Big Bang Unico Sapphire, ambition and innovation

Once again, Hublot is adding its innovation and expertise with materials to the history of watchmaking firsts. Hublot has developed the manufacturing of unique and very hard materials, such as Magic Gold, the world's only scratch-resistant gold. Now in 2016, Hublot has created 500 Big Bang Unico Sapphire models, without losing sapphire's unique and rare character.

Sapphire -an extremely difficult material to machine- has until now been reserved for one-of-a-kind pieces or very private collections. After its ambitious MP05 "LaFerrari" Sapphire project, Hublot is capitalising on the challenge that it has just met and asserting its expertise in sapphire cutting by interpreting it in a series of 500 pieces. This is a first. It is a collection of absolute transparency that consecrates the acclaimed architecture of the Big Bang model and the performances of the brand's Unico movement.
