Hublot Spirit of Big Bang All Black

This winter season welcomes new Spirit of Big Bang All Black models in lovely colours: Red, orange, yellow or green.

The barrel-shaped silhouette of these models embodies all the codes of the Big Bang—its design, 6 H-shaped screws crossing the bezel, the lugs on both sides of the case, the two attachments of the strap, the Hublot hands and the stick indexes, the screwed crown over moulded with rubber—its unique case construction following the astute ‘sandwich’ principle—and its fusion of materials.
The Spirit of Big Bang All Black blends opposites, the visible and the invisible, in a piece that represents the very essence of its All Black concept.
In a micro-blasted black ceramic and black PVD case, colour marks the time from the indexes to the hands—minutes at 3 o’clock, hours at 6 o’clock and seconds at 9 o’clock—passing by the date at four-thirty, and dresses the strap in alligator leather sewn onto natural rubber. Created in 4 versions—red, orange, green or yellow—it is available exclusively at Hublot Boutiques.
For its motorisation, the Spirit of Big Bang All Black is equipped with the HUB4700 automatic winding skeleton movement. An entirely ‘Hublotised’ motor in its architecture and its finishing, which conserves the major assets of the mythical basic movement from which it comes—the Zenith El Primero calibre—namely the most precise chronograph in the world.
