BIG BANG SAPPHIRE TOURBILLON

When i discovered the Big Bang Sapphire Tourbillon (launched during Baselworld 2018),
i realized how well HUBLOT Masters « Sapphire »

Being the hardest and most durable material after diamond, i was already familiar with some previous versions. Blue, Pink or around Gold parts (for a Usain Bolt creation), the variety of sapphire timepieces is quite diverse however this is my favourite!
Fully transparent, the watch brings the famous Hublot « Disruptive » effect to the top.

The transparency that the Big Bang Sapphire Tourbillon offers is amazing. The case, dial, strap… A paradise for Mechanical lovers! You can see the barrel spring at 12 o’clock, the Power reserve indication at 9 o’clock and a discrete transparent outer minutes ring graduation.

I love the fact that the Tourbillon is in front (or below) the barrel. It sort of shows the beginning and the end of a defined « loop » as the movement HUB 6016 has a hand wound mechanism.

The transparent strap is on line with the overall concept but i can totally imagine other variations attached to the case. The brand’s interchangeable strap system is very easy to use and it’s going to completely change its look, for sure.

Well done! HUBLOT.
