Hublot Unveils Baby Blue Big Bang
The Big Bang Unico 45 Sky Blue could be the perfect summer watch.
Alright, yes, summer is still a fair way off here, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t, like Hublot, look to colourful times ahead.
Following on from the “Millennial Pink” Big Bang Chronograph, the Swiss watchmaker has unveiled the Big Bang Unico Sky Blue
With coloured ceramic Hublot’s focus since its introduction in 2019, the 45mm ceramic case of the Sky Blue showcases the brand’s technical knowledge of the material with its powdered baby blue hue.
Finished in a mix of brushed and polished surfaces, the case is layered around a white ceramic central case for a coastal contrast pointing, out the intricacies built into the geometric, modern design.
At 45mm and 16.3mm thick, any murmurs of the piece being made ‘dainty’ by the cool colourway are quickly dashed. The chunky aesthetic is further supported by the bare steel components visible through the watches skeleton dial.
Don’t let the summery light blue distract you from the timepiece’s technical ability. The watch powered by the in-house HUV1242 Unico automatic chronograph movement – a workhorse found in 45mm Big Bang models in recent years. The end result is the enviable combination of a column wheel and double clutch system giving the piece a 72-hour power reserve accompanied 100m of water resistance.
Hublot offers the piece with both a white Velcro fabric strap and a coordinating blue rubber strap with white trim and is limited to 100 units.
Approx. $30,100; Hublot.com
