Hublot, the inventor of the Art of Fusion motto, introduced the latest collection of its iconic product line Big Bang, featuring an integrated bracelet.
The iconic product group Big Bang, which pioneered the rebirth of the famous brand and managed to stay on the agenda of the watch world for 15 years, expanded with a brand new collection. The new models introduced during the LVMH Group Dubai Watch Week 2020 event attracted great attention with their integrated bracelets, which is a first in the history of the product group.
The new collection includes a total of three versions: 451.NX.1170.NX (Titanium), 451.OX.1180.OX (King Gold), 451.CX.1140.CX (Black Ceramic). Those who want to experience the Big Bang Integral in stainless steel seem to return home empty-handed.
All three models come with a 42mm X 13.45mm measuring case, which can be accepted modest for the Big Bang Collection. Sapphire crystals with anti-reflective coating, are used on the front and back sides of the cases, which we are familiar with other models. The models are manufactured to withstand 100 meters of water pressure. In addition to the rubber-assisted winding crown and rectangular chronograph pushers, bezel screws designed in the form of the letter H also refer to the DNA of the model family.
The Hublot Big Bang Integral has a matt black dial. Instead of the large Arabic number indexes that we are accustomed to, the dial features baton markers and components finished in line with the overall color palette of each model. The monochrome color selection of the skeleton dial offers an industrial look with the matte black hour and minute scale.
All models are equipped with the manufacture Caliber HUB1280 automatic movement. The 43-jewels movement features hours, minutes and seconds as well as a date display and a 60-minute chronograph function. Beating at 4 Hz (28,800vph) frequency, the movement offers a 72-hour power reserve when fully wound.
The integrated bracelet that gives the new collection its name looks stylish and comfortable. For the bracelet, which we could not notice any flaw in terms of integration with the case, it is far from being unique design-wise. When we look at the bracelets in the Zenith Defy product group of the group brands, we see that the similarity between two products slightly exceeded the limits of inspiration.
Let us remind you that the black ceramic model is limited to 500 pieces.
