In 2016, Hublot revolutionized sapphire usage in traditional horology by launching Big Bang Unico Sapphire. In order to realize this extra-ordinary mechanical timepiece, Hublot cut a sapphire case on an unprecedented scale, mastering a complex material, which is both ultra-resistant and totally "invisible" thanks to its transparency. Hublot has now fused sapphire and metals to create a Big Bang case in blue sapphire — marking the first time this colour sapphire has been used in watchmaking.
