Hublot Big Bang Unico White 42 mm

Elegant, minimalist and refined, the Big Bang 42 mm is dressed all in white for a relaxed and timeless look. Its size and colour make it equally at home in men’s or women’s wardrobe.

In 2018, Hublot launched the Big Bang Unico 42 mm, a new diameter that opened up the world of unisex watches to the brand. This diameter was made possible thanks to the second version of the brand’s UNICO proprietary manufacture movement, the calibre HUB1280, which is protected by four patents. The movement is just 6.75 mm thick, allowing for a thinner case measuring 14.5 mm.

Dressed entirely in white, a symbol of unity and harmony and the perfect match for any colour, the Big Bang Unico 42 White is a neutral and timeless addition to any wardrobe.

An immaculate colour available in a polished/satin-finished version with a bezel set with 126 diamonds (approx. 1.1 ct.), or fully paved with 296 diamonds (approx. 1.9 ct) on a white lined structured rubber strap.

One watch, six versions — in King Gold or titanium — to be boldly paired with any colour for limitless appeal.
