Transparent, black, yellow, blue, red-Hublot has mastered the craftsmanship of sapphire making and processing, and equipped its case with a unique hue. With the new Big Bang Tourbillon self-winding orange sapphire, the brand once again won the world number one by adding new colors to its fully colored sapphire palette.
This unprecedented technical and aesthetic achievement is combined with a new tourbillon movement, which is not only equipped with automatic winding (a rare tourbillon), but also uses a new structure, with micro rotors and three sapphire bridges visible on the dial side. Limited to 50 pieces, a new fusion of boldness and transparency.
Orange sapphire, the world’s first
If in a certain field, Hublot’s unique “fusion art” is expressed in its bold and radiant form, it is definitely a cutting-edge material, especially artificial sapphire. Over the years, the brand (with its own metallurgical and materials laboratory) has released many outstanding watches, with sapphire cases and dials available in novel colors and transparent settings for complex mechanics, such as Big Bang Unico Sapphire (transparent), all black sapphire, Big Bang Unico red sapphire and blue sapphire, and the most recent Big Bang yellow sapphire spirit.
Today, Hublot continues to innovate through this extraordinary material, reinterpreting the Big Bang sapphire tourbillon with a new orange hue, which is the world’s first fully transparent sapphire. This is possible thanks to the combination of titanium and chromium in an ingenious manufacturing process. This amazing dynamic color breathes fresh air into the haute watchmaking industry and is perfectly integrated with Hublot’s excellent culture. The technical tone of six H-shaped titanium screws enhances the charm of the translucent bezel and case in the finely polished orange sapphire, which is a characteristic of the iconic replica Big Bang design.
A revolutionary case with an innovative movement. Hublot showcased its unparalleled watchmaking technology and the continuous development of tourbillon technology since 2007 by accommodating a brand new tourbillon movement in the center of the orange sapphire. The movement is completely designed and produced by the brand. Different from the traditional tourbillon movement equipped with manual winding device, this excellent movement has a power reserve of at least three days (72 hours) with its automatic winding system, so it is famous all over the world, which is very important for the wearer. Significant improvement. It is equipped with ceramic ball bearings and adopts Hublot’s latest technological advancements in its winding system. The manufacturer also reiterated its uniqueness by redesigning the overall structure of the movement so that the micro-rotor is visible from the dial side. This innovative layout not only brings additional technical challenges to the designer, but also brings new vitality to the aesthetics by enhancing the spectacular appearance and very modern design of the dial. The gimbal movement of the miniature tourbillon set at 12 o’clock corresponds to the rotation of the tourbillon, and the adjustment mechanism of the tourbillon is completely symmetrical at 6 o’clock. The grey 22-carat golden miniature tourbillon is eye-catching through the exquisite decoration (beveled edge, daylight brush and sandblasting) and the iconic Hublot cutout in precious metals.
Hublot replica also continues to pursue transparency by using more sapphires in the movement itself. The manufacturing movement of the Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Orange Sapphire is equipped with three sapphire bridges for the first time-a barrel bridge, an automatic bridge and a tourbillon hairpin. The hollowed and polished platinum highlights the lightweight effect of the skeleton work. The tourbillon cage at six o’clock rotates once a minute to compensate for the pull of the earth in the direction of the movement. Its pure geometric shape is unique, allowing you to get a glimpse of the mechanical heart of the model. The hands and the dial with luminous coating enhance the clarity of the open dial. The transparent orange rubber strap with embossed lining-with the patented Express One Click interchangeability system and titanium unfolding clasp-makes this limited edition product more cutting-edge.
For those who want to have technical style and courage in other future materials, Hublot will issue a limited edition of 100 Big Bang automatic tourbillon watches. The case and bezel are made of Texalium®. Texalium® is a proprietary lightweight , An ergonomic material that combines carbon fiber and aluminum. The brand also reaffirmed its unique mastery of high-tech ceramics with the Black Magic 100-piece limited edition made of black ceramics. So many feats are at the limit of possibility.
