Bold Is Beautiful
While many people use their phones to tell time, mechanical timepieces are still practical and necessary for many people, either as an expression or an actual need. Hublot has always strived to design timepieces that fill needs for those wanting to make a statement, as well as those looking for craftsmanship and aesthetic beauty. This latest creation from the brand, the Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow is a true testament to the brand’s unique designs as well as the quality material and finishing expertise.
ROY G BIV
This amazing and dazzling new timepiece is certainly a statement in design, and specifically its case. The very exquisite angular 45 mm case has been crafted in 18k King Gold alloy, and then decorated with 100 precious gemstones. While the process of this design is both labor intensive and requires considerable precision, this timepiece is even more difficult because of the overall effect the brand is striving for. You have or may remember the school teaching for remembering the rainbow, ROY G BIV, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet, and now you can use it for this beautiful timepiece. To achieve the rainbow effect here for the Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow timepiece each stone is placed to create a perfect spectrum. Every stone individually placed, the ruby, pink sapphire, blue sapphire, amethyst, blue topaz, savorite, yellow sapphire, and orange sapphire, as well as selected for specific color that creates that spectrum. The mounting of the stones is in a invisible setting as to not interfere with the pattern. After these gemstones are placed, an additional 112 baguette cut stones are mounted around the polished bezel to continue the spectrum pattern. To complete the magnificent design, a sapphire display caseback provides for a clear view of the inner movement.
Meticulous and Mesmerizing
While this mesmerizing timepiece is dazzling to look at, the pattern of the case is continued with the skeleton dial and accents the matte King Gold framework with 48 more gemstones that surround the chronograph subdials and hour markers. The construction of the timepiece is contrasted with mainly black bridges which enhances the colorful array of the entire piece. Hublot powers this beauty with the in house UNICO automatic flyback chronograph movement. While many might expect a matching bracelet for this stunner, the brand has finished off the watch with a rainbow gradient alligator leather strap, lined with black rubber. It is a design choice that sets off the spectrum of the case and keeps design elements strong. That strap might seem plain, until you see the black plated titanium buckle that features 30 more rainbow gemstones. The attitude and attraction of this Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow timepiece is undeniable and with such meticulous and exquisite finishing it is a showstopper without a doubt. A rainbow like one would never forget.
