Swiss luxury watch manufacture Hublot is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its iconic Big Bang model by revisiting and bringing a spirit of innovation to one of its most practical complications – the alarm clock. Integrating one of the oldest complications – the alarm clock function preceded even the advent of hands – the Big Bang Alarm Repeater is the fusion of two functional complications: a mechanical alarm clock and a second time zone.
The alarm clock - a complication which belongs to the chiming clock category – is indexed on the reference time. At 1 o'clock, a triangular window gradually shows the day/night indicator for the local time. At 5 o'clock, a 24-hour counter with two hands shows the programmed alarm time; while an "on off" indicator shows the alarm status at 6 o'clock. At 7 o'clock, the hammer visible under the sapphire is coated with SuperLuminova™ so it can be seen at night. The second time zone has a 24 -hour display at 11 o'clock. The alarm clock chimes for around 16 seconds as a steel hammer strikes a gong.
