Hublot introduces a carbon fibre case with black or blue occlusions to the Spirit of Big Bang range. The HUB6020 movement of this Tourbillon, a limited edition of 100, was designed specifically for the case.

Immediately recognizable from all the other collections, the Spirit of Big Bang cultivates its difference while sporting all the codes of Hublot’s DNA. Starting with this Art of Fusion, now a signature in terms of materials: for the first time in this collection, the barrel-shaped case is made of carbon-fiber integrating black or blue composites. In the same material, the bezel is held by 6 H-shaped titanium screws while the case back, also in carbon, surrounds a sapphire crystal.

Structured, airy, technical; the driving force behind the new Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon 42mm is a concentration of innovations and expertise. The most emblematic complication in fine watchmaking, both spectacular and visual, the tourbillon—incorporating a mobile frame making one complete rotation per minute—offsets the force of terrestrial gravity for increased accuracy. Specifically developed for this barrel-shaped case, the HUB6020 movement reveals an hours and minutes dial off-centre at 3 o’clock, the tourbillon at 6 o’clock, and an indicator for the 5-day power reserve at 8 o’clock. Hand-binding via the large flute crown.

For the first time, the “One-Click” fastening system, allowing the strap to be changed safely and quickly, makes its appearance on the Spirit of Big Bang collection. The two limited editions, in black carbon composite and blue carbon composite, with 100 models for each, come with a black structured rubber strap lined respectively in black or blue/black.
