“The mechanics of the Big Bang Meca-10 Blue Ceramic are as innovative as the materials comprising them. Developed over a span of two years, its manually-wound skeleton calibre, with a 10-day power reserve, contains 223 parts. A testament to beauty and technical expertise, it has two barrels parallel to the power reserve indicator: a cogwheel system with two rakes sliding along a horizontal axis. Accentuating this mechanical architecture, an opening at 3 o’clock unveils a red dot when the movement is nearing the final days of its power reserve, while a gearwheel at 6 o’clock indicates the exact number of days remaining and the regulating organ, coupled with the small second regulator, appears at 7 o’clock.”
It must be upsetting to the people at Hublot that most people will not read their press release for this watch. The few people who will look at this watch will probably not notice the watch is meant to be a mechanical sculpture that can also tell time. Hublot is celebrating industrial design with shapes and elements not normally found in a traditional watch movement. The designer of the watch said he wanted to please people who looked at the watch movement.
This watch is made for an experienced watch collector who can really appreciate the movement and intricate details of the watch. But it also perfect for people who like their watch to have a masculine and modern design. However, the person who will most enjoy this watch is one with $22,000 in their bank account, as this watch does not come cheap.
