico. The chronograph push buttons, ideally integrated into the case middle, facilitate the measurement of time, which is easily readable in the bicompax display. The roundness of the calibre adds depth to the tiered structure of the openwork dial, which provides a fascinating dive into the inner workings of the UNICO HUB1280. This self-winding movement created from 354 components is not only precise, but also efficient, with an impressive 72-hour power reserve. The watchmaker from Nyon channels its expertise into a striking limited edition of 250 Square Bang Unico All black timepieces. The case, bezel, push buttons, strap, base plate and indices are monotone throughout, creating a powerful look. By choosing the Square Bang Unico, not only do you make a personal statement, you also assert your style!
