Following its ambitious MP05 LaFerrari Sapphire timepiece, Swiss watchmaker Hublot introduced the Big Bang Unico Sapphire automatic flyback chronograph ahead of its official debut next month at Baselworld. Housed in a 45mm case made from polished sapphire crystal, the only components that aren’t sapphire are the screws, the crown, the strap-release system and the transparent structured lined strap. The skeletonized dial is made of transparent resin and features the automatic Unico HUB1242 flyback chronograph movement with column wheel.
“Through the Art of Fusion, Hublot reveals all. A transparent case that reveals the soul of the watch– the Unico movement and an absolute transparency extending to the strap, which has become invisible. Beyond the symbolism and the play on words, the Big Bang is laying itself bare. It has nothing to hide and everything to show,” says Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.
Priced at $57,900 the Hublot Big Bang UNICO Sapphire is available as a 500-piece limited edition.
