Hublot has launched 50 limited edition pieces of the Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic series with through-tinted orange sapphires.
The watchmakers has reinterpreted the Big Bang Sapphire Tourbillon in an orange shade, achieved through the incorporation of titanium and chromium in the manufacturing process.
Unlike traditional tourbillon movements, equipped with manual winding, this “exceptional calibre” encompasses a self-winding system ensuring a minimum power reserve of three days (72 hours).
It is equipped with ceramic ball bearings and the “latest Hublot technical advances” in its winding system. The manufacturer has also reconstructed the movement in its entirety in order to make the micro-rotor visible from the dial side.
The grey 22-carat gold micro-rotor is set off by “exquisite decoration” (bevelling, sunray-brushing and sand-blasting), as well as by signature Hublot openwork in the precious metal.
The manufacture calibre on the series is equipped for the first time with three sapphire bridges – a barrel bridge, an automatic bridge and a tourbillon barrette. The lightweight effect of the skeleton work is accentuated by heavily open-worked and sandblasted platinum.
The transparent orange rubber strap with a lined relief with a patented express One Click interchangeability system and titanium deployant buckle completes the “cutting-edge” look of this limited edition collection.
