Hublot Big Bang Unico Bracelet

The iconic Big Bang from Hublot is now available with an interchangeable metal bracelet. It blends seamlessly with the case and its attachments.
A beautiful new piece to celebrate its 10th anniversary, this model evolved in 3 stages. In 2005, Hublot launched its first BIG BANG model, a stylish, sporty chronograph with a new, original case design enabling a fusion of materials. This brand new concept resulted in an iconic watch whose aesthetic and technical innovations made watchmaking history. In 2013, the original BIG BANG was modified to house the proprietary UNICO movement, a column wheel chronograph with double clutch visible on the dial side - unique in the industry. Its design changed. The screws, push-buttons, crown, indices, numerals and counters underwent both a technical and aesthetic redesign. Playing on the themes of interchangeability and adaptability, the BIG BANG UNICO was also equipped with a new, unique "One click" bracelet attachment system allowing the bracelet to be switched extremely quickly and easily while guaranteeing optimal security. In 2015, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Big Bang, Hublot has added the final touch. Following redesigns for the movement and case middle, attention turned to the bracelet.
Blending seamlessly with the case, the metal bracelet extends the profile of both case and attachments. Much work went into perfecting the beauty of this integration system.
Its technical architecture reflects the sandwich type construction of the case, visually extending its composite effect. The expert in fusing materials, Hublot has created a bracelet with a structure in titanium or King Gold, featuring a centre link in ceramic, and rubber details on the case back and the edges of the bracelet.
Viewed from the front, it is the fusion of titanium and ceramic that captures the eye, with the bracelet profile emphasising the rubber - a material characteristic of the Brand.
Available in 4 versions, the new bracelet features the ingenious interchangeable system and a triple deployant buckle.
