Being inspired by the unique design of the One Million $ Black Caviar timepiece, Hublot created two extraordinary models that bring together modern sporty and graphic design, with the sparkle of feminine beauty, luxury and glamour. New steel and 5N red gold Big Bang Caviar watches come in two versions – one that presents aesthetically perfect, one-tone design and the second one that offers a serious dose of luxury on its diamond set bezel.
In 2009, the renowned Swiss watchmaker created a breathtaking One Million $ Black Caviar watch that won the Best Jewelry Watch prize at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève. That was more than a clear sign for Hublot to keep up with this fabulous design. Thus, created of black ceramic, a Big Bang Black Caviar line that followed, soon became one of the brand’s bestsellers. The latest models offer novelties in color and material, but they preserved the wining design code, characteristic by contemporary architecture, sharp angles and relief surfaces which are masterfully cut, bevelled and polished to reach a unique visual appearance.
The case has the diameter of 41mm, which is unusually large for a ladies’ watch, but perfectly suitable for this extraordinary type of timepiece. There are two red gold versions. The first one (Ref. 346.PX.0880.VR) features a 5N gold bezel with a polished baguette decoration, while the second variation (Ref. 346.PX.0880.VR.1204) combines a red gold bezel with 36 diamonds. The steel model (346.SX.0870.VR) has the polished baguette decoration on its bezel, while the Ref. 346.PX.0870.VR.1204 model comes with a steel bezel completely set with 36 diamonds. Each bezel is fixed by six characteristic, H-shaped screws which are either made of 5N gold or titanium, depending on a version.
The dial of the new Big Bang Caviar watch completely follows the authentic design of the case and the bezel. It is either crafted in matching 5N red gold or rhodium PVD ceramic, featuring polished and skeletonized hands with black nickel coating. At the 3 o’clock position, there is a trapezoid date window. This amazing dial is protected with anti-reflective sapphire crystal.
The strap is also in the function of keeping the perfect harmony of the one-tone watch. Thus, it is either made of shiny silver leather, sewn onto black rubber or red gold colored calfskin, also sewn onto rubber that provides exceptional comfort, flexibility and resistance.
Inside the case, visible through a sapphire crystal case-back, there is a HUB1112 self-winding movement. It has only 62 components and 21 jewels. Besides, its frequency is 4 Hz (28,600 vibrations per hour), while the power lasts for up to 42 hours, when the watch is fully wound.
