HUBLOT

Concurrently with SIHH, Hublot hosted a private event in Geneva showcasing the first tourbillon added to their new generation Big Bang collection. The Big Bang Tourbillon Power Reserve Indicator is, needless to say, a sports watch; however, this timepiece houses a tourbillon. The rare circumstance of a sports watch featuring an important complication is demonstrated by only a handful of brands, such as Audemars Piguet, Hublot, and Richard Mille.


Hublot Returns with a Bang: The New Big Bang Tourbillon Power Reserve Indicator Watch


Concurrently with SIHH, Hublot hosted a private event in Geneva showcasing the first tourbillon added to their new generation Big Bang collection. The Big Bang Tourbillon Power Reserve Indicator is, needless to say, a sports watch; however, this timepiece houses a tourbillon. The rare circumstance of a sports watch featuring an important complication is demonstrated by only a handful of brands, such as Audemars Piguet, Hublot, and Richard Mille.


My point: The Big Bang Tourbillon Power Reserve Indicator is no run-of-the-mill Hublot catering to every Blake Griffin and Kevin Durant out there. This watch is something special.


The case is offered in two metals, King Gold and Titanium. King Gold is Hublot’s unique blend of red gold and platinum, creating a brilliant, coppery tinge. Furthermore, its 45-millimeter case diameter is easily justifiable, especially once factoring in the size of the tourbillon cage, which accounts for nearly 20 percent of the dial.


This piece is powered by Hublot’s in-house caliber HUB6016 hand-wound tourbillon skeleton movement. Situated at nine o’clock is a power reserve indicator, while a tourbillon rests, aligned with the Hublot logo, at six o’clock.


The strap affixed to this new Hublot is hand-stitched and composed of alligator and rubber; the triple deployant buckle is, like the case, offered in the two aforementioned metals.
