Hublot presented models reflecting the splendor of fusion art during LVMH Watch Week, which Hublot continued digitally between 25-29 January.
Hublot is already a master in sapphire cases; it has been doing top – notch work in the use of sapphires in transparent and shaded shades of yellow, blue, red and black until now. However, now it has completely reached a different level.
Hublot once again broke a new ground by adding a brand new color to sapphire library with the new Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Orange Sapphire, which is limited by 50 watches. This unprecedented technical and aesthetic feat is not just about a completely new tourbillon movement or just an automatic winding ( a rare app for tourbillon), also it rehash and rewrite the Big Bang architecture which has a micro rotor and three sapphire bridges visible on the face of the dial.
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, has said for new watch: “ Hublot has created a new extraordinary innovation by world’s first orange sapphire case. Our work reaffirms its expertise in watchmaking with a new automatic tourbillon caliber, which is designed and produced in entirely our in-house and underlines its innovative design in its dial-oriented architecture with its magnificent visibility. According to Hublot, this is the Art of the Fusion in all its glory.”
