With early unveilings of models in Dubai and New York, watchmaker Hublot promises intriguing options for serious fans of the iconic Big Bang line.
Hublot continues its reputation as the master of fusion—and of color—with this red ceramic iteration of the 45 mm Big Bang MP-11 (limited to 100 pieces, $86,000). The color theme befits this bold technical watch: The visible HUB9011 movement features seven barrels under an elevated portion of the crystal that deliver a whopping 14 days of power reserve. Add in state-of-the-art rubber and titanium details and you have a modern visual and technical marvel all in one.
The follow-up to Hublot’s collaboration with international tattoo sensation Sang Bleu features even more of an inkworthy dose of artist Maxime Plescia-Buchi’s iconic work. The new Big Bang Sang Bleu II (limited to 200 pieces, $25,200) mimics the signature color of the studio’s preferred ink shade, enhancing the in-house Unico movement and HUB1240.MXM chronograph function. Especially in this clean titanium version, the art speaks for itself.
A new golf-course-green edition joins the fairway of Hublot’s unique Big Bang Unico Golf watches ($32,500). White and blue executions are already available and favored by pros like Dustin Johnson and Justin Rose. Powered by a HUB1580 movement with special pushers and apertures that let you log your score and strokes as you play, the case itself is rendered in cutting-edge Texalium, a blend of carbon fiber and aluminum. And the design of the strap and integration of the case mimic the ubiquitous golf glove, making it an essential and stylish addition to your course gear.
While the line between men’s and ladies’ watches is blurred, Hublot shares some new colorful executions of the Sang Bleu tattoo collaboration timepieces in 39 mm cases (steel or King Gold) with shades that may hold more appeal for women. In addition, these timepieces are offered in diamond settings (48 gems total) and include the brand’s one-click band-changing system to mix and match colors and vibes. This pinkish-hued version in steel ($16,700) is particularly alluring.
