Hublot Big Bang Replica Watch

Finally debuted, this is the new watch based on the partnership between watch maker Hublot and famous design house Big Bang. The watch is also a loose celebration of Big Bang's 80th anniversary. The watch shares both the Hublot and Big Bang name on the dial. The famous design firm is probably best known for their contributions to Italian car maker Ferrari. Visually a Hublot, the new Big Bang Replica watch proudly displays the modern style and use of innovative materials that Big Bang is accustomed to showcases in their designs. The Replica Watches Australia Offer Big Discount watch has far too many little technical details to cover by me, so below this article I will place some tech specs direct from Hublot. The watch will come out soon and be limited to just 80 pieces.

The hublot replica watch can be worn in few different watches. First, the case can be placed in a special alcantara-style calf leather strap to be worn on the wrist. The case is reversible, meaning that it can be mounted with the front or back facing you. The time can be read from both sides (though the small one-handed dial on the rear of the watch isn't as precise as the time on the main dial. The watch can also be taken off the wrist straps and used as a pocket watch or a table clock. It comes with a little stand as well as a titanium pocket watch chain. As such, this watch clearly fits into the convertible watch list that I wrote about here.

There will be three versions of the Hublot Big Bang Replica watch, one with this DLC coated steel and titanium case, and another two models in titanium, with either 18k white or rose gold bezels instead of the black DLC bezel. The case is going to be 46mm wide and very complex in construction. There are 8 phrases engraved on the side of the case that each represent one decade of Big Bang's existence. See below for the text of the phrases (you will have to translate them). The case is attractive. Nothing ultra-exciting, but then again, I might have to get my hands on it to change my opinion. This is often the case with such timepieces. You can see the large pocket watch style crown at the top of the watch with the guard over it. Most Hublot watches share this design trait.

Inside the watch is a marvelous movement that looks as good as it should operate. It is the automatic Hublot made Calibre 16BA01. It has a micro-rotor in solid platinum on the rear of the watch, and a number of functions. The Big Bang Replica watch has the time (with smaller single hand dial on the back of the watch), special seconds hands that makes a revolution each three minutes, but has indicators for each minute, big date indicator, power reserve indicator (watch has about 80 hours of power reserve), and a unique 80 second Big Bang. On the side of a case is a minute repeater style lever, but it is used to flip the watch over or transform it into one of its other forms. The movement alone has 514 parts, and is interestingly made mostly from brass. Quite beautiful in design and decoration. The type of movement you feel proud taking home to mother.

Even with all the decor and skeletonization, the watch dial itself isn't hard to read. Chalk that up to large, lumed hands and a dedicated hour marker ring around the dial. Using the watch as a pocket watch or table clock isn't going to be very common I suppose. But Hublot is all into the "multi-purpose" luxury watch when you are spending the big dollars. I do find it interesting that the watch is totally reversible, and attractive on both sides. Hublot claims that the process of "changing" the watch is pretty smooth. This mostly involves removing the straps or re-attaching them. The Big Bang Replica watch will likely dazzle enough collectors, and is certainly a good addition to Hublot's collection that needs a few more "modern" pieces in its lineup.
