The Hublot Big Bang UNICO Magic Sapphire Watch reference 411.JX.1170.RX is one of a few sapphire crystal-cased watches Hublot produces – and to date, it is my favorite. Several years ago the first sapphire crystal-cased watch I was aware of was released by ultra-high-end watchmaker Richard Mille with a price tag of over $1,000,000. I recall seeing it for the first time in a display case – unable to be touched but interesting to look at. No, this material certainly did not look like plastic.

Some colors are far more popular in the world of watches then others. Black is always a favorite, not only for straps and dials but also for watch cases, blue is very popular this year, but what about white? We are not talking here only about the color of the dial, which remains popular, but also the cases. Then white all of a sudden becomes a rarity, although some examples do exist!

Before the ubiquity of the mobile phone, one of the most useful functions a watch could have was an alarm. These days it’s a decidedly anachronistic complication, hence the feature is most commonly associated with historic models such as the Vulcain Cricket or the Jaeger-LeCoultre Memovox. Therefore, it was something of a surprise to see Swiss Hublot Watches release their Big Bang Alarm Repeater last year, powered by their brand-new, manually wound HUB 5003 movement.
