Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon All Black

Posted by wristwatch on July 3, 2007

This Big Bang evokes the famous Chaplin’s film “Modern Times”.

Resulting from the blending of traditional watch-making know-how and futuristic design of subtle black lines, it is provocative, robust and free.

The carbon fibre design, simulating a two-wheel gear-train shape, is brought to the fore on the index-free dial; its sharp and salient angles contrasting with the curves of the Tourbillon cage.

Transparency and black invisibility are illuminated by the rubies in the Tourbillon movement in a harmony of contrasts, with a fusion of ceramic, titanium, carbon, steel and rubber.
