In the early years of work, I was running around the front line. At that time, there were often occasions where I had to wear a suit, and sometimes I had to wear a suit on business trips. Later, he retreated behind the scenes, and his suits, shirts and shoes were all pressed against the bottom of the box to eat ashes. It is no exaggeration to say that I haven’t worn a shirt for many, many years. In my bones, I like fashion and cool, and it can be said that I have returned to my true colors.
Dress wholesale watches, I used to wear them often, but now I play with them, but I rarely wear them. It’s not that there is anything wrong with the dress watch, it’s just that it doesn’t match my current outfit. Instead, RICHARD MILLE, Roger Dubuis, and Hublot, such cool watches, are more suitable for the current situation.
RICHARD MILLE million level, I can’t afford it; Roger Dubuis calf level, the public price starts at 350,000, the price is not low; the public price of Hublot’s big explosion is more than 100,000, which is relatively easy to accept, for a long time Here, Hublot has become the first choice. Some players may say, for the price of 10, 200,000, is it not fragrant for you to wear Rolex or Vacheron Constantin? It’s not bad, it’s just a personal preference.
Hublot Big Bang Integral Ceramic, the official name is Big Bang Integral, that is, the Hublot Big Bang with a ceramic case and a ceramic bracelet. Prior to the Hublot Big Bang, it was mainly equipped with tape. This is the first time that it is equipped with a ceramic bracelet, and uses the integrated design of the watch head and the bracelet. It is an all-ceramic watch.
There are many ceramic watches on the market now. Among the mainstream watches, the Chanel J12, Omega Seamaster/Speedmaster, IWC Pilot, Blancpain 50 Fathoms, etc. are all popular. The hardness of ceramics is high, and the processing is more time-consuming than 18K gold and steel shells. For ceramic watches with lower public prices, the case handling is relatively simple. When it comes to a ceramic watch with a level of hundreds of thousands, the complexity of the ceramic shell and the ceramic chain will increase.
The Hublot Big Bang itself has a complicated case structure, with multiple layers on the top, middle and bottom, and many corners of the case. The bezel and the wide bevel of the case are all polished, giving the watch a lot of reflective surfaces. The watch bezel, the front and sides of the case are all brushed, and the polished surface forms a light and dark effect. Before Hublot’s big bang, round chronograph buttons were used, and on this one-piece ceramic, they were replaced by square buttons.
Bracelet of big bang one-piece ceramic, complex structure. Each ceramic link has multiple facets, the upper plane is brushed, the bevels are polished all around, and each corner is decorated. For many ceramic watches, only the head is ceramic, and the strap is a belt or tape, because a ceramic bracelet is composed of many ceramic blocks, and it is time-consuming to fine-tune it.
The big bang integrated ceramic is an integrated design of the watch head and the bracelet. The connection between the ceramic shell and the ceramic chain forms a large inclination angle, so that the watch head and the bracelet are integrated. The tape version has small protruding screws at the four corners (the screws for the quick release strap function) at the connection, which is not as smooth as the one-piece ceramic.
Hublot Big Bang, there are two main sizes, 44/45 and 42. The big bang one-piece ceramic is 42 mm, which is a moderate size in a sports watch. Moreover, the big bang one-piece ceramic further controls the thickness of the case. Due to the thinning of the movement, the thickness of the watch has also decreased, remaining at 13.45mm. In the automatic chronograph, the thickness of more than 13 mm is already OK. After getting started, it is also very comfortable. I personally feel that the ceramic chain feels slippery, which is more comfortable than tape. Tape can be boring sometimes.
Among the mainstream Swiss watches, Hublot’s ceramic technology is currently in a leading position. Someone interviewed the former president of Patek Philippe (the current president, Tereston’s father), and asked if Patek Philippe would make ceramic watches. He said no, the reason is that brands like Hublot are very advanced in ceramics, and there is no need for Patek Philippe to dabble. Hublot has mastered a variety of colored ceramics, red, yellow, blue, green, gray, Tiffany blue, beige, ceramic technology than other famous watch brands.
The disk surface of the Hublot Big Bang has always been hollowed out in a large area. The Hublot logo is printed on the sapphire mirror surface. You can see the various parts of the movement below, and the movement is directly used as the dial. Because the UNICO automatic chronograph movement used by Hublot Big Bang is a modular chronograph movement, the column wheel and horizontal clutch of the timing module are all on the dial side, including the calendar ring, which can be seen from the dial. Above the time scale at 6 o’clock, the petal-shaped wheel is a columnar wheel; the radiating texture on the disc surface at 8 o’clock is the timing clutch gear. When the chronograph is started, the operation of the column wheel and the clutch gear can be seen from the dial.
Hublot big bang one-piece ceramic, using the latest UNICO 2 generation movement. Compared with the UNICO 1st generation, the biggest improvement of the 2nd generation movement is that the thickness of the movement is reduced by 1.3 mm, thus reducing the thickness of the entire watch. At the same time, technically, the second-generation UNICO movement was replaced with a new clutch gear with elastic teeth, manufactured by photolithography. The new elastic clutch gear can reduce the shock jitter of the horizontal clutch mechanism when the clutch gear and the central chronograph gear mesh, ensuring that the central chronograph second hand does not vibrate or jump forward when starting. Other data has not changed, the swing frequency is 28800 times/hour, the power is 72 hours, and there is a flyback function. 9 o’clock is the small seconds, 3 o’clock is the 60-minute counter.
In terms of details, the movement column wheel and the speed hand are engraved with the Hublot “H” logo as a decoration. Hublot’s big bang focuses on modern hollow style, so the movement does not have traditional watchmaking Geneva stripes, pearl patterns and other decorations, but uses hollow, brushed, sandblasted, PVD color plating as decoration. The overall effect is very cool.
The Hublot Big Bang integrated ceramic has surpassed the price of many 18K gold watches in mainstream watches. But among the main cool watches, compared to RICHARD MILLE and Roger Dubuis, the Hublot Big Bang is the easiest to get started with.
When I first came into contact with famous watches, I also started playing with traditional watchmaking and antique watches (the kind of antique Omega). Not only was there no cool style at that time, but even Roger Dubuis was still the old traditional watchmaking style, which was different from now. A few years ago, cool styles became popular. RM, Roger Dubuis, and Hublot were all bursting with hands and highly recognizable. They were completely different from traditional watchmaking. I fell in love with them all at once.
