Hublot Rings In Summer With The Breezy Big Bang Unico Sky Blue
Equal parts bold and bright, the Swiss manufacture applies its coloured ceramic prowess to its quintessential model.
Evocative of sky and sea, the new hue is designed to symbolise new horizons and spark a desire for exploration.
The Swiss watch manufacture is no stranger to colour given its peerless work with ceramic, having released its first patented coloured ceramic timepiece — the Big Bang Unico Red Magic — in 2019. It’s since covered the full spectrum of the colour wheel, as well as some bejewelled Big Bang moments.
The new Hublot Big Bang Unico Sky Blue takes a largely monochromatic approach, both the 42mm ceramic case and the rubber strap bathed in the powdery blue shade with hints of white contributing to the sun-drenched effect. A combination of satin and polished finishes feature, with the striking shade coming courtesy of Hublot’s patented ceramic sintering process, which results in a high resistance to oxidisation and scratching.
At the heart of the Hublot Big Bang Unico Sky Blue sits the in-house HUB1280 calibre — an automatic chronograph movement that boasts a weekend-proof 72-hour power reserve. A skeleton dial showcases the mechanism in action, with the hands and indices clad in white while the small seconds sub-dial is clad in the same sky blue. The Swiss marque’s signature metal screws stand out against the sky blue bezel, creating visual cohesion by echoing the metallic hue of the movement within.
Designed for days by the sea, the summer-ready timepiece comes with a white Velcro strap, in addition to the standard sky blue rubber version equipped with a titanium deployant buckle.
Limited to 200 pieces and priced at approx. $37,530, the Unico Big Bang Sky Blue is available now through the Hublot website and select boutiques.
