Hublot has inaugurated the first Spirit of Big Bang into its Essential Grey line, making it available in a series of 100, on its e-commerce site. The timepiece is made from 100% titanium: including the case, bezel, screws, crown, push-pieces, case-back and folding clasp.
To preserve the timepiece’s legibility with a backdrop of grey, the Manufacture has introduced very subtle variations, notably on the date disc (window at half-past four), on the chronograph counters (minutes at 3 o'clock, hours at 6 o'clock), while playing with the multiple finishes: mirror polished, drawn lines, graining, luminescent hour markers, rhodium-plated hands and a play on the different levels of depth.
This approach ensures that all the indications on the dial are perfectly legible, while enhancing the skeleton architecture of the HUB4700 Calibre. This automatic chronograph movement is cadenced at a high frequency (5 Hz, or 36,000 vibrations per hour). It has a 50-hour power reserve.
As with certain Hublot models sold online, this digital opportunity will be coupled with the Full Hublot Service. It is activated at the very moment of sale when the watch is registered with Hublot and entitles you to have your watch fully serviced free of charge once your warranty has expired. From recovering the original finish, renewing the water-resistance, overhauling the movement and controlling the quality, the new Spirit of Big Bang Essential Grey is automatically eligible for a rejuvenating treatment as part of Hublot’s Full Service.
