The Big Bang Unico by Hublot

By Paul Joseph

Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot arrived at the prestigious Baselworld fair in Switzerland last week armed with a dazzling array of new timepieces.

Amongst their latest creations on display at the event, which came to a close today, was the Big Bang Unisco, which builds on the distinctive design of Hublot’s Big Bang collection.

Available in four models - Titanium Ceramic, Titanium, King Gold Ceramic and King Gold – the new timepiece is the first in a new line of Hublot products designed to house all future versions of the UNICO Manufacture movement.

Hublot recently announced their intention to produce all movements in-house within the next 3-5 years.

Boasting a 45.5mm case, the Big Bang Unico features a flyback chronograph which can be reset at any time, and a newly-designed screw-down crown with overmoulded rubber.

Additionally, for the first time since Hublot’s first Big Bang model in 2005, the Unico’s chrono pushers are round, with piston-style finishing.

Baselworld 2013 ran from March 27th – April 3rd.
