Hublot‘s legacy of creating exquisite timepieces continues with its latest unveiling – the Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey. This limited edition watch is a blend of impeccable craftsmanship and distinctive style, targeting discerning collectors and watch aficionados.
The Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey represents a unique approach in watchmaking. Birthed from the concept of singularity, Hublot has focused on a single color – luminous grey, which is emphasized through the various elements of the watch. What makes this piece extremely special is its limited availability; only 100 pieces will be manufactured, making it a treasured item for collectors.
This year, Hublot has chosen to make the Spirit of Big Bang part of its Essential Grey collection. The watch is exclusively available online, reflecting Hublot’s intent to offer everyone an equal opportunity to acquire this masterpiece, regardless of their proximity to the brand’s 130 sales outlets. Furthermore, the 2023 release is doubly rare as compared to its 2022 predecessor, with the production limited to just 100 pieces.
One of the most notable features of the Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey is its construction from 100% titanium. This includes the case, bezel, screws, crown, push-pieces, case-back, and folding clasp. Titanium, known for its durability and lightweight properties, also has a soft, radiant grey hue which Hublot has utilized as the base color for the Essential Grey version.
To complement the titanium construction, the rubber strap is perfectly matched, lined with black thread on the outer edge to mark the vanishing line. The chromatic properties of titanium are further enhanced through sandblasting and grinding techniques.
Hublot’s commitment to excellence extends to the Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey’s movement. The watch features the HUB4700 Calibre, an automatic chronograph movement with a high frequency of 5 Hz or 36,000 vibrations per hour, and a 50-hour power reserve. This ensures impeccable timekeeping and reliability.
Moreover, to ensure legibility without compromising style, Hublot has introduced subtle variations in this Essential Grey, particularly on the date disc and chronograph counters. The various finishes, including mirror polishing, drawn lines, graining, and luminescent hour markers, further contribute to the watch’s aesthetic appeal while enhancing the skeleton architecture of the HUB4700 Calibre.
For those interested in owning a piece of this limited edition collection, the Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey is available exclusively online at Hublot.com. This purchase includes the Full Hublot Service, which is activated at the moment of sale. This service allows you to have your watch fully serviced free of charge once your warranty has expired, including recovering the original finish, renewing the water-resistance, overhauling the movement, and controlling the quality.
