Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire

The Art of Fusion taken further

Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire

The Art of Fusion taken further

At Hublot, Innovation is a way of life. The Art of Fusion mindset, masterminded by Jean Claude Biver and further driven forward by current CEO Ricardo Guadeloupe, takes nothing for granted when it comes to using innovative materials such as sapphire and blending for instance gold and rubber.

The Big Bang Unico Sapphire was the first timepiece with a sapphire case back in 2016. Hublot is taking this one step further. With the Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire they go all the way. This is including an integrated case and bracelet, both made of sapphire. And this brings us something that is on the one hand very complex and on the other very much transparent: All watchmaking and casing secrets are revealed, as every aspect is visible.

The case

Take a look at the case of the Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire. Hublot reconstructed it to house the automatic tourbillon movement and realize a fuse with the bracelet. To create the illusion of being “suspended in space” in the movement, Hublot removed almost all of the visible screws. The brand also reworked the the bridges and mainplates. Hublot took complex challenges to reduce the visual result to the simplest possible expression. The in-house developed HUB6035 manufacture movement acts as the beating heart of this piece.

The Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire is a visual Tour de Force

Let’s look at the bracelet. We see 165 unique components and Hublot made 22 from sapphire. Each component had its own industrial process, making sure things blend in a way that works both technically and aesthetically. As an example, Hublot developed ultra-reduced titanium inserts that do not protrude on either side of the bracelet links. Another beautiful example of what the Art of Fusion is all about. 

The Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire is a technical and visual Tour de Force, that has no comparison in today’s horology. Pushing the boundaries once more, Hublot has created both a mind-blowing horological piece and an art piece. 30 people will have the privilege to own and wear it, and the watch will be available at CHF 400,000.
