Big BAAAAAANG!

Jul 02, 2022,12:53 PM
 

After 14 years of collecting mechanical watches, I did the same on the same day as Thomas (MTR) and bought my very first HUBLOT watch for me!

Please see it yourself:



BAAAAAANGGGGG!

The summer is here and lasts forever!!!



It looks like a spider on the wrist, the titanium case is very light, the watch is easy to wear, the blue colour is like the endless sky on the horizont!



The rubber strap is very comfortable and its colour is in a perfect harmony with the colour of the dial and bezel.



Her Majesty, the Queen ( King ) of every Hublots, the BIG BANG UNICO in her full beauty:



It has a strong apperance not only on the wrist but also in the wild nature:



Like a big, strong Anaconda:



But, of course, she is born to wear:



The bezel is made of ceramic, of course:



Love the colours of the watch, the blue and the silvery white themes:



The movement is also BLUE:



Only one question left:

Why took it so long to get my first Hublot into my collection?

Well, I really don’t know. I must admit that I am a great fan of Jean-Claude Biver, he is a genius, if I look what he achieved from Blancpain to Zenith, both in horological and commercial aspects.

Maybe Hublot went before his own age, in the middle of the 2000’s it wasn’t so acceptabe to use various materials ( ceramic, kevlar, carbon ) and the colours of the rainbow or the monochrome themes. Now almost every manufacturer do this, even some classical manufacturers like Rolex, AP, Jaeger etc.

And that is Hublot’s merit, don’t forget about it! Hublot was the first manufacturer which combined a gold case with a rubber strap, which tried unknown pathes to find her own horological way.

The missing of the real manufactural movement blocked me also for a while to buy my first Hublot.

Now I find the brand not too loud anymore, because she arrived home just now, in the 21th century, found her own way on the horological horizont: a new star is born.

When I first noticed this Blue Wonder at my AD I was immediately lost.
It is the very first Hublot, which I find perfect in every single details therefore I didn’t hesitate too much and took it home!

Since then she left only few times my wrist and I am enjoying the summer with her in a perfect harmony!

In this sense I wish you all a very nice weekend and an endless summer!

Truly yours,

Adam

I’m with you on Biver, that’s one guy who could sell me a watch and sell me on a watch. As I commented on Thomas’ posts, I’ve been Hublot curious the last few years too, and specifically the Unico. We will see where that goes, although I feel the time and... 

Dear Jay,

understood your concerns. I think nowadays it is true for almost every brand: you can’t wear safely your watches in public, especially the bling-bling watches. And Hublot is not a shy person. But now it is a common phenomenon, unfortunately. I am also not...

Took me a while too. Now I can’t take it off Perfect 42mm for me. ...  

Very nice,

Michael. The same model was also on my wrist but I found it too blue and a bit little on my arm…

👌👌I understand. Enjoy yours , a beautiful watch for sure. I want a white ceramic one, but I know my wife will confiscate it. Lol .

Congratulations ! …

the watch is very light and very comfortable to wear, thanks to its titanium case and the rubber strap.

Many thanks,

dear Blansky!

Again a nice Hublot

No secret is i like Hublot. While i do not collect chronographs, Hublot could change my mind. I do not understand the negative behavior the brands gets from some watch channels.

Thank you so much,

dear Weems! I think the collectors combines the brand with the fresh “Insta-Stars” and other “celebrities”, who are wearing Hublot frequently, but I don’t care: the watch is great in every aspects.

Thank you,

Nacelle! Well, nobody stated that before, but you must be right!

Many thanks!

Well, I liked the design from the beginning but I must find the perfect colour combination!

Christian! Well, if an AP owner says that than it must be true..

Hohohohoooo!!! 😃

What is happening here, please?!? Will this be a new trend? I find it very exciting that we both detected Hublot at the same time (you mentioned in my thread a few days before that we bought our Hublots on the same day). You had the association “a man and... 

Dear Thomas,

 
 By: Speedie74 aka Mr. Torquise : July 3rd, 2022-12:21
many thanks for your honest congratulation! Well, indeed, we bought the watch on the same day in a slightly different way. I saw mine around 2 weeks before I bought and picked it up, but I couldn’t let it from my head in these 2 weeks. It was a love at fi... 

Hey Thomas, regarding your seconds hand and minutes hands,

 
 By: Chronometer (aka yacomino) : July 3rd, 2022-14:49
Your comment reminded me that my PAM 422 has the second hand decoupled with the minutes hand and there for time. I actually got a letter from Panerai to that effect after a rate adjustment service. The watch runs to the second almost within 3 sec per day,... 

Very interesting information!

 
 By: MTR : July 3rd, 2022-22:06
Thanks a lot for that. As I said, I'll keep an eye on the watch for a while. I already had watches that went too fast for the first few days and then slowed down. I will report. ☺️

Thanks Thomas! I will be most interested to read your thoughts on this! Cheers!

I still think you got the best looking hublot out there! 🔥🔥🔥

You are too kind! 🙏🙏🙏

Thank you so much. ☺️

Congrats!

Is yours 42 or 44mm? I have my eye on the 42mm model: What is your wrist size? I currently have a Big Bang Integral Ceramic Blue 42mm. It fits and looks great on my 6.5” wrist. The Unico has slightly thicker case size and slightly larger lug-to-lug width... 

Dear Walds,

 
 By: Speedie74 aka Mr. Torquise : July 3rd, 2022-15:42
I have a stronger wrist, around 7.5”-7.8”, therefore my choice was obvious for the 44mm model! I have tried also the 42mm Integral model, but it was really “little” on my wrist comparing with this 44mm model. Yes, indeed, it is a very, very comfortable wa... 

Adam, thank you for the feedback.

 
 By: walds11 : July 3rd, 2022-16:54
Even the Unico 44mm looks quite large on your 7.5-7.8” wrist! It must be the closeup shots playing tricks on my eyes. Enjoy this wonderful timepiece. I hope to add the same one in 42mm soon.

Walds,

 
 By: Speedie74 aka Mr. Torquise : July 3rd, 2022-16:59
good Luck with the purchase! It seems maybe too large because the strap was too loose, at least one hole bigger as my size, but I love to wear my watches on that windy way!
