Following the successful launch of the very first Spirit of Big Bang last year, Hublot is launching the SPIRIT OF BIG BANG "ALL BLACK" in 2015. Totally black, totally matt and totally faithful to Hublot's signature concept, the Spirit of Big Bang is Hublot's first All Black watch with a tonneau case.
It is the fusion of the unique All Black concept invented by Hublot with the famous Spirit of Big Bang watch with a tonneau case, now available in an All Black version, in a limited edition of only 500 numbered pieces, as is always the case for Hublot's All Black series.
Given the full Hublot makeover in terms of its architecture and finishes, this automatic skeleton movement with a 50-hour power reserve can be appreciated thanks to its sapphire dial which reveals the full beauty of the skeleton mechanism including its date disc. It also provides greater assurance against counterfeiting. The watch features a date window positioned at 4.30, a central chrono seconds hand and three timers at 9 o'clock (seconds), 3 o'clock (30 minutes) and a small one at 6 o'clock (hours); the whole piece is completed by an alligator strap stitched onto black rubber for the ultimate in comfort and flexibility. The watch is water resistant to 100 metres.
