In partnership with Martín Fuentes, Hublot friend of the brand, World Champion of the 2018 GT AM Pirelli World Challenge and 2016 GT-A World Challenge Championship, Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot has unveiled the new Big Bang Unico Squadra Corse watches, in black ceramic or in 18K King Gold (alloy developed by Hublot with 18K gold 5N and platinum, to avoid the oxidation of gold).
The Big Bang Unico Squadra Corse boasts the Squadra Corse Garage Italia shield on the case back, the representative tricolor of Mexico and the colors of the already characteristic Ferrari 488 GT3 that has accompanied him in the last championship.
True to its DNA, The Art of Fusion, the bezel of the two Big Bang watches is in carbon with
Green, White and Red inserts. Hublot used carbon for its specificities: lightness, toughness and the sporty aesthetic. Besides, there is a specific detail on the dial, dedicated to Martín Fuentes: the only numeral index is the 7 as it represents Martín Fuentes car number.
Moreover, each version will be available with two straps: one in black alcantara and red stitching and another one in red alligator leather. In order to respect Hublot DNA, both straps have a rubber base.
It will be very easy for the holder of the watch to change his strap because he only needs to push the “One Click” button to take it off and switch with the other one.
Furthermore, the Big Bang Unico Squadra Corse watches will be sold in a watchbox including a reversible belt that incorporates the watch strap materials, namely the alcantara on one side and the alligator leather on the other.
