The Unico is Hublot’s centerpiece movement, so it makes sense that the Big Bang Unico is also Hublot’s signature watch. However, at 45mm, the Big Bang Unico is a big watch and not many can pull off a watch of that size on their wrists. Fortunately, Hublot Watches 5 Million Replica now has a smaller version of the Big Bang Unico. This is the new Hublot Big Bang Unico 42mm.

Introduced in 2010, the Unico movement is arguably Hublot’s most important as it sees action in many of their watches. However, it is a large movement, which prevents it from being fitted into a smaller case. Recognizing that there’s a demand for a smaller Big Bang Unico watch, Hublot Watches Quartz Replica spent the last few years reducing the size of its calibre HUB 1242 so that it can be fitted in a smaller case. The end result is the new calibre HUB1280.
The impressive thing here is that despite being a more compact movement, the calibre HUB1280 retains the key characteristics of the calibre HUB1242. The column wheel is still visible from the dial side and the movement still has a double clutch mechanism. This is crucial since these features are what define the Big Bang Unico.
The downsizing was achieved by using a flatter self-winding system. This allowed Hublot to shave 1.3mm off the height of the movement. Because of the more compact movement, Hublot was not only able to reduce the diameter of the case from 45mm to 42mm, it was also able to reduce its thickness from 15.45mm to 14.5mm. It might not sound like much, but every millimeter matters and can find a dramatic effect on how it wears on the wrist.
Another nod to the club is that the Chelsea lion in gold in 12 o’clock. The applied hour markers are rhodium-plated and full of white luminescent material. Likewise, the rhodium-plated hour and minute hands will also be full of white luminescent material to help legibility in dimly-lit environments. Completing the dial is a date window at 4:30. The movement inside is the grade HUB4100, which is really based on an ETA 2894 or Sellita equal and fitted with a chronograph module. Obviously, an in-house Hublot Watches World Poker Tour Replica Unico movement could have been preferred and would have made the watch more desirable, however, the HUB4100 is a dependable mix and it will help keep the cost down, if only a little. The motion is visible through the watch’s delicate display caseback on which a symbol of the crest of this club is printed.Like a season’s Classic Fusion Chronograph Chelsea FC watch, this new Big Bang Chelsea FC watch was created specifically for Chelsea fanatics. Compared to last year’s version, this brand new watch comes in a color of blue which I think is more true and faithful to the house colors of the club. The Hublot Big Bang Chelsea FC watch is limited to 200 pieces and is priced at #13,000 (now roughly $17,000).Each year at Munich, the steins are filled (and re-filled), and the guys don their brief leather breeches to celebrate Oktoberfest. This year, Hublot combined the festivities by partnering with local tanner Meindl to create a clearly Bavarian incarnation of its popular Big Bang watch which has had so many versions resulting from several collaborations. The Hublot Big Bang Bavaria is the initial Big Bang to include a bronze instance, and it appears as though the material was chosen for its rustic colour and properties to match the hand-embroidered bull leather strap in the Bund design, evoking a link with all the Italian region of Bavaria’s traditional garb.
It has taken a while, but it’s nice to see that Hublot Watches And Their Prices Replica has finally put out a smaller and perhaps more wearable version of its Big Bang Unico watch. The more compact and slimmer dimensions are much welcomed, but one has to wonder if it is really small enough for most people to wear? After all, 42mm still makes it a fairly large watch and I can’t help but wonder if 40mm would be better. At any rate, the Hublot Big Bang Unico 42mm is available in four versions, titanium, titanium and ceramic, king gold, and king gold ceramic, and is priced at $17,800, $18,800, $36,700, and $33,600 respectively. hublot.com
