Hublot introduced the Big Bang series in 2005. The idea was to combine materials not commonly used together to create the best watch out there, and it was a huge success. The series has received multiple awards and is worn by celebrities all over the world. There are two different face sizes available between 44mm and 45mm. The most cutting edge technology goes into these watches while maintaining the original Hublot "porthole" appearance.
We'll introduce you to the top five Bing Bang watches and give you all the information you need to make an informed choice.
1. Hublot Big Bang Unico (411.JX.4802.RT)
We've chosen the Unico Sapphire 45mm to highlight this collection. There are multiple other options available in the Unico line so you'll want to take a look at more than just this one. It took four years to develop the Unico's movement, and 330 parts are involved in the process. Extensive research and development were performed to make the Unico one of the most technologically advanced watches available today.
Sapphire crystal and transparent linen straps combine to make the Sapphire look stunning. You have to take a look at this gorgeous watch to believe just how beautiful it looks. If you'd prefer not to go transparent, the watch is also available in multiple other options including black.
This watch is currently listed for $63,912.00.
2. Hublot Big Bang MECA-10 (414.NI.1123.RX)
This watch is available in both titanium and all black. Ceramic composition gives it a unique toughness and it holds ten days of power reserve. Construction includes micro-blasted titanium, and the inner casing is an anti-reflective treated sapphire crystal. The straps are a black structure lined with rubber for a comfortable and durable fit.
This watch is currently listed for $21,969.75.
3. Hublot Big Bang Alarm Repeater King Gold Ceramic (403.OM.0123.RX)
The case on this one is polished, and satin finished 18K gold that beautifully compliments the polished and satin finished black steel. Similar to the MECA-10, this watch also has black structured rubber straps and an anti-reflective inner casing of sapphire crystal. This stunning timepiece has a 72-hour power reserve. You have to see it for yourself to understand just how gorgeous this watch looks. Hublot has paid careful attention to every last detail, even gold plating the clock hands. This one is a limited edition with a total of 250 created.
This watch is currently listed for $54,720.00.
4. Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Power Reserve 5 Days Full Magic Gold (405.MX.0138.RX)
The outer casing on this beauty is polished magic gold with black composite resin. It also has an anti-reflective treated sapphire inner housing and a dark structure lined rubber strap. The power reserve is approximately 115 hours. This watch is one of my favorite. The full magic gold has a unique appearance that doesn't resemble any other watch I've seen. It's also available in black, titanium, and king's gold. King's gold is an attractive color. It's not red enough to look like rose gold, but it's a significantly warmer color gold than the full magic gold. This one is a limited edition with a total of 50 created.
This watch is currently listed $74,256.00.
5. Hublot Big Bang Ferrari King Gold Carbon (401.OJ.0123.VR)
Saving the best for last, this one is micro-blasted 18K King gold. The inside is a stunning 18K red gold alongside carbon fiber. The strap the watch arrives with is the black rubber and brown Schedoni leather strap. An additional black Alcantara leather strap will be in the box. This one is a limited edition with a total of 500 created.
This watch is currently listed $32,718.00.
These incredible timepieces are durable, accurate, and all have unique features and fine details that will stand out in a crowd. Keep in mind if you aren't confident about the appearance of any of the watches above, each is available in at least one other color. Almost all of them are available in black. So, if you had any second thoughts just visit hublot.com and look around. You might realize a minor color change makes a huge difference in how you feel about the piece.
There are a limited number of Hublot dealers around the world. You can use the find a boutique feature of their website at http://www.hublot.com/en/boutique to look for one near you. In the U.S. there are a lot of locations, but they're not everywhere. I did see one in Las Vegas. You can get a cheap flight to Las Vegas from anywhere in the United States. Even if it's a few hundred dollars round-trip, that's nothing when you're talking about buying a watch worth over $20,000.00.
The price information included may not necessarily be the best price out there. Some boutiques won't provide a price online and insist you contact them directly for a quote. If you're looking for a timepiece, you may get a better deal that way. It's even more likely to get a good deal if you bring up a price offered by the competition. Beware, though; it's possible some of the sellers online could be selling knockoffs. If they're providing a watch significantly cheaper than a boutique is willing to sell it consider the possibility that might be a red flag and make sure to verify authenticity before making a purchase.
The five watches listed above are the top five Hublot Big Bang watches. They're not the only styles available so be sure to check out the others if none of these suit your fancy. All of Hublot's watches are high-quality timepieces which will last a long time. I wouldn't discourage you from buying any of them, but the ones listed above are the best!
