Hublot Introduces Big Bang Unico Magic Sapphire

Hublot simplifies the construction of its sapphire crystal watch case.

First introduced last year, the Hublot Big Bang in clear sapphire returns with a new and improved case construction that’s been simplified and streamlined.

While the Big Bang Unico Magic Sapphire retains the recognisable design of the Big Bang – it remains the same size at 45mm in diameter – the case eliminates the titanium parts of the earlier model, as well as the multi-part construction of the bezel and case back.

This increases the transparency of the watch case, while making it easier to put together and more robust. That being said, the Big Bang Unico Magic Sapphire is water-resistant to 50m, instead of the 100m offered by its predecessor.

The movement inside remains the HUB 1242, an automatic calibre with a modular chronograph that has a flyback function.

Price and availability 

The Big Bang Unico Magic Sapphire (ref. 411.JX.1170.RX) is limited to 500 watches, priced at US$57,900 or €57,100.
