This new limited series with its large power reserve is a concentration of the spirit of the watchmaker from Nyon. The movement and the choice of materials contribute to this timepiece’s powerful design.
Once again, the art of fusion so dear to Hublot brilliantly comes to life with the Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon Carbon Blue. This timepiece thus combines mechanical excellence and sophisticated esthetics obtained through the use of high-tech materials, a colored carbon fiber in this case. The 42-mm tonneau-shaped case is dressed in unique blue and black motifs. It protects the striking architecture of the movement, highlighted by the total absence of a dial. The straight lines and the curves of the movement’s components come together to create a living sculpture upon which the hour and minute hands come to life on an off-centered disc at 3 o’clock. A power reserve indicator at 8 o’clock balances out the composition. At 6 o’clock, the regulating organ magnifies the whole, making a complete rotation on itself in its cage in one minute.
For the first time, the Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon Carbon Blue also has the One-Click quick release system that lets you easily change the watchband supplied, which is made of structured blue-lined rubber with a titanium and ceramic folding buckle.
