Hublot Limited Edition Review - Hublot Big Bang Replica For Sale
Two years on, and two years ahead of the next FIFA World Cup, Hublot is now announcing generation two of their foray into connected watches with the Hublot Big Bang Replica. The piece is 42mm produced to the same exacting standards applied in the production of any other mechanical Big Bang. The case is said to be made out of 42 components, 27 of which are dedicated to a cage that holds the connected watch's electronic brains in place.
The watch was the result of a request from FIFA for Hublot to design a watch that would be useful for referees during game time. The Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup RussiaTM was a limited-edition of 2018 pieces and had all of the latest and greatest technology available to smartwear devices at the time. Of course, the watch having the silhouette of the Big Bang, was easily identifiable as a Hublot creation, even from a distant.
The Hublot Big Bang Replica will be available in titanium and ceramic, with a 12-hour scale that's metalized on the bezel of the watch and protected under the sapphire crystal, which also holds the AMOLED high definition touchscreen.
Hublot's opted to power the Hublot Big Bang Replica with Wear OS by Google, upon which the Swiss watchmaker has implemented some of its own knowhow. For instance, beyond just an analogue time display, they've programed a high precision moonphase display for their perpetual calendar and a GMT time zone time display that utilizes a realistic view of the earth. All of the watch connected watch's functions are adjustable directly using the AMOLED touch screen and the crown.
There is yet another Hublot touch to the Hublot Big Bang Replica. Progressively the watchmaker will be working with their ambassadors and Friends of the Brand to release exclusive dial designs. At launch the connected watch will have a series of eight dials designed by artist Marc Ferrero.
Ferrero's eight dials will be programed to swap out every three hours, cycling through all eight dials over a 24-hour period. Each dial is designed with a color and theme in mind: Happy Yellow, Magic Blue, Orange Dynamite, All White, Lucky Green, Magic Red, Rainbow Spirit and Black Magic.
But here's perhaps the biggest news: The Hublot Big Bang Replica will be the first in Hublot's history to be available to buy online over the brand's website as well as on the WeChat, in China. It will then be available to purchase in boutiques and the traditional network.
Speaking about the launch, CEO Ricardo Guadalupe said, electronic watches were created in Switzerland using quartz in the 1970s. Fifty years later, we are continuing in the same innovative vein by producing a second smart watch which boasts an extremely high level of technological sophistication, whilst embodying all the aesthetic values, technical features and excellence that have ensured the reputation of our Big Bang collection. Ever more faithful to our Art of Fusion motto, we wanted to unite Hublot's highly advanced technical materials with the very latest innovations from today's digital world.
