【Watch】The new watch of Hublot is
“Adult Blue Camo” with strength and freshness
In the clock scene, colorful watches are trending. Great power brands in the luxury price range are developing innovative new products with a focus on the use of color across the board. Literally “varied” situations. Among them, the hot stock is blue, and it has a light and refreshing tone that is different from the stable route navy etc. The model announced by Hublot, the Big Bang Unico Sky Blue Camo, is just one such model. However, not only that, but the dial and strap are designed with a blue camo. It is a timepiece that is not only refreshing but also has the toughness of an adult.
A Japan limited edition model that joins Hublot’s flagship Big Bang Unico features a blue case and bezel reminiscent of a pleasantly clear blue eye. The blue camo also has a camouflage pattern strap based on blue, and the movement shade peeks out from the skeletonized dial is similar. The exciting color scheme is the result of technical skills.
The case and bezel of the Big Bang Unico Sky Blue Camo are made of ceramic. Ceramic is not only lightweight, strong, scratch and abrasion resistant, but also has a unique luxurious texture. However, it is difficult to control processing and coloring, and there are not many brands that can handle this material freely. Hublot is a pioneer and authority on ceramic watches, patented in 2018 for the world’s first brightly colored ceramic. The striking sky blue case and bezel are polished and satin-finished, giving the livery an exquisite sense of dynamism. “Sky Blue” generally has a strong casual image, but with outstanding technology, it has been sublimated into a higher grade and dignified elegance.
Not limited to the Big Bang, Hublot is a brand that is often talked about for its boldness in design and unexpectedness. However, the cornerstone is the advanced mechanism. The symbol of this is the automatic movement “Unico” (Cal.HUB1280). In 2010, Hublot unveiled its first In-house developed and manufactured Unico (Cal. HUB1242). After that, the new Cal.HUB1280 announced in 2018 has a thickness of 1.3 mm slimmer despite the fact that the number of parts has increased compared to the Cal.HUB1242. Like the monumental masterpiece Cal.HUB1242, it is equipped with a flyback chronograph mechanism that smoothly measures continuous elapsed time, and has a continuous operating time of about 72 hours, making it extremely practical.
In addition, this caliber actually has an extraordinary attention to appearance. The Unico has the main parts of the chronograph, such as the column wheel and clutch, concentrated on the dial side, and when the chronograph is activated, the movement of the mechanism can be seen clearly from the dial on the skeleton. Even the dynamic mechanism is designed as a part of the design, and while being enlivened by the unique coloring, the real pleasure of a mechanical watch is the eye (and heart!). It’s fun.
The camouflage pattern of the strap uses vulcanization technology, which the company patented in 2019 for the first time in the watch industry, and is a fine combination of individually cut patterns. The ceramic case and bezel perfectly balance the color scheme as well as the quality of the texture.

The camouflage motif is a familiar and classic in both the watch and fashion scenes, but this model broke that line lightly and appeared in a dashing manner. Since the birth of the first model in 2005, the Big Bang has attracted attention as a revolutionary child of luxury watches, and is loved by the world-class artists and athletes of the era, and is also called the “watch of the successful”. The concept is “The Art of Fusion”.
This fall, with a special blue that is different from others, why not travel freely in a new area of life?
