HUBLOT LAUNCHES THE NEW BIG BANG INTEGRAL TIME
No-one was expecting it, so of course we did it: a Big Bang Integral that is more compact, vibrant and powerful than ever, at the same time as being more refined than any of its other timepieces. It has been a true exercise in watch design, retaining our aesthetic and technical grammar but in a totally new format for us. We pulled off the challenge, by creating a Big Bang Integral, which once again proves its versatility and modernity!
Three pieces, three hands, three materials, but just one diameter: 40 mm. This is a first for the Big Bang Integral. Never before has HUBLOT's iconic design been fitted into such a slim-fitting and sexy outfit.
Thinner than ever, perfectly adjusted in a case of yellow gold, titanium or 'All Black' ceramic, it lends a refined perspective to time. This new collection, simply named 'Time Only', refocuses on the essence of watchmaking: hours, minutes, seconds and the date, without losing any of the power of the watchmaker's codes. The true aesthetic signature of the Big Bang Integral, the integrated bracelet, returns to give the watch its strength.
This iconic three-link bracelet mirrors the sharp edges of the case, echoing the vibrant and powerful architecture of the middle. Each link is individually polished and satin-finished, chamfered and bevelled, providing either matt or glossy complex, alternating surfaces to reflect every spark of light. The new 40 mm case is particularly well suited to this integrated bracelet which makes each composition more profound and incisive. The new 'Time Only' Big Bang Integral is the epitome of HUBLOT, essential, intimate and powerful.
Simplicity is clearly the guiding principle when it comes to the movement: these three 'Time Only' versions have a sapphire crystal on the face and back, where the Big Bang's iconic oscillating weight is housed. Here you will find the perfectly adjusted compact calibre, manufactured by the watchmaker, in its new 40mm space which it fills entirely. Each surface is satin-finished to provide a matt finish on the dial for perfect legibility. The index, hands and date window of each version are finished in yellow gold, titanium or All Black ceramic.
The 'Time Only' Big Bang Integral in titanium and yellow gold join the collection. The 'All Black' version, like all the All Blacks crafted by the watchmaker, is limited to 250 pieces.
Founded in Switzerland in 1980, HUBLOT is defined by its innovation, which began with the highly original combination of gold and rubber. This "Art of Fusion" stems from the imagination of its visionary Chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, and has been driven forward by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe since 2012.
The release of the iconic, multi-award-winning Big Bang in 2005 paved the way for new flagship collections (Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang), with complications ranging from the simple to the highly sophisticated, establishing the extraordinary DNA of the Swiss watchmaking house and ensuring its impressive growth.
Keen to preserve its traditional and cutting-edge expertise, and guided by its philosophy to "Be First, Different and Unique", the Swiss watchmaker is consistently ahead of the curve, through its innovations in materials (scratch-resistant Magic Gold, ceramics in vibrant colours, sapphire), and the creation of Manufacture movements (Unico, Meca-10, Tourbillon).
HUBLOT is fully committed to creating a Haute Horlogerie brand with a visionary future: a future which is fused with the key events of our times (FIFA World CupTM, UEFA Champions League, UEFA EUROTM) and the finest ambassadors our era has to offer (Chiara Ferragni, Pelé, Kylian Mbappé, Usain Bolt, Novak Djokovic).
