01: Big Bang Integral Time Only
If you liked the look of the earlier Big Bang Integral models with their integrated ceramic or metal bracelets but found the 42mm size too large, or their chronograph function redundant, you might want to consider the latest take on the model. Available in black ceramic, titanium or yellow gold, the 40mm Big Bang Integral Time Only is powered by an MHUB1710 automatic movement, which is based on an Elite movement by sister brand Zenith.
Visible through the openworked dial, the movement is satin-finished to enhance legibility, while the bracelet features links with a mix of satin-finished and polished finishes. As with other Hublot All Black pieces, the all-black ceramic edition is a 250-piece limited edition.
02: Big Bang Sang Bleu II
Arguably the most successful collaboration between a watch brand and a tattoo artist, the Hublot and Sang Bleu partnership now enters its seventh year. The original Sang Bleu pieces were launched in 2016, but in 2019, this partnership was taken a step further with the Sang Bleu II in King Gold or titanium.
The Sang Bleu II models are more detailed and feature the geometric patterns of tattoo artist Maxime Plescia-Buchi across its case, hexagonal bezel, sapphire crystal, hands and strap. For 2022, three new editions are available, in Hublot’s scratch-resistant Magic Gold, green ceramic or black ceramic.
03: Yellow Gold collection
We are advocates of wearing gold like you mean it, so we are thrilled to see Hublot’s Yellow Gold collection, which sees the launch of six timepieces crafted from the precious metal. It’s a throwback to the origins of the brand, which was the first to combine a gold watch with a rubber strap back in 1980. Celebrating the brand’s key models, the collection comprises the Big Bang Unico (in yellow gold as well as two other diamond-set models), the Classic Fusion Chronograph, the Big Bang Integral and the tonneau-shaped Spirit of Big Bang.
