Hublot has cre­ated 500 Big Bang Unico Sap­phire mod­els that were cut from blocks of sap­phire — the first time that the gem­stone has ever been cut “on such a large scale”, ac­cord­ing to the Swiss mar­que. Af­ter its am­bi­tious MP05 LaFer­rari Sap­phire project, Hublot is as­sert­ing its ex­per­tise in sap­phire-cut­ting with this col­lec­tion of ab­so­lute trans­parency. The case mid­dle, bezel and back of the Big Bang Unico Sap­phire are cut out of sap­phire, which is al­most as hard and scratchre­sis­tant as di­a­mond. Only a few pieces form­ing the spine of the watch are made from ti­ta­nium. Its skele­ton dial, made from trans­par­ent resin, re­veals all the gears of the pro­pri­etary Unico HUB1242 move­ment and its fin­ishes. The time­piece is wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 50m.
