Last year Hublot released its first Big Bang Integral Ceramic watch and it was a real treat – the first ever Big Bang with an integrated bracelet for increased sporting practicality and with the accompanying sporty aesthetic. But it seems that it’s a gift that keeps on giving as it’s now available in three new and stylish colours. The original was a plain black but joining the roster are a crisp white, stellar navy blue and rich grey.
The Big Bang Integral Ceramic is of course based on the regular Big Bang Integral, which included the original black ceramic version. Much is the same with the new re-colours, both from a design standpoint and the tech inside.
It still has the calibre Unico 1280 with all the technical advancement that brought and it maintains its bold sport-luxe look with the integrated bracelet, which is still a really nice addition.
However, while the initial ceramic model was somewhat a novelty alongside two seemingly more serious metal versions, the new Integral Ceramics take things to another level by showing Hublot’s mastery of the material. It’s incredibly tough and lightweight, being up to three times more scratch resistant than steel and a third lighter, making it a new Hublot signature.
Adding a range of colours options to this already nice watch can only make it more desirable. It’s pleasant to wear, being soft on the skin and with a low thermal conductivity and now you can match it to even more occasions and outfits than before.
