Hublot loves to experiment with material in watchmaking, which makes materials such as ceramic, an integral part of brand’s watch design. Now for 2021, Swiss watchmaker has a carbon fiber variant of a Big Bang Tourbillon, which is definitely going to have some collectors on their toes.
The new Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon Carbon White as it is called, adds a very different flair to the style and material of the Big Bang Tourbillon concept. The case is presented in tonneau-shape that accentuates the already fantastic dial.
Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon Carbon White is presented in a 42mm carbon fiber case which along with the bezel features white micro-glass fibers that gives the watch an interesting marble-style effect.
The clean and elegant bezel is etched with H-shaped screws. The tourbillon dial has a timekeeping section at 3 o’clock position which features the hour and minute hands. Interestingly, the very unique five-day power reserve indicator is positioned at 8 o’clock and the tourbillon cage – that makes one full rotation every minute – is placed at the 6 o’clock position.
Movement and availability
The Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon Carbon White is powered by Hublot’s own HUB6020 hand-wound movement. The skeleton tourbillon movement offers a massive 115 hour power reserve (roughly five days reserve). The watch will come paired with a complementing white rubber strap with black seam.
Featuring Hublot’s one-click system, the rubber strap is easily interchangeable, just in case you want to change the look to suit the day’s attire. Unfortunately, the watch is very limited – only 100 examples will be made – and will be available for $94,700.
