Since its founding, and particularly in recent years, Hublot has been on the cutting edge of both unusual

colorways and avant-garde materials. Now, inspired by the promise of a vibrant, post-Covid-19 summer, the Nyon-

based manufacture remains true to this calling card with the Big Bang Unico Summer, a festive, monochromatic

timepiece featuring a turquoise-blue case made of anodized aluminum.

The anodization process used to apply the lagoon-inspired, pastel color to the 42-mm case (considered a “unisex” size

by Hublot) imparts it exceptional, long-lasting resistance to scratches and impacts; its also combination of polished and

satin finishes ensure that it shimmers appealingly in the sunlit and often tropical conditions that its design intends

to evoke. Made of aluminum, it’s also extremely light on the wrist, and features the familiar Big Bang Unico elements,

including the bezel with six H-shaped screws, the fluted. screwed crown with “H” engraving, and also ergonomic buttons to operate the watch’s chronograph function.

The skeletonized dial, with turquoise-blue details including the hands, subdials, hour numerals and minute track, offers

a view of Hublot’s self-winding Unico Caliber HUB1280. The in-house movement’s noteworthy attributes include a 72-

hour power reserve, a 4-Hz frequency, an oscillating seconds clutch, a chronograph friction system with ball-bearing

adjustment and a column wheel that’s on display on the dial side. The hands and numerals have white and turquoise

luminous coating to keep track of the time, if the wearer so chooses, on those lazy summer nights.

The movement, including its skeletonized rotor, is also visible through a sapphire window in the caseback, which is the

only major part of the watch made of satin-brushed titanium rather than anodized aluminum. Both the movement and

case are uncommonly thin for a Big Bang — 6.75 mm and 14.5 mm thick, respectively, adding to the watch’s comfort

on the wrist. The case is equipped with Hublot’s patented “One Click” system, which allows easy interchangeability of

the two provided straps — one Velcro, the other natural rubber, both matching the summery hue of the case and dial

details. The closures on each strap are also made of turquoise-colored anodized aluminum, with lacquered white Hublot logos.

The Hublot Big Bang Unico Summer is limited to 200 pieces, priced at $20,900, and will initially be available for

purchase exclusively on Hublot’s e-commerce site and at the brand’s Mediterranean boutiques in Capri, Forte dei

Marmi, Mykonos, Ibiza, Bodrum, Saint-Tropex, and Monaco.
