Swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot is celebrating a major milestone this year as its iconic Big Bang collection turns eighteen. Since its debut in 2005, the Big Bang has captured the hearts of watch enthusiasts worldwide, establishing its unique identity and amassing a dedicated community of fans and collectors.
To commemorate this occasion, Hublot has unveiled the Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold, a timepiece that exemplifies the brand’s commitment to surprise, invent, and innovate. This latest addition to the Big Bang family showcases a return to the collection’s core elements while incorporating novel advancements.
The instantly recognizable 44mm case, with its sandwich construction and large pushers, sets the stage for the powerful and disruptive aesthetic of the Big Bang. The skeleton dial reveals the self-winding UNICO 2 chronograph movement, a technical marvel that fuels the watch’s precision and performance.
Hublot’s mastery is further exemplified by the use of Magic Gold—a proprietary alloy that combines 24-carat gold with ceramic, creating a scratchproof and unalterable material. With a hardness surpassing traditional gold and even hardened steel, Magic Gold is exclusive to Hublot and guarantees enduring elegance.
The limited edition Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold features the alloy on both the case and bezel, contrasting dramatically with black titanium components and a rubber strap. This striking juxtaposition emphasizes the timeless appeal and innovative nature of the watch.
Driving the watch is the new UNICO 2 manufacture movement (HUB 1280), which offers improved precision, a power reserve of 72 hours, and a 2-year warranty (extendable to 3 years with registration). Notably, the UNICO 2 incorporates a smoother winding system and an enhanced clutch mechanism, showcasing Hublot’s dedication to technical excellence.
With its blend of innovation, style, and technical accomplishment, the Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold is a testament to the brand’s unwavering commitment to pushing boundaries and captivating the modern man. Hublot continues to prove why it remains a leader in the world of horology, delighting enthusiasts with exceptional timepieces that defy expectations. Only 200 Full Magic Gold versions of the Big Bang have been manufactured by Hublot for $38,800, so act quickly!
