Tearing away from the pack, Hublot introduces a remarkable watchmaking innovation: the Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey. Rather than merely following trends, Hublot redefines them, transforming the world of luxury watches into an enticing playground of daring aesthetics and unparalleled technical prowess.
The realm of luxury watches is known to sway with trends, especially when it comes to dial colors. However, Hublot diverges from this practice in a way that is nothing short of revolutionary. “The watch industry tends to cash in on major trends in dial colors, such as blue or green, which only seem to last a few seasons. That is not our approach,” says Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO. “Hublot is not a follower of trends.” Indeed, their Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey is a testament to their commitment to distinctive, singular design.
Taking the watchmaking industry by storm, Hublot transcends beyond the realm of conformity and repetitiveness. Rather than joining the bandwagon of fleeting trends, Hublot celebrates the beauty of singularity. Their pursuit of exclusivity, engraved in the ethos of their Essential Grey collection, speaks volumes about their approach to color. Every year, a singular color, model, and distribution channel encompass this unique line, adding a layer of desirability and exclusivity that appeals to discerning collectors and occasional admirers alike.
The latest edition to this rare collection is the Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey. Its limited availability, with only 100 pieces being manufactured, fuels its allure. Making the model even more intriguing is its sole online availability, illustrating Hublot’s commitment to inclusivity by offering an equal opportunity to all interested parties worldwide.
This year, the Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey takes the stage, delighting timepiece enthusiasts with its barrel shape design, fully crafted in radiant titanium. From case to screws, bezel to clasp, the material’s chromatic properties are expertly utilized, setting the stage for the Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey.
Despite its focus on a unified color scheme, Hublot hasn’t overlooked legibility, introducing subtle variations across the chronograph counters, date disc, and finishes. The skeleton architecture of the HUB4700 Calibre is enhanced, maintaining its readability while emphasizing its unique aesthetic. This automatic chronograph movement, operating at a high frequency (5 Hz, or 36,000 vibrations per hour), promises a 50-hour power reserve. With its 42-mm case, lateral push-pieces, and water resistance up to 100 meters, the Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey epitomizes Hublot’s unwavering commitment to technical sophistication.
Adding to its charm is Hublot’s innovative One-Click system, enabling the swift interchange of straps. The watch comes in two variants: grey grooved rubber, and grey with a Velcro buckle and ceramic. Both ensuring that the watch’s style is as versatile as the wearer.
The timepiece, limited to 100 pieces, is exclusively available online at hublot.com for 25,200 euros or $24,100 USD. Each purchase also includes the Full Hublot Service, which provides a complimentary full service after the warranty period has expired. This ensures your Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey remains in pristine condition, reflecting Hublot’s dedication to its customers.
