Hublot Serves Up Big Bang Unico in Vibrant Green SAXEM

Hublot Serves Up Big Bang Unico in Vibrant Green SAXEM

Published: February 23, 2024 | By: American Luxury Staff

Hublot has once again defied the traditional boundaries of watchmaking with its innovative use of SAXEM, a material originally intended for the satellite industry, now reimagined as the skeleton of its latest horological marvel, the Big Bang Unico Green SAXEM. Limited to a mere 100 pieces, this avant-garde timepiece, unveiled at LVMH Watch Week 2024, marries high-tech materials with Hublot’s signature bold design language.

This is not Hublot’s first foray into the world of SAXEM; the brand’s dance with the material began in 2019, producing a lineage of watches that stand out for their vividly saturated hues and unmatched hardness. However, the Big Bang Unico Green SAXEM distinguishes itself with a fully transparent green visage that seems to borrow the essence of an emerald block, making it a wearable artifact of considerable allure.

The dimensions of this green spectacle remain consistent with the core collection of the Big Bang Unico series, sporting a 42mm diameter and a 14.5mm thickness, ensuring its prominence on the wrist. Despite its resemblance in design to its brethren, the SAXEM model is differentiated by its reduced water resistance of 50 meters, black titanium H-shaped screws binding its components, and a matching green rubber strap equipped with Hublot’s proprietary One Click system for swift personalization.

The heart of the Big Bang Unico Green SAXEM beats with the HUB1280 UNICO 2 automatic flyback chronograph movement, embellished with a black PVD finish to complement its verdant exterior. With 354 parts and a 72-hour power reserve, this caliber showcases Hublot’s commitment to marrying aesthetics with mechanical sophistication.

In a market where luxury timepieces often tread a fine line between tradition and innovation, Hublot’s latest creation is a testament to the brand’s philosophy of “The Art of Fusion.” Priced at $116,000 USD, this unique piece challenges the norms with its adventurous use of materials and colors, making it the envy of collectors and a beacon of what the future holds for innovative timekeeping.
