Hublot Big Bang
Wristwatch range by Hublot
This chronograph has been designed by the watch visionary Jean-Claude Biver and was published on the market in April 2004. It won prizes right away in watch and design competitions and caught the attention of the audience. With it the message of "fusion" is risen to a cult. With the Big Bang, Hublot skillfully merges all kinds of materials: Kevlar®, carbon, ceramic, magnesium, tungsten, stainless steel, gold and, of course also here, as with the original Hublot models, rubber. A striking feature of the design is once again, as in the first Hublot models designed by Carlo Crocco, the band: by inserting a layer of Kevlar® into the watch case the impression is attained as if the bracelet runs smoothly through it.
The watch is available in different sizes: 44 mm (Standard), 41 mm and 38 mm. In addition, as a diver model, "Big Bang King" in the oversized 48 mm.
