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.
Hublot Men's Watches
A classic among Hublot’s classics, the Hublot Classic Fusion Watches collection nevertheless continues to push the envelope even if, when it was launched at Baselworld in 2010, five years after the audacious Big Bang, it was specifically designed to be conservative. The concept of fusion, an important idea for the company, brings contemporary materials such as ceramic and titanium to these models inspired by Hublot’s very first watches from the 1980s.
