Hublot: Return to the Origins of Yellow Gold

Hublot: Return to the Origins of Yellow Gold

Hublot presents six models: Classic Fusion, Big Bang and Spirit of Big Bang. Made entirely from yellow gold, these models pay tribute to the brand's preferred material, which saw a resurgence around 40 years ago.

The new Hublot pieces exclusively unveiled at LVMH Watch Week recapture the original essence of the manufacture: the fusion of gold and rubber in a sporty chic aesthetic, at a time when, over 40 years ago, the concept of the sport chic watch didn’t even exist.
Each of these six pieces represents a little piece of the manufacture’s history and the way in which it is moving forward. A clear line between what Hublot was, is and will be. Charting 40 years of history, expertise, creativity, total technical mastery and the foundations of a legend which, 40 years ago, had just one model: the Classic Original of 1980.

Today, each piece marks a chapter in the great Hublot adventure: the birth of the Big Bang, the Classic Fusion, the Spirit of Big Bang, the art of stone setting, skeleton work and the creation of the first manufacture movements, among others. In their own individual way, these six pieces fuse the aesthetic and technical elements of Hublot’s signature. Yet always with a common denominator: yellow gold and black.

Classic Fusion Chronograph

It finds its most essential expression in the Classic Fusion Chronograph. This is the first time it has been produced in yellow gold in a diameter of 42 mm. A clean, understated, stylish, self-winding bicompax: the first, original and unique.

Big Bang Integral

It is followed closely by the Big Bang Integral, made entirely from yellow gold (case, bezel and bracelet). This version, designed from a single block of solid gold, is also available fully set with diamonds, alongside the ultimate Haute Joaillerie version.

Big Bang Unico

This iconic trio is completed by the latest generation of Hublot’s contemporary collections: the one and only Big Bang Unico, and the sculptural Spirit of Big Bang. The Big Bang is the first to feature a 42 mm case entirely in yellow gold with a rubber strap and Unico movement. It is the ultimate embodiment of Hublot’s 100% manufacture ethos, and features a calibre with a 3-day power reserve and an exterior that fuses yellow gold, deep black, skeleton work, performance and power.

Spirit of Big Bang

And finally, the Spirit of Big Bang. Here the emphasis is on the design, which takes the form of an exquisite tonneau with alternating straight lines and curves, featuring polished and satin-finished surfaces of brilliant yellow gold which create a spectacular dance of light. In a 42 mm version with skeleton movement, it shares its One Click interchangeable strap system with the Big Bang and is still powered by the calibre HUB4700, one of the most accurate movements available with a rate of 5 Hz (36,000 vib/h).
