10 YEARS ALL BLACK


Ten years after the launch of the All Black pioneering concept, and to mark the anniversary of this now iconic and must-have trend, Hublot commemorated the All Black story around the world.


BIG BANG UNICO SAPPHIRE ALL BLACK

The exterior of the Big Bang watch is now invisible, so that the construction and movement of the timepiece are now fully observable. Through a fusion of materials, textures and finishes, Hublot has used the Big Bang Unico Sapphire All Black to reinterpret the iconic All Black style.

TOTAL TRANSPARENCY Hublot has capitalised on challenges and created 500 Big Bang Unico Sapphire models cut straight from sapphire, without losing sapphire’s unique and rare character. This is a first. Sapphire had never previously been cut "on such a large scale". The exterior of the watch is now invisible, so that the construction and movement of the timepiece are now fully visible. A cutting-edge concept that takes transparency right the way through to its now invisible strap. Beyond the symbolism and wordplay, the Big Bang is laid bare.
