Good at simple and elegant designs that are ideal for the boardroom, Hublot is also really good at designs that appeal to those seeking a timepiece that, while eminently practical, is seriously way the fork out there. Enter the Big Bang Series with their Big Band UNICO Magic Sapphire and Red Magic Ceramic models. The latest Big Bang is crafted from SAXEM, a transparent green material not often seen in timepieces, giving it an automatic cachet of rarity and huge visual appeal. The green case that is harder than emeralds yet more brilliant than sapphire, houses a 14-day power reserve that will be appreciated by those devotees of mechanical works who have run out of room on their watch winders. Ideal for weekend use, it will be ready to roll once you ditch the suit & tie; Hublot.com.
