The Big Bang Unico Magic Sapphire brings together several of legends and innovations: an iconic watch, a Hublot movement, a historic signature and an acclaimed innovative material. Drawing on the mastery and expertise acquired in machining sapphire, it is pushing the boundaries even further by optimising the components while simplifying the construction of the case.
In 2016, Hublot heralded a new era in the high end watchmaking by launching Big Bang Unico Sapphire watch collection: A first in terms of the machining of sapphire that it made more ‘widespread’ by successfully shaping it for more than just very limited series. Capitalising on this unique savoir-faire, it cut 500 new Big Bang cases out of this material that is almost as hard as a diamond. A complex material, the most scratch-resistant and the most crystalline that exists, sculpted into the form of the iconic Big Bang case.
