Right at first glance you will notice this Hublot Big Bang is unlike any other exotic watch from Hublot. The first of it’s kind, this Big Bang Unico Bi-Retrograde Chrono was specially designed for the world of football. The centered chrono integrates the FIFA World Cup colors for the seconds and minute hands. Hublot also designed the brains of the case to hold the 2014 World Cup icon known worldwide.
It took about 18 months of research and development in order to manufacture the new automatic HUB1260 movement. This exotic watch has a red line at the 45 second/minute mark to signify one half of a football match. Clever huh. Hublot even incorporate a green push-button from the FIFA logo.
The Big Bang is offered in both Rose Gold and Black cases, personally I would take the Rose Gold. Which do you prefer?
