Designed and produced in-house, by the Hublot R&D team, this invention has been patented. A triple tour de force, the coloured ceramic is innovative in both the material itself and the manufacturing process. In addition to the vibrant colour, it is also harder than conventional ceramics.
Big Bang Unico 42mm

Fully designed, developed, machined and assembled by Hublot’s own engineers, micro-mechanics and watchmakers, this chronograph movement went under the codename of Unico HUB 1242. Five years on, the watchmakers from the Nyon manufacture have reworked the structure to offer the all new Unico movement that’s considerably slimmer; giving it perfect dimensions for the 42mm case of the new Big Bang.
