Hublot - Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon

Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon

Following the blue and yellow sapphire, the barrel-shaped watch embodying all the spirit of Hublot features a carbon-fibre case with black or blue inclusions, housing a new tourbillon movement.

On the occasion of Baselworld 2019, Hublot unveils the Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon 42mm featuring a carbon-fibre case with black or blue inclusions. "The very essence of Hublot is fully represented in this Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon. This model demonstrates that we have authentic watchmaking substance, despire our young age, and that we invest considerably in research and development, as much for the movements as for the materials", said Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.

Immediately recognisable from all the other collections, the Spirit of Big Bang cultivates its difference while sporting all the codes of Hublot’s DNA, starting with this Art of Fusion, now a signature in terms of materials. For the first time in this collection, the barrel-shaped case is made of carbon-fibre integrating black or blue composites. In the same material, the bezel is held by 6 H-shaped titanium screws while the case back, also in carbon, surrounds a sapphire crystal.

Structured, airy and technical, the calibre powering the new Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon 42mm is a concentration of innovations and expertise. The most emblematic complication in fine watchmaking, the tourbillon — incorporating a mobile frame making one complete rotation per minute — offsets the force of terrestrial gravity for increased accuracy. Specifically developed for this barrel-shaped case, the HUB6020 movement reveals an hours and minutes dial off-centre at 3 o’clock, the tourbillon at 6 o’clock, and an indicator for the 5-day power reserve at 8 o’clock. The hand-winding can be performed via the large fluted crown.

For the first time, the “One-Click” fastening system, allowing the strap to be changed safely and quickly, makes its appearance on the Spirit of Big Bang collection. The two limited editions, in black carbon composite and blue carbon composite, with 100 models for each, come with a black structured rubber strap lined respectively in black or blue/black.

The brand

From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.
