BIG BANG UNICO SAPPHIRE ALL BLACK

BIG BANG UNICO SAPPHIRE ALL BLACK

TO CELEBRATE THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ALL BLACK CONCEPT, HUBLOT INTRODUCED AN INTERESTING TIMEPIECE: A SMOKED SAPPHIRE CRYSTAL CASE SURROUNDING A SKELETON "TRANSPARENT" MOVEMENT !

The duality could be explained in many ways: black - white / visible - invisible / transparent - opaque / inside - outside and more…
In anyways, we love the idea and the final result looks stunning!

Your eyes will enjoy the mechanical movement starting by a skeletonized date disk and a central platform holding the hour/minutes/chronograph hands. Then you’ll notice the duality between the seconds & chronograph indicators !
Details are very important and here you have a smoked indication in front of a transparent one (3 o'clock vs 9 o'clock), GREAT isn’t it ?

Always a pleasure to have the columm wheel visible as much as a chronograph complication either on a mechanical and/or aesthetic point of view.

Wonderful "rendez-vous" bewteen complementary or opposites characters !
