At this year's Watches & Wonders show in Geneva, Hublot unveiled its own interpretation of the square watch, a totally new geometry for the watchmaker. This collection, 'The Shaped Collection,' was inspired by Maison's iconic Big Bang and will sit alongside the Spirit of Big Bang.
"The square watch is a very specific object that most watchmakers dare not tackle. This is a divisive, disruptive, and unconventional shape that no one has known how to rework for decades: it was just waiting for us! Hublot decided to get to grips with the shape in order to explore its power and create a totally unique timepiece. Like any Hublot, the Square Bang Unico has no equivalent!" said Hublot's CEO, Ricardo Guadalupe.
There are five 42mm models already available. The first three are in solid titanium, black ceramic or King Gold while the last two blend titanium or King Gold with a black ceramic bezel. All of the models come with a black rubber strap and a folding clasp in the same material as the case.
All black: the collector edition limited to 250 pieces. It is the only limited edition of the Square Bang Unico collection.
