Hublot is launching the new Big Bang UNICO model designed in collaboration with the Italian brand, Italia Independent. This collaboration has created a case featuring a brand new material, Texalium®, whose design is exclusive to the Swiss watchmaking brand.
By now well accustomed to carbon fibre cases, Hublot wanted to go even further in its search for this material, to achieve even more colour variations. Texalium® is unique in that it is aluminium-coated carbon fibre; the great advantage of this is that it can be designed in different colours and has a remarkable brilliance, with all the lightness of carbon fibre.
