As if encapsulating our travels, summer memories live on forever in Hublot’s Big Bang Unico Summer
It is the dazzling natural blues, transformed by the summer light, that we would most like to bring back with us from the Côte d’Azur, Seychelles, and beyond. And, through its expertise in materials technology, Hublot has immortalised this perfect harmony with the creation of the Big Bang Unico Summer. The 42mm case is made of anodised, satin-finished and polished aluminium, a modern, lightweight coloured material. This technical feat creates a uniform blue – turquoise like the deepest lagoons. Just 200 of these unisex pieces are being released, initially available online and in the Mediterranean boutiques in Capri, Forte dei Marmi, Mykonos, Ibiza, Bodrum, Saint-Tropez and Monaco.
Reminiscent of our dream vacation, the Big Bang Unico Summer features a unique turquoise blue, which shimmers as its satin and polished finishes catch the light. Anodisation has been used to colour the case and its components in this very special pastel shade. The process guarantees remarkable longevity and protects the case from scratches and impacts. This lightweight timepiece, with its 42mm diameter, is designed to suit every wrist. At its heart beats the UNICO manufacture calibre (HUB1280), featuring a 72-hour power reserve, and an oscillating seconds clutch, a chronograph friction system with ball-bearing adjustment, and a column wheel that can be seen through its dial. The hands shimmer in luminescent white and turquoise as they move around the dial to the rhythm of the hours and minutes. The movement is just 6.75mm thick, allowing for a thinner case measuring just 14.5mm.
Equipped with the patented interchangeable ‘One Click’ attachment system, the Big Bang Unico Summer comes with two straps in this same radiant colour: one Velcro strap with matching stitching and one natural rubber strap. The sports buckle (for the Velcro strap), and the decorative plate on the deployant clasp (for the rubber strap), are also made from turquoise anodised aluminium with the Hublot logo engraved and lacquered in brilliant white.
