Hublot Introduces Big Bang Unico Magic Sapphire Replica Buying Guide


Back into the Hublot HUB6311 movement, it’s done in Ruthenium-coated Anthracite, also Hublot also boasts of an “invisible” crystal above the cage which holds the top area of the tourbillon using a bridge. I’ll have to wait to watch this in action closely, but Hublot states that the result is that the aesthetics of a flying tourbillon when supplying the equilibrium of a tourbillon using two pivot points.The watch is 45mm wide but 14.8mm thick, that is pretty thin, thanks partially to the manual-winding motion. The crown is at 4 o’clock with the chronograph pusher over it that Hublot asserts is an ergonomic decision – though I can envision an errant digit or thumb hitting on the pusher unintentionally when adjusting the crown. That would be somewhat annoying, even if the motion weren’t sufficient to start the chronograph. But I’m just imagining and nitpicking here.The Hublot Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph is a stunning but not gaudy tribute to Ferrari’s 70th anniversary, and though we do not have images of this gold version still, the titanium and PEEK Carbon (that’s carbon made with specially long fibers for durability) look absolutely incredible to me. I’m a fairly big fan of Hublot, however I believe even people who say a few of their offerings are “too much” will probably have the ability to enjoy the layout here. Of course, that admiration is going to be accomplished similarly to most appreciation of Ferrari’s cars: from a distance. Coming in 70 pieces of each model, the ceramic version will be priced at $127,000, the carbon version at $137,000, and the King Gold version will cost $158,000. Hublot designed a persuasive 3-sided sapphire crystal case that tapers at 6 o’clock especially to display the dual turning of this bi-axial tourbillon. Not just the case was produced to set the bi-axial tourbillon front and centre, the new movement was made with maximum visibility of this mechanism in mind. So, yeah, this Hublot is all about being seen and the result is a wristwatch that’s unlike any other.

First introduced last year, the Hublot Big Bang in clear sapphire returns with a new and improved case construction that’s been simplified and streamlined.

While the Big Bang Unico Magic Sapphire retains the recognisable design of the Big Bang – it remains the same size at 45mm in diameter – the case eliminates the titanium parts of the earlier model, as well as the multi-part construction of the bezel and case back.

This increases the transparency of the watch case, while making it easier to put together and more robust. That being said, the Big Bang Unico Magic Sapphire is water-resistant to 50m, instead of the 100m offered by its predecessor.

The movement inside remains the HUB 1242, an automatic calibre with a modular chronograph that has a flyback function.
