Swiss watchmaker Hublot has once again pushed the boundaries in watchmaking, creating an innovative new timepiece with groundbreaking technology and material. After nearly three years of testing and development, the Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic SAXEM Yellow Neon watch is available in extremely limited quantities. Watch collectors worldwide will rejoice at the charismatic florescent watch that glows with style, functionality, and precision people have come to expect from watch giant Hublot.
Used initially for an Emerald Green color in the MP-11 watch, Hublot continues to explore SAXEM, an innovative and high-tech synthetic material. Traditionally used to create lasers and satellites, this material is particularly well-suited for watch manufacturing. For the first time, Hublot has been able to craft translucent SAXEM colors, like this yellow neon color, to create a striking aesthetic not found in other watchers. SAXEM, short for Sapphire Aluminum Oxide and Rare Earth Mineral, combines several materials like aluminum oxide, thulium, and holmium. The result creates an ultra-durable material with more extraordinary shaping ability than other standard cubic crystalline structured materials.
To contrast the brilliant SAXEM, the Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic SAXEM Yellow Neon watch features a crown, bezel, and six H-shaped screws crafted from blasted titanium. Powered by Hublot’s HUB6035 movement, the new Big Bang Tourbillon has a 72-hour power reserve and is water resistant to 30 meters. The movement is crafted using a micro-rotor, allowing an open-back display to show the movement.
The Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic SAXEM Yellow Neon watch is available in minimal quantities. Only 50 extraordinarily rare watches were created, with each timepiece priced at $211,000.
