Hublot perfectly combines natural rubber and precious metal materials. The name of Hublot HUBLOT is derived from the design of ship portholes. When I came to Hublot in 2004, I wanted to revive the brand’s principle of reconstruction and then add modern elements. Thus, Hublot spanned 24 years in just one year, and Big Bang was born. ‘——Jean-Claude Beaver; Ricardo Guadalupe
‘Big Bang’ will soon be reminiscent of the era in which the ancestors lived and the Big Bang. It was because of the big bang and various elements that the universe and the planet we lived in-Earth. No matter it is life or time, everything is born in the moment of breaking ground in the flood, it symbolizes a new world and a new future. Therefore, in 2005, the current Chairman of the Hublot Board of Directors, Mr. Jean-Claude Beaver and the current CEO of Hublot, Ricardo Guadalupe, decided to name their first collection of watches as ‘ ‘Big Bang’ is no accident. In fact, Hublot’s Big Bang series is also synonymous with its own rebirth, creation and revival: revolutionary design, revolutionary material fusion and Hublot’s new brand philosophy, all with the birth of Big Bang in April 2005 Ushered in a great turn. The traditional Swiss watch art and contemporary passion embodied in Hublot have emerged as a new starting point.
A true ‘art of fusion’ from the universe
Since the establishment of Hublot in 1980, the detailed design of Hublot watches has continuously evolved. Only the appearance of the watch adheres to the first watch’s interpretation of the word HUBLOT-the porthole. The birth of Big Bang was inspired by Hublot’s original design in 1980: the shape of the round case, the screws were reactivated, and the strap was still made of natural rubber. While Hublot has undergone revolutionary changes, it has maintained continuity. Just like everything in nature that is constantly evolving at any moment, Hublot has always adhered to the concept of innovation, and is also committed to connecting the past and the future: research and development of ultra-light materials, creating new colors … Hublot has an infinite future.
In 2005, Big Bang brought the “explosion” effect to Hublot and the entire watchmaking industry
Round and large dial
The bezel structure is significantly embossed above the case
Six H-shaped screws running through the case bring memories of the porthole
The Big Bang series is Hublot’s perfect interpretation of the concept of fusion. The large-size dial is equipped with a bezel with a sharp angle and a sharp-angled case. This proportion is exactly the basis of the beautiful shape.
Watches should have mechanical beauty and dynamic beauty, and strike a balance between the two. While the contour lines reflect the characteristics and personality of the watch, the use of color and materials is also crucial. Therefore, the design of the BIG BANG series fully considers the consideration of porthole shape and fusion philosophy: the straight line reflects the modern style, the color reflects the philosophical tendency of Hublot, and the material shows the technical level. Each part of the watch is constructed with deep lines. While using various materials such as ceramics, rose gold, natural rubber, etc., pay attention to the different colors of the material itself and use different processes on the same material to achieve a richer level of visual effects . This visual image of the harmony of lines and materials makes BIG BANG’s design memorable and has become the focus of attention once it was launched at the 2005 Basel Watch & Jewellery Exhibition.
The first surprise is Big Bang’s outstanding appearance. A close look at its structure can not help but appreciate its perfection in detail, and the elements that have been repeatedly reviewed and designed are perfectly integrated with the whole, giving a pleasing visual impact. The number of screws is reduced to six, which is more eye-catching and impressive while showing the personality of the bezel-the screws no longer serve as a point of time or decoration, but instead take on the structure that penetrates and stabilizes the entire sandwich body The essential. The design of the dial is extremely simple, with oversized timepieces, digital mixed hour markers and graduations. The modern visual effect highlights the distinctive temperament and is unforgettable.
Looking closely at the case, you will notice the different materials fused in parallel. For example, rose gold / king gold case, ceramic bezel, titanium buttons, Kevlar fiber inserts in the body structure. In fact, since the birth of Hublot, it has continued to build its own unique watchmaking philosophy by matching gold (from the earth) and natural rubber (from tropical trees) and exploring the concept of fusion between mineral and plant elements. And the art of fusion does not just happen in the above two fields. The sky and the earth, the universe and the earth, the past and the future, the tradition and the innovation also merge from time to time. Therefore, the Big Bang series makes a variety of materials collide, and uses the design rooted in the brand to fully display the art of fusion. Finally, a natural rubber strap with a variety of patterns, such as ribbing and smoothness, allows the wrist to enjoy a unique, comfortable and comfortable touch.
In the autumn of 2005, the Big Bang series won many international awards as soon as it came out: ‘The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève’ won the prestigious ‘Best Design Prize’; Since then, he has won the ‘Sports Watch Prize’ at the ‘Watch of the Year’ ceremony held in Japan, and the ‘Best Watch of the Year’ editor’s choice in Bahrain. ‘Oversized Watch.’
The evolution of BIG BANG
After the spectacular 2005, the Big Bang series still maintains its unique appearance, and has released a variety of sizes, supplemented by complex such as tourbillon, large calendar display, power reserve indicator and dual chase chronograph. Craft.

Today, the Hublot brand has introduced watchmaking materials from the new era, such as Kevlar fiber, carbon fiber, ceramics, titanium, etc. The concept of fusion is also moving forward: the classic materials used in the watchmaking tradition are fused Fusion with new materials from new technology. The new alloy material was independently developed by the Hublot watch factory. Wang Jin, Magic Gold, and Magic Red Ceramics are all contrary to the tradition of applying materials produced by industrial machinery to watchmaking. Instead, the watchmaking industry first developed new materials. Widely used in other industries. Such technological developments have also made it possible for designers and engineers to imagine revolutionary styles by using new materials. This is exactly how Hublot merged when designing the Big Bang-the fusion of Swiss watchmaking tradition and the 21st century. Big Bang showcased Hublot’s amazing design capabilities and perfectly interpreted the innovative ‘fused art’: insightful artistic creativity, the fusion of new materials, and the fusion of Swiss traditional watchmaking technology and high-tech in the 21st century.
