Big Bang Tantalum

"Big Bang" the fated name for a watch whose powerful statement glorifies the ultimate watchmaking brand with the singular and timeless design: HUBLOT.

"Big Bang" is the first watch to feature lateral recognition. The sides of the "Big Bang" make it stand apart from other timekeepers due to two aspects. Firstly, the amazing natural black rubber Hublot strap that has symbolised the brand ever since its creation appears to pass directly through the body of the watch due to the clever addition of a Kevlar insert, and secondly, the multi-layered construction of its case that allows a play on materials.

Big Bang offers an exclusive "Limited Edition" in 18K red gold with Tantalum bezel and Black Dial produced in "250 pieces" and another version with Ruthenium dial also in "250 pieces".

"Big Bang" is the quintessential key to the new Hublot Fusion concept. A "Big Bang" of grandiose proportions conceals the Hublot's timeless sportiness and elegance so worthy of admiration. The case has been enlarged to 44.5 mm, the angles are sharper and the play of superimposed layers around the lugs rests on the brand's 4 mainstays: Swiss Watch making Tradition, the Visionary Art of Watch making, the Fusion of materials and state-of-the-art technology, and Aesthetic innovation.


On the technical side, "Big Bang" houses the new HUB44 mechanical chronograph movement with automatic winding mechanism, especially developed for Hublot by La Joux-Perret, visible through a transparent back. The watch's components include satin-finish bridges with chamfered edges, black PVD screws and an open worked oscillating weight sporting the Hublot colour scheme, made entirely of Tungsten and given a dimpled finish, also treated in black PVD. To complete the fusion of unusual materials, Hublot has added a dial in stamped carbon and an enlarged bezel in ceramic now adorned with 6 sunken screws, polished and blocked with 'H'-shaped slots.

To crown this bold visual statement, a double-face anti-reflection crystal underlines the highly contemporary appearance, while the crown and rectangular heads of the push-pieces have natural black rubber inserts thoroughly in keeping with the "Big Bang" concept.

Another major innovation of the Hublot "Big Bang" is the new Hublot deployant clasp and rubber strap, now made adjustable to adapt instantly to different wrist sizes, with no loss of the timekeeper's essential comfort or ultra-functionality.
