Hublot has unveiled a new Big Bang Unico, splashing colors of the rainbow across it.
Described as a summer sky after a storm, the Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow is embodied in a rainbow of brightly coloured gemstones on a backdrop of 18ct pink gold.
In an invisible closed setting, 290 precious and fine gemstones draw a vibrant spectrum around the dial where the House’s iconic movement is revealed.
Commenting on the new release, Ricardo Guadalupe, said: “It requires meticulousness, expertise and dexterity to obtain this harmonious gradation of the gemstones and create a perfect connection between the emotion they arouse and the watchmaking technique.”
“Draughtsmen, gemologists and setters worked together to achieve this setting in which pink gold is present only to gently emphasise the contours. The Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow condenses the purity and precision of these incredible professions.”
The rainbow stretches across the entire 45-mm case while one hundred rubies, pink sapphires, amethysts, blue sapphires, blue topazes, tsavorites, and yellow and orange sapphires line up in a radiant chromatic composition.
112 baguette-cut gemstones edge its bezel in studied hues that echo the subtle shades of the 48 gemstones set on the dial and the indexes.
