Hublot Big Bang Gold Ceramic Review

Hublot is a Swiss watchmaking luxury brand that has been creating some of the most exceptional designs and precision luxury timepieces for decades. This Big Bang Gold Ceramic Men’s watch design is inspired by a Hublot classic. The idea of merging Gold and rubber first began in 1980 when Carlo Crocco made a Hublot that featured a design with a Gold case and a natural rubber strap. This was the first time that Gold, a precious, royal metal, was paired with a versatile rubber strap on a luxury wrist watch. This has now become a pairing that symbolizes the Hublot brand.

This Big Bang Gold Ceramic Men’s Automatic timepiece is an exciting, exceptional, and definition of precision timekeeping. This is no fashion watch from the likes of Daniel Wellington, Michael Kors or Guess watches, but truly a piece of design and engineering excellence!

Specs/Size/Design

This Swiss-made, important Hublot is the picture of modern fashion and luxury. The Swiss-made HUB44 Automatic movement is made with the precision and materials one would expect in a fine luxury timepiece.

The incredible 44mm 18kt Rose Gold and Ceramic case is fit for a king and offers a unique statement piece for any sophisticated man. The bezel is made of dark black ceramic, secured with shining silver screws that highlight the look. The 44mm case itself is made from solid 18kt Gold featuring a satin finish.

The dial is a beautiful, weave-textured black carbon fibre covered with scratch resistant Sapphire Crystal. With a matching black, silicone strap with PVD steel and gold deployant buckle, this Hublot is perfect for the man who feels more suited towards a sports timepiece that is multifunctional and perfect for casual and dress occasions.

Power Source

Hublot only uses the best power sources in their luxury timepieces. This Hublot Big Band Gold Ceramic Men’s timepiece uses a perfectly-tuned Swiss-made Automatic movement. This movement has a power reserve of up to 42 hours; which means the timepiece will continue to keep time with the reserve power for up to 42 hours after not being worn.

The Good

The construction of this Hublot is outstanding, featuring the best Swiss-made Automatic movement, 18kt Rose Gold casing, and a beautiful black carbon fibre fixed bezel. The black silicone rubber strap is perfect for men who need a more versatile timepiece that can withstand their lifestyle. This is a definite plus.

The black dial has a weave-pattern that gives this 44mm dial face some dimension and character. The Gold dial hands and 18kt Rose Gold case give a fantastic contrast to the black dial and the black carbon fibre bezel. The functions are simple: Chronograph, hours and minutes, small second timekeeping, and the date are included. Another extra is the great power reserve. This Hublot has a power reserve of up to 42 hours.

In effect, the design and exceptional functionality give this timepiece a one-of-a-kind look and feeling when you put it on your wrist.

The Bad

There is a surprising lack of negative aspects and issues to this Hublot. For a luxury timepiece, you do not expect to encounter any issues, but with this model, the functionality, the size, and the design are all perfectly balanced.

Highlights

The highlights of this timepiece are the outstanding design. First, the minimalist porthole-shaped 18kt Rose Gold watch case is a fantastic look. The distinctive black rubber strap symbolizes Hublot timepieces and their versatility. The porthole-shaped case combines polished and brushed 18kt Rose Gold with the black dial and black carbon fibre bezel.

The three main dial hands are made of the same Gold, as are the hour markers, all of which are filled in with white. Even the three sub dials’ hands are made of Gold. The water resistance is exactly as it should be on a timepiece of this calibre. This watch’s porthole face is not just for show; this watch has rated water resistance up to 100 meters (330 feet)/ 10 ATM.

In addition to the hour and minute hands, the seconds hand easily keeps time of the seconds via the beautiful gold second markers around the rim of the dial face. The black dial face has a weave-pattern that gives this timepiece dimension, and perfectly complements the 18kt Gold case and black fibre bezel.

Functionality

The functionality of the Hublot Big Bang is absolutely perfect. With no weak spots or functionality issues, this timepiece is nearly beyond reproach. Featuring water resistance to keep this luxury watch safe, water is not something to be afraid of.

The HUB44 Swiss-made Automatic movement is precise and reliable, and even has a 42-hour power reserve. The three main dial hands are made of the same Gold that complements the 18kt Rose Gold casing, and are filled with white. Featuring a seconds hand that keeps time using the seconds-markers around the dial rim, the design is completely functional and not just for looks.

In addition, there are three sub dials at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions, each with a single Gold hand filled in with white.

Overall Impression

This Hublot timepiece has absolutely nailed every aspect of design, functionality, quality, and even price. A watch of this quality and design would be expected to fetch another ten thousand dollars that what you can purchase it for. This is excellent for those who want to jump on this deal.

Overall, this Hublot is highly recommended and is worth the money in the long run. With a perfect Swiss-made HUB44 Automatic movement; exceptional case, dial, and bezel design; and high-quality construction materials, the Hublot Big Bang Gold Ceramic Men’s Automatic can be considered one of the flagship timepieces for this Swiss luxury brand.
