Hublot Big Bang MECA-10

Hublot has cre­ated a new man­u­fac­ture move­ment, the skele­ton man­ual-wind­ing HUB1201 with 10- day power re­serve. Per­for­mance notwith­stand­ing, its orig­i­nal and stylised assem­bly is a big part of the of­fer. The Big Bang MECA-10’S open dial shows the move­ment’s atyp­i­cal ar­chi­tec­ture that re­sem­bles the build­ing- block com­po­nents of child­hood Mec­cano toy kits. How­ever, the func­tional fo­cus re­mains on the lengthy power re­serve in­di­cated by two dis­plays. The first is a crown gear marked with sten­cil- cut nu­mer­als, and the sec­ond is a cir­cu­lar plate set with H-style screws that re­veals red dur­ing the last two days of the move­ment’s charge. There’s a third “in­di­ca­tor”; the po­si­tion of the rack and pin­ions them­selves at the top of the dial gives a pretty ac­cu­rate gauge, with the rack grad­u­ally mov­ing right as the move­ment winds down. The MECA-10 is avail­able in in­dus­trial ti­ta­nium or full black PVD, the lat­ter a trib­ute to Hublot’s 10 years of All Black con­cept.
