Hublot conjures the radiance of summer and the enchantment of discovery in the sunny season with the latest model: The Big Bang Unico Summer.
It might not be the cross-continental summer you had in mind, and who knows, maybe staycations really are to stay? But rest assured, the mood of summer is ripe, come rain or shine. The hypnotic summer light, the tingling warmth against your skin and the rapturous waves lapping in the breeze form the notes of inspiration for Hublot’s latest model, the Big Bang Unico Summer.
What to expect from the Big Bang Unico Summer
It’s scientifically proven that you’re meant to feel better in summer, and Hublot turns its hand to creating a watch that conjures the same sense of joy. With great expertise in the technology of materials, Hublot immortalises this delight with a 42-mm case is made of anodized satin- finished and polished aluminum, a modern, lightweight colored material. This technical feat creates a uniform blue; turquoise akin to the deepest lagoons to dive into. Just 200 of these unisex pieces are being released, initially available on the e-commerce site and in the Mediterranean boutiques in Capri, Forte dei Marmi, Mykonos, Ibiza, Bodrum, Saint-Tropez and Monaco.
An Ode to summer delight
With the nostalgia of our global excursions that resurfaces each year as we embark on adventures, the Big Bang Unico Summer features a unique turquoise blue, which shimmers as its satin and polished finishes catch the light. Anodisation was used to colour the case and its components with this unique pastel shade. This process guarantees remarkable longevity and protects the case from scratches and impacts.
This lightweight timepiece, with its 42-mm diameter, is designed to suit each and every wrist, and at its core beats the UNICO manufacture calibre (HUB1280), featuring a 72-hour power reserve, and an oscillating seconds clutch, a chronograph friction system with ball-bearing adjustment, and a column wheel that can be seen through its dial.
A transformative journey at your fingertips
Flickering in luminescent white and turquoise, the hands oscillate as they tick around the dial to the rhythm of the hours and minutes. The movement is just 6.75 mm thick, allowing for a thinner case measuring just 14.5 mm.
Equipped with the patented interchangeable “One Click” attachment system, the Big Bang Unico Summer comes with two straps in this same radiant colour: one Velcro strap with matching stitching and one natural rubber strap. Commenting on the House’s latest offering, CEO Ricardo Guadalupe motions: “The Big Bang Unico Summer embodies the beauty of our summer experiences. We wanted to give you another shade for this year, to let you relive these magic moments any time you want. This enchantment of the journey that we bring back with us transforms us a little, for the better… And even if daily life has not really changed on our return, our eyes being open to other horizons is enough to lend it new color.”
