Hublot Big Bang Unico GMT

Marina Milojević | 02.28.17 | 09:05 AM

One of the Hublot's most emblematic models, the Hublot Big Bang, now arrives equipped with a user-friendly GMT function. What makes this watch different from other traveler’s watches available on the market is the simplicity of its GMT complication, and a highly readable, neat dial.

The new Hublot Unico manufacture movement, which comes with a newly patented proprietary module, powers the Hublot Big Bang Unico GMT. Thanks to the practical innovation, it allows the wearer to update the second time zone instantly, by a simple press of the dedicated push-button. The local time is read via the conventional main hand of the watch, while a second arrow-shaped hour hand indicates the home time. The hand, which is set using the crown, also integrates a day/night indicator, providing the wearer with the most comprehensive information about world times.

The ingenuity of the GMT module developed Hublot's R&D team resides in its simplicity. It provides a simple solution to a complicated, practical indication. As Ricardo Guadalupe predicts, Hublot Big Bang Unico GMT will surely inspire many imitators. He boldly described it as the first and only GMT model that is simple enough to be really useful.

The simplified operating principle of the GMT complication is reflected in its ability to be updated instantly at the push of a button. The ingenious technical solution is married with the Big Bang’s original aesthetic and optimum legibility, resulting in a watch very easy to use and read. The two time zones share the same display space on the dial, thus providing optimum legibility. Local time is indicated via the main hand, while the arrow-shaped hand indicates the time at a 12-hour display. The graduations for the 12 hours are alternated: engraved on the dial and indexed on the bezel.

The new Big Bang Unico GMT is available in a titanium or carbon fiber version, on a ribbed black and blue natural rubber strap. Both versions measure 45 mm in diameter, and are powered by the HUB1251 movement. The self-winding, in-house caliber is driven by 358 components, and beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, boasting a 72-hour power reserve.
