Hublot Big Bang Unico Titanium Ceramic Luxury Watch Review

http://www.thewatchbox.com The Hublot Big Bang Titanium Ceramic has it all. It's the latest 45mm Hublot Big Bang, the bezel is hewn from nearly scratch proof ceramic, and the case is crafted from motorsports-inspired titanium. What’s under the hood? Naturally, it’s an in-house Unico chronograph movement. Hublot brought a great deal of its own engineering and styling chops to the table for this, the second generation of the famed Hublot Big Bang. The Big Bang case, which made its name as a virtual gallery of fused exotic materials, here sports brushed titanium, composite resin, carbon fiber, natural rubber, and black ceramic. Ceramic deserves a special shout-out. Kiln-fired, polished on its flanks, and brushed on its crest, the ceramic bezel grants this Hublot Big Bang Unico special resilience in the face of offending knocks. Nearly as scratch-resistant as sapphire crystal, ceramic sets itself apart from old-school metallic bezels that end their days looking like NYC cabs after rush hour. Only diamonds can reliably scuff ceramic. The Unico movement packs a 72-hour power reserve, automatic winding, a crisp column wheel function selector, maintenance-free ceramic rotor bearings, and a PVD gray structure that looks as sharp as it operates. It's designed, built, and refined by Hublot expressly for the company's flagship Big Bang and King Power models. The strap is an exquisite color-keyed combination of alcantara technical suede and natural rubber; Hublot's push-button strap release permits 10-second do-it-yourself strap swaps to change the “shoes” on the Big Bang Unico Titanium Ceramic when the urge strikes. This Hublot Big Bang Unico Titanium Ceramic is available from thewatchbox.com with all Hublot Boutique factory accessories including the famous Hublot “porthole” display box, full packaging, manuals, and documentation.
