Hublot’s passion for materials – gold, ceramic, sapphire – is hardly a secret. But the new Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire exemplifies the extent of that passion!
An incredible design accomplishment, both the case and the bracelet are made from Sapphire with a fully transparent body that further adds to the complexity of production. All of this undertaken while ensuring flexibility, durability and comfort perfectly captures Hublot’s technical prowess.
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, delves deeper into this unique watch: “For such an exceptional creation, we opted for the new Automatic Tourbillon calibre with its sapphire bridges, the transparency of which creates a stunning spectacle. The act of creating an integrated case and bracelet from sapphire was, however, deemed impossible. But we were the first brand to gain perfect mastery of sapphire, industrialising it and making it reproducible in series production. It took us five years to bring our first sapphire cases to life – and almost as long for the bracelet. Producing both from sapphire and integrating them together is the pinnacle of the in-depth work undertaken by all of Hublot’s teams. We are proud to be the ones writing the first lines in this new chapter in the history of materials”.
