Insert the orange pun here.
LVMH cheap Watch Week continues the orange fever dream from Hublot, that is, the Big Bang Tourbillon automatic orange sapphire. Although we have seen many different, colored sapphire case watches from Hublot, the brand said that this is the first time that orange gemstones have been used in this way, and the effect is at least amazing. The bright orange case is coated with titanium and chrome, and the peach of this Hublot watch is still rocking a new partially transparent self-winding and tourbillon movement.
The transparent sapphire case of this Hublot has a diameter of 45 mm and a thickness of 15.3 mm. It is certainly not so Clementine in size and more like a navy, but I think the aesthetics are quite successful-in a crazy way . The satin finish of the movement and the industrial feel of the sandblasted elements match the orange vitality well. In addition, the triple sapphire bridge enhances the openness and brightness of the internal structure. The sapphire bridge supports the dial and movement structure, while focusing your attention on the tourbillon and ingenious clockwork.
The caliber in question is cheap Hublot‘s new product MHUB6035, which has a frequency of 3 Hz and a power reserve of 72 hours (not to mention the large one-minute tourbillon at six o’clock). In addition, the micro-rotor is located on the dial side (you can see it at 12) and has a Hublot signature and skeletonized clockwork quality, which should provide further animation when worn on the wrist.
Considering the complete sapphire case and the new tourbillon movement, this is not an “entry level” Big Bang, so the price is certain, at least to some extent. For this huge amount of money in the true sense, you did get a very limited creation and a very complicated and equally orange watch.
