Ten years after the launch of the All Black concept, and to mark the anniversary of this current "must-have" trend, Hublot is disrupting the natural order. It uses transparency to foster a new connection between the visible and invisible. The exterior of the Big Bang watch is now invisible, so that the construction and movement of the timepiece are now fully observable. Through a fusion of materials, textures and finishes, Hublot has used the Big Bang Unico Sapphire All Black to reinterpret the iconic all black style.
Following the exclusive presentation a few weeks ago of the Big Bang Unico Sapphire – a timepiece entirely made from sapphire which required months of development and multi-million investments – Hublot is doing it all again by presenting a piece so bold it is verging on impertinent. It is combining opposites – the visible and the invisible – in a piece which expresses the very essence of its All Black concept.
