PUSHING BACK THE BOUNDARIES

Intentionally and repeatedly overturning every convention, probing the confines of an unexplored dimension while deepening the link with tradition

In 2016, driven by its innovative spirit, Hublot began to popularise and revolutionize sapphire; a totally transparent and ultra-resistant material that is ultra-complex to a machine. In 2017, the watchmaker pushed the limits even further: the master of the Art of Fusion accomplished the feat of creating large colored sapphires, despite the complexity, unpredictability, instability, and lack of homogeneity in the fusion and crystallization of sapphire. This innovation and mastery are backed both by significant investments, which have facilitated the industrialization of sapphire and by the work of the internal R&D team, which is continuously exploring how to create new colors of sapphire.

Pushing back the boundaries of engineering and chemistry, Hublot is creating large, perfectly uniform, transparent and colored sapphires. A material that dresses the Big Bang Unico, the Spirit of Big Bang and even the MP-05 LaFerrari in transparency. Watches whose external parts have become invisible, revealing all of their architecture and movement.

Today, Hublot is inviting a new primary blue color into its color chart by fusing copper with aluminum oxide. The result is a colored sapphire which is the most scratch-resistant and highly transparent material, one of the hardest that exists.

The Spirit of Big Bang Blue Sapphire is as hard and scratch-resistant as diamond, and as light as titanium, 107 grams on the wrist. The 42mm polished blue sapphire crystal tonneau case is styled with a gorgeous sapphire crystal dial and is water-resistant to a depth of 50 meters. The dial featuring individual luminescent index and blue superluminova.

After transparent, smoked black, blue and red sapphires, Hublot continues its colorimetric quest. And as the sky has never been its limit, the watchmaker is once again marking a world first by bringing the color of the sun into its watches. The Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Sapphire is energising, luminous and brilliant. Absolute transparency dressed by the sparkle of a solar yellow that extends all the way to its natural rubber bracelet lined with the color yellow.

Released in only 100 pieces, the Spirit of Big Bang Blue Sapphire and Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Sapphire houses a self-winding skeleton chronograph movement, entirely “Hublotised” in its architecture and its finishing, from the legendary Zenith El Primero caliber.

Whether it represents a color of joy, celebration, power, wealth or wisdom for you, the Spirit of Big Bang Blue Sapphire and Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Sapphire will shine on your wrist.
