Hublot – My view on the Hublot Big Bang Unico.

The Big Bang Unico is undoubtedly the most important novelty for Hublot
in 2013. Indeed, it represents better than any other watch from the
collection the strategy and the upmarket move of the brand. For many
years, the Big Bang proved to be the incarnation of the fusion of
materials  dear to Jean-Claude Biver’s heart. The mechanical side  was
not essential, Hublot focusing mostly on reliable and easy to service
7750 movements for its chronographs even if some Big Bang could be
equipped with more exclusive calibers.

Given the evolution of the watch market, it became crucial for Hublot to
have its own chronograph movement to support its growth ambition. The
Unico movement is however not only an in-house chronograph movement. It
is actually a real basic movement that can host other complications such
the display of several timezones (Unico GMT). This is why it has a
similar architecture to that of a modular movement as evidenced by the
presence of the chronograph mechanism on the dial side. Beyond  its
clever architecture  and its modularity, the Unico can allow us to enjoy
advantageously the dial openings that reveal some elements of the
chronograph mechanism like the column wheel.
