Back into the Hublot HUB6311 motion, it’s performed in Ruthenium-coated Anthracite, also Hublot also boasts of a “invisible” crystal over the cage that holds the top area of the tourbillon utilizing a bridge. I’ll need to wait to see this in action closely, but Hublot says that the result is that the aesthetics of a flying tourbillon when providing the equilibrium of a tourbillon using 2 pivot points.The watch is 45mm wide but 14.8mm thick, that is pretty sparse, thanks partly to the manual-winding movement. The crown is at 4 o’clock with the chronograph pusher above it that Hublot asserts is an ergonomic choice – although I can envision an errant digit or thumb hitting on the pusher accidentally when adjusting the crown. That would be slightly annoying, even if the motion weren’t enough to start the chronograph. But I am just speculating and nitpicking here.The Hublot Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph is a stunning but not gaudy tribute to Ferrari’s 70th anniversary, and though we don’t have pictures of the gold model yet, the ceramic and PEEK Carbon (that’s carbon made with specially long fibers for durability) look absolutely incredible to me. I am a pretty major fan of Hublot, however I believe even people who say a few of their offerings are “too much” will be able to enjoy the layout here. Of course, that admiration is going to be done similarly to many admiration of Ferrari’s cars: by a distance. Coming in 70 pieces of each model, the titanium version will be priced at $127,000, the carbon model at $137,000, and the King Gold version will cost $158,000. In Baselworld 2017, Hublot declared the Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis, the most recent chapter in their collection of Manufacture Piece (MP) watches. Hublot designed a compelling 3-sided sapphire crystal instance that tapers at 6 o’clock specifically to display the dual turning of this bi-axial tourbillon. Not just the case was created to set the bi-axial tourbillon front and center, the new movement was created with maximum visibility of the mechanism in your mind. So, yeah this Hublot is all about being seen and the outcome is a wristwatch that’s really unlike any other.
The Hublot Watches Automatic Replica Big Bang finally has an in-house Unico movement. Available in four variations, which are the first of a new line.

The new Hublot Big Bang Unico watches are the first Big Bang chronographs equipped with the in-house Unico movement. Though the Big Bang Unico looks similar to the original Big Bang (and every other Hublot), there are noticeable changes compared to the original Big Bang. For one the case is now larger, at 45.5 mm wide. And the chronograph pushers are round, which is unusual for a Hublot. Also, the case has the push-button mechanism to enable easy swapping of straps, which was first used in the Big Bang King Power. The Unico movement is made by Hublot, and it is a flyback chronograph with column wheel, as well as silicon escape wheel and pallet fork. It’s about time the Big Bang was upgraded, since the original Big Bang – which made its debut in 2005 – is beginning to look dated given with the multitude of imitators. More importantly the Valjoux 7750 movement is now difficult to accept for a watch of this price range. That being said, this does not replace the Big Bang for now, instead it is an additional line.
