Hublot proudly presents its newest timepieces from Baselworld 2017.
The Swiss watch brand brings ‘The Art of Fusion’ to Baselworld 2017 with its latest luxury watch collection and I’ve picked out five timepieces worthy of your wrist.
MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis
The MP-09 Tourbillion Bi-Axis is the 1st Hublot multi-axis tourbillion designed with a unique visibility feature. It beats to the rhythm of the fine watchmaking calibre HUB9009.H1.RA, the mechanical movement with self-winding featuring a 5-day power reserve. The tourbillon completes a rotation in 60 seconds on the first axis and 30 second on the other. The date moves forward or back by a day via a simple winding movement of the lever thanks to the innovative date corrector. With its distinctive design that positions at 6 o’clock, we can agree that the new Manufacture Piece (MP) is a masterpiece.
The timepiece comes in two versions – Titanium and King Gold – both are limited to 50 pieces and 20 pieces respectively.
Spirit of Big Bang Sapphire
Hublot introduces Spirit of Big Bang Sapphire with emblematic barrel-shaped case, now transparent, following the transparency trend in watchmaking. The remaining visible elements are the crown, pushers, case screws, the six H-shaped screws of the bezel and the deployant buckle clasp, and the components of the movement. Constructed with sapphire crystal, the new timepiece has a hard and scratch-resistance feature like a diamond.
A minimalist watch that bears witness to a new trend, the Spirit of Big Bang Sapphire is limited to only 250 pieces.
Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph
The Techfram Ferrari is the product of collaboration between Ferrari and Hublot to celebrate the Italian marque’s 70th anniversary. This beauty is designed by Ferrari with a similar approach used for designing a car and crafted by Hublot, the watchmaking expert.
The Tourbillon Chronograph is driven by the new HUB6311 calibre with manual winding, designed and developed by Hublot, with a 5-day power reserve. The single-button chronograph for start-stop-reset functions is handled by an original lever in Ferrari red anodised aluminium.
Destined to be a collector’s item, the Techframe Ferrari is limited to 70 pieces in each version – King Gold, PEEK Carbon, and Titanium.
Big Bang One Click Italia Independent
The creativity of Lapo Elkann and inventiveness of Italia Independent fused with Hublot’s expertise in watchmaking has resulted in the chic timepiece that is the Big Bang One Click Italia Independent. It crafts black ceramic, diamonds and velvet and comes in dark blue, blue and purple. The versatile timepiece offers interchangeable clasps which allow wearers to customise their watch with one click so you can mix the colours at your leisure. The HUB1710 automatic calibre with self-winding movement guarantees 50 hours of power reserve.
This limited edition collection has only 100 pieces available in each design.
Big Bang Unico Sapphire
Hublot creates history in watchmaking by using the colour sapphire for the first time. Thus far, no one has succeeded in making coloured sapphires exceeding 2 kg. However Hublot, driven by its competitive spirit, managed to create a world’s first. The fusion between sapphire and metals creates a coloured sapphire that retains all the original properties of a material which is ultra-scratch resistant, completely transparent and among the hardest in existence.
The crystal case extends to 45 mm and houses HUB1242, UNICO manufacture self-winding chronograph flyback movement with column wheel. The power reserve reaches up to 72 hours.
The Big Bang Unico Sapphire is limited to 250 pieces in red sapphire and blue sapphire respectively.
