Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Gold quick review

May 15, 2023,22:07 PM

Hello Everyone,

I'm excited to share a quick review of my newest addition - the Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Gold. I already own and adore the Ceramic Red Magic version, but the allure of the yellow gold was simply too strong to resist.

Recently, I've been reducing my collection and thought this new version of a favorite watch was the perfect choice. Although it shares the same movement and case style as the ceramic version, this Yellow Gold edition has a completely different look and feel that's really appealing.

Last year, during LVMH Watch Week in January, Hublot went back to using yellow gold, a material from its early days. They introduced four models, and the Spirit of Big Bang was one of them. When I saw it at my local dealer, it instantly caught my eye.

At first, I was considering the Yellow Gold Unico, but my love for the Spirit of Big Bang won out. And now, here it is.

I'd love to hear what you all think about it!

I never understand why the antipathy for Hublot came from. Are it poor guys? Or something else? I dislike socker for instance, not always i dislike socker, but Hublot is cool. I like Usaine Bolt wear his Hublot.

It's because

critics feel that it copied the design language from AP, is too expensive (especially when their movements were off the shelf albeit heavily modified), had some crazy designs and more fashion than haute horologie coupled with no 'history' since they came ...

I have been thinking of adding something more modern and a unico is starting to look more appealing. I've only had the older fusion on my wrist, so need to find one to look at. Thanks for sharing.

thank you 👏I can only recommend the Unico

as a fantastic movement! Very smooth and with the different sizes (42, 44, 45) it can fit well on any wrist. There are so many options. A lot of value and presence on the wrist.

The story is great. By this, i want also to have a Spirit of Big Bang. The weight and feel difference is amazing. I like the blue model, so i look if i can make a deal. Depends if a seller and i agree about the price.

I really like the yellow gold. I had a SoBB Ceramic Blue (limited to 100 pieces), sold it and acquired the Integral Blue Ceramic. As you know, the HUB1280 in-house movement has the smoothest chronograph operation we’ve ever handled

thank you👏 I totally agree that the Unico movement

 By: christianch : May 16th, 2023-16:54
has the smoothest chronograph pushers, better even that the Vacheron. I have a Big Bang Unico and the Magic Red Spirit of Big Bang. I wasn't sure between the YG Unico and YG Spirit of Big Bang but in person it was clear that the SoBB is my favourite desig...

Unico has some spindle gear that may be the reason

Read about in some reviews , sort of a special wheel (daytona uses too?) That makes this feel. I have no technical know how, so could be wrong 🤣
