Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon

All the spirit of the Big Bang in a barrel-shaped watch: such is the new Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon 42mm and its carbon-fibre case with black or blue occlusions. This double edition limited to 100 models beats to the rhythm of the new HUB6020 tourbillon movement, specially designed for this case. Another first: the Spirit of Big Bang is, for the first time, fitted with the “One-Click” fastening system, allowing the strap to be changed easily and quickly.

Immediately recognisable 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-fibre 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-winding via the large fluted 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.
