Big Bang Wristwatch Blows My Mind
July 26th, 2007
While it might not be the easiest watch to read, there’s no denying the sheer awesomeness of this luxuriant wristwatch from Hublot.
The appropriately named Big Bang 44mm All Black Carat watch may have traditional analog dials, but its design is anything but conservative. Featuring an all black face with all black dials, it’s just too cool for words.
The self-winding chronograph is made using incredibly high-end parts, including a ceramic case made from the same materials used in Formula 1 race cars. A precision Swiss movement made from 252 individual components means you’ll never drop a second of time.
Oh yeah, you might not notice them at first, but those little trapezoids gracing the watch’s 18-carat white gold bezel are actually 48 individual black diamonds, totaling 2.8 carats in weight. With a street price of around $47,000, it’s out of reach for us mere mortals. For the rest of us, we’ll just look and drool.
