A completely integrated look: A new fusion for the Big Bang

15 years after its creation, the Big Bang features its FIRST integrated metal bracelet, with the first link fused with the case

An integrated bracelet means a restyled case. A single, unique piece featuring integrated architecture; a fusion of technology and style for the wrist. A watch that embodies the spirit of Hublot, with its iconic use of black ceramic, King Gold or titanium. The new launch consists of three models, including a 500-piece limited edition All Black version dedicated to the “invisible visibility” concept introduced in 2006.

2020 – The year of the integrated bracelet

In 2020, to mark its 15th anniversary, the Big Bang is available for the first time in its history with a tailored integrated bracelet which sits perfectly against the skin. So perfectly, in fact, that to look at the Big Bang Integral – with a visual harmony resulting from absolute proportions – you would think that it had always existed. Its aesthetic signature is powerful enough for it to be instantly associated with that of the Big Bang. Three links: one central and two lateral; in that respect, at least, a standard bracelet. But then its sharp style adopts the codes of the case, with edges that not only echo the aesthetic of the pushers but also the architecture of the middle with is cutouts. The polished and satin-finished surfaces, and the bevelling and chamfering of the links, create the same effect of depth and contrast as between the case and the bezel lug.

Of course, an integrated bracelet means a redesigned case. While its dial and bezel are identical to the existing Big Bang 42 mm model – with the exception of the indices which replace the Arabic numerals – its pushers return to the codes of the original model from 2005. It is these pushers which inspired the style of the bracelet, with their interplay of angles and chamfers and alternating polished and satin finishes punctuating the watch, from the middle to the bracelet.

King Gold, a unique alloy of gold, copper and platinum which results in an intensely red 18-carat gold and is exclusive to Hublot

The Big Bang Integral retains its iconic “sandwich” construction, this time without the composite resin insert, with the watch crafted entirely from one material – Titanium, King Gold, or Ceramic. The only exceptions are the black composite resin lugs on its bezel and the crown overmoulded with rubber. It is released in three materials inextricably linked to the history of Hublot: lightweight titanium, hardwearing, scratch-proof ceramic (500 pieces) and King Gold, a unique alloy of gold, copper and platinum which results in an intensely red 18-carat gold and is exclusive to Hublot.
