To evoke the waves of the ocean that shimmer turquoise, and the sky in the summer, Hublot creates the Big Bang Unico Summer.
The 42-mm case of the watch is made of anodized satin-finished and polished aluminum, a modern, lightweight-colored material. This technical feat creates a uniform turquoise blue color.
What I love most when travelling is the amazement of the return, wrote Stendhal. This enchantment of the journey that we bring back with us transforms us a little, for the better… And even if daily life has not really changed on our return, our eyes being open to other horizons is enough to lend it new colour. Right from its beginnings, Hublot has adopted a future-focussed approach to watchmaking, sparking trends through the many patents it has filed for its innovations. The Big Bang Unico Summer embodies the beauty of our summer experiences. We wanted to give you another shade for this year, to let you relive these magic moments any time you want. – Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO
The Big Bang Unico Summer features a unique turquoise blue. To color the case and its components in this special pastel shade, Hublot’s specialists used anodization. This process ensures remarkable longevity and protects the case from scratches and impacts. This lightweight timepiece, with its 42-mm diameter, is designed to suit every wrist.
The watch is powered by the UNICO manufacture calibre (HUB1280) that features a 72-hour power reserve, and an oscillating seconds clutch, a chronograph friction system with ball-bearing adjustment, and a column wheel that can be viewed through its dial. The hands are covered in luminescent white and turquoise and they shimmer as they move around the dial. The movement is just 6.75 mm thick, allowing for a thinner case measuring just 14.5 mm.
The patented interchangeable “One Click” attachment system, allows the owner of the Big Bang Unico Summer to quickly switch its straps: one Velcro strap with matching stitching and one natural rubber strap. The sports buckle (for the Velcro strap), and the decorative plate on the deployant clasp (for the rubber strap), are also made from turquoise anodized aluminum with the HUBLOT logo engraved and lacquered in brilliant white.
Hublot releases only 200 of these unisex timepieces. They are initially available on the e-commerce site and in the Mediterranean boutiques in Capri, Forte dei Marmi, Mykonos, Ibiza, Bodrum, Saint-Tropez and Monaco.
