Hublot Big Bang “Gold Mat”

Big Bang Gold Mat a new colour gold for a new best seller

The Watch Quote™ - April 10th, 2007



The gold colour in this new Hublot creation seems to merge with the hues of golden sand dunes. The pink gold doesn’t sparkle, it blazes, as if all the light has been absorbed and is gently diffused. A new treatment and finishing method inspired by techniques used in the aviation, marine and automotive industries has thus given rise to a brand new shade of gold. In this Big Bang, Hublot, an expert in the art of fusion, unites the simplicity of natural elements and the complexity of state-of-the-art technologies.

Jean-Claude Biver, who presides over the destiny of the brand of kings side by side since 2004 with its founder Carlo Crocco, has breathed new life into the Hublot concept, while preserving the essential DNA and going back to its guiding principles. He has introduced new treatment of materials, for rose gold, platinum and tantalium and he create three new Big Bang.

With faultless technical specifications, a meticulously studied marketing and pricing position, a long and successful career is shaping up for this latest “enfant terrible” from that magician of watch making, Monsieur Jean-Claude Biver.
