In recent years, breakthroughs in watch case materials have become more and more obvious, and more and more black technology, from the original ceramics, titanium metal, carbon fiber, to the sapphire that is now popular, let The traditional stereotype of watches has changed a lot. Sapphire is a very popular but scarce case material in recent years. This is not because sapphire is scarce, but because it is very difficult to process the case into sapphire, resulting in scarcity of sapphire case. However, you can see this article, which shows that you also have good luck. Hublot launched a Big Bang Unico watch with a transparent sapphire case earlier this year. We just arrived at the Hublot Oriental Xintiandi flagship store on the day We don’t know beforehand, so if you are interested, you should hurry up.

This watch was launched during this year’s Geneva watch exhibition. Although Hublot did not participate in SIHH, Hublot did not stop launching new products. The case was made of sapphire, which was highly transparent, coupled with the central dark gray movement and dial surface. There are white luminous scales and hands, and a semi-hollowed-out dial surface, which has a strong sense of technology. We all know that sapphire is very hard, second only to diamonds. Because of this, it is very difficult to process, so that many brands are not watches that do not want to produce sapphire cases, but they are not able to produce, because the processing is difficult, so the cost It is also high, which will inevitably lead to a very high price, coupled with its strong sense of technology, which is inconsistent with the positioning of many brands. Therefore, there are only a few brands with sapphire cases.

Similarly, the strap has a grooved interface. The connecting piece has a circular rod-shaped groove at the bottom. When the strap connecting piece is inserted into the detachable structure, the internal round shaft will be embedded in the groove. It is actually not difficult to fix the strap. The difficulty is the original Design and conception. This system is very convenient to use and matches the overall design of the case.
The watch is equipped with Hublot’s self-made UNICO HUB124 self-winding chronograph movement with a column wheel clutch system. It is worth mentioning that the watch’s chronograph operation feels very light, and the operation of pressing the chronograph and returning to zero is easy and bright. The whole movement is plated in black, which contrasts with the transparent sapphire case, highlighting the uniqueness of high-tech watchmaking.
