Hublot Big Bang Orange Sapphire

Transparent, yellow, black, blue, red – Hublot has mastered the creation and machining of sapphires with exclusive shades for its watchcases.  Hublot is announcing today a completely new colour for its palette of through-tinted sapphires: orange. A new fusion of daring and transparency, in a limited edition of 50 pieces.

Hublot Big Bang Automatic Tourbillon Orange Sapphire. It is the most eye-catching launch from a Hublot webcast today that aimed to take the place of the hugely successful LVMH Watch Week, which took place in Dubai last January, before covid shut down.

The 45mm translucent and finely polished bezel and case are enhanced by the technical tone of the six H-shape titanium screws that are distinctive of the Big Bang design, it also marks the debut of an entirely new movement from the LVMH watch brand. Beating at the frequency of 3 Hz or 21,600 vibrations per hour, the new manufacture MHUB6035 tourbillon movement is not only equipped with self-winding and ceramic ball bearings but also with a reinvented architecture with a micro-rotor minimum power reserve of three days (72 hours), visible on the dial side and three sapphire bridges. 

The perpetual movements of the micro-rotor set at 12 o’clock echo the rotation of the tourbillon, its regulating organ, positioned in perfect symmetry at 6 o’clock. The grey 22-carat gold micro-rotor is set off by exquisite decoration, as well as by signature Hublot openwork in the precious metal.

Just 50 pieces of the orange sapphire crystal reference will be produced. The Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Orange Sapphire has a price of CHF 160,000 / Euro 167,000 / US$ 169,000. hublot.com. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
