The 2015 is the 10th anniversary of Hublotâ€™s iconic model, Hublot Big Bang. The bold shaped watch is instantly recognisable, and has been so phenomenally successful that it now lays serious claim to being considered an icon of not just modern watch design, but watch design immemorial. Given the brandâ€™s meteoric rise under the leadership of Jean Claude Biver it might be surprising to know that Hublot has quite a long history â€“ being founded in 1980 by Italian Carlo Crocco. What might be even more surprising is that many elements that are synonymous with the Big Bang exist on the original model from 1980. The hooded lugs with exposed screws, the rubber strap and the screwed down bezel which, like other popular â€™70s and â€™80s designs is based on a shipâ€™s porthole. In fact the name Hublot comes from the French word for porthole.
The story of modern Hublot begins in 2005 when the revitalised brand launched the Big Bang at Baselworld. It retained the spirit of fusion explored in Croccoâ€™s original designs, but supersized them. It captured the spirit of the times, and the unconventional watch design had a sensational impact. With the Big Bang, Hublot created a new universe. True to the same concept as the first Hublot 25 years prior, it was a combination of unusual materials presented in a bold way. Very recognizable as a Hublotâ€”yet at the same time refreshingly differentâ€”the concept of evolution through revolution materialized. The niche brand was thrust into the spotlight with the Big Bang, awarded the prize for Best Design at the prestigious Grand Prix dâ€™Horlogerie de GenÃ¨veâ€”and their orders tripled.

On the Hublot Big Bang 38mm, the designers of Hublot Watches have created luxury timepieces with unusual gems such as tsavorite, spinel and pink sapphire. Tsavorite resembles emerald but is harder and less likely to crack. Spinel looks like ruby and was once thought to be the same stone, but spinels can be more valuable than rubies. Spinels occupy an honored place in the British crown jewels and other fabulous jewel collections. While most sapphires are blue, the stone can also occur in orange and pink. Of course, some of these luxury timepieces have diamonds, the perennial favorite. More Replica Hublot Big Bang 38mm Watches.

Replica Hublot Big Bang Unico
Hublot Big Bang Unico is one of Hublotâ€™s proudest achievements. While Hublot has produced movements in-house for quite a while, during much of their modern history, in-house-made Hublot movements were reserved exclusively for their most expensive and exclusive models such as tourbillons. â€œUNICOâ€ is really the name for a movement platform which can be modified and moduled to offer a range of complications. In its purest form, the UNICO automatic movement offers time plus chronograph (and date), and is very well represented here with the caliber HUB1242. More Replica Hublot Big Bang Unico Watches.
