HANDS-ON : Hublot Big Bang One Click Rainbow King Gold

“Living life in Hublot rainbow colours” is the refrain, and the GPHG have decided to do this, with the Big Bang One Click Rainbow as one the 2019 award’s pre-selected finalists in the ‘Jewellery’ category.

Hublot released a ‘double rainbow’ of watches in the form of the Big Bang Unico and Big Bang One Click Rainbow. The first of the two is a 45mm chronograph with a Unico movement and the latter, a time and date model. It is the latter that is the subject of today’s post.

The 99mm Big Bang case is in satin-brushed and polished 18 carat King Gold, with 473 colour gemstones, of which 48 baguette-cut ones are on the bezel and 307 on the dial. There are eight types of stones : rubies, pink sapphires, amethysts, blue sapphires, blue topazes, tsavorites, yellow sapphires, and orange sapphires.

The bezel has six H-shaped titanium screws and the lower bezel is black composite resin.

Inside is the automatic Calibre HUB1710 beating at 28,800VPH and with a power reserve of 50 hours.

Coming on a multi-coloured ‘gummy’ strap (a combination of rubber and alligator) with the patented ‘One Click’ interchangeable strap system on an 18 carat King Gold and black-plated titanium deployant clasp, the Reference 465.OX.9910.LR.0999 has an RRP of CHF 78,000 including taxes.
