Hublot has achieved a new world first with this Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic shaped in a case made of orange sapphire. This feat is combined with a new tourbillon automatic movement with its micro-rotor visible on the dial side and three sapphire bridges.

Hublot continues to innovate by reinterpreting the Big Bang Sapphire Tourbillon in an entirely new orange shade – a world first for a through-tinted sapphire – achieved thanks to the incorporation of titanium and chromium in a skillful manufacturing process.

A revolutionary case with an innovative movement. Unlike traditional tourbillon movements, equipped with manual winding, this exceptional calibre makes a name for itself thanks to its 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 manufacture did also reconstruct the movement in its entirety in order to make the micro-rotor visible from the dial side. 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. Hublot has also continued in its quest for transparency by using more sapphire in the movement itself. The calibre is then equipped for the first time with three sapphire bridges – a barrel bridge, an automatic bridge and a tourbillon barrette.

For those wanting technical style and audacity in other futuristic materials, Hublot is offering the Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic in a limited edition of 100 pieces with a case and bezel in Texalium®, an exclusive lightweight and ergonomic material that combines carbon fibre and aluminium. The brand also reaffirms its unique mastery of high-tech ceramic in a Black Magic 100-piece limited edition made from black ceramic.
