About Hublot Big Bang UNICO 45mm Watch

by Administrator

The original 44mm wide size of the Big Bang was starting to seem small a few years ago. Hublot wearers wanted something larger, and oftentimes women were found wearing 41mm and 44mm wide Big Bang watches. Hublot had been planning a follow-up to the Big Bang for sometime, but it took them a few years. The first major hurdle was the complexity of in-house production. For a while Biver wanted to outfit the Big Bang with an in-house made Hublot movement. Big Bang watches used modified versions of the Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750. Decent movements of course, they were nevertheless rather ordinary and were often attacked as not being exclusive enough for a watch priced like a Big Bang.







Hublot began to produce some extremely high-end movements in-house in around 2010 after famed movement maker BNB Concept shutdown due to a lack of paying customers (due to the recession). When the company shutdown after declaring bankruptcy, Biver purchased many of the company's assets (including machinery) and hired the lead designer (Mathias Buttet) to work for Hublot. Buttet, never a "money guy" has been quite happy at Hublot and is currently in charge of developing their most high-end creations. He and/or his machines from BNB Concept helped in the development and eventual production of the Hublot UNICO - an in-house movement whose goal it was to replace 7750 movements in Big Bang watches - replica Hublot Big Bang UNICO.

The UNICO was meant to be the higher-volume in-house movement that Hublot needed (next to its small production of in-house tourbillons, etc...). However, the UNICO took a long time to develop, and suffered some delays as Hublot perfected the materials used in the movement. Early versions of the UNICO for example were planned to have carbon fiber main plates. It was an ambitious concept that was in fact used in some watches, but apparently didn't turn out to be something that Hublot could produce in large quantities from about 2011-2012.
