Hublot presents four new Big Bang Integrated Ceramic models, each monobloc, monomaterial, and monochrome. Its monobloc architecture means its bracelet comes integrated into the case. Its monomaterial is made from ceramic. And the four watches are bathed in their four monochrome colourways –blue indigo, sky blue, sand beige and jungle green.
In 2020 – 15 years after its launch – the Big Bang was first launched in a version with an integrated bracelet. Its strong aesthetic gave the timepiece clearly defined lines, fully integrated in ceramic, with the exception of the composite lugs, pushers and crown over-moulded with rubber.
Thanks to this innovation, Hublot has pushed the boundaries of ceramic. It has increased the hardness and scratch resistance of this material and enhanced the intensity of its colour, while retaining its lightness. These qualities, along with its low thermal conductivity and its hypoallergenic properties, make the watch a delight to wear.
With the new Hublot ceramic, the Big Bang Integrated is in its element, bringing four new monochrome shades to the collection. Each is available in a limited edition of 250 pieces. The four colourways represent the elements of water, earth and wood.
The indigo blue draws inspiration from the Majorelle Garden and the streets of Chefchaouen in Morocco. The sky blue takes us to the Blue City of Jodhpur in Rajasthan, and the sky blue from the South Seas. The sand beige has its roots in the deserts, and from the beaches of the Caribbean. The jungle green takes us to the tropical forests.
The watch’s 42-mm case houses the HUB1280 calibre featuring a slimmer design, new architecture, easier assembly and enhanced legibility and functionality. The UNICO V2 manufacture movement has a power reserve of 72-hours. The watch’s integrated bracelet features three bevelled and chamfered links with polished and satin-finished surfaces. The unique design of the Big Bang Integrated Ceramic is set off to stunning effect by these colours and finishes.
