Hublot’s powerful designs aren’t exactly known for their flexibility, but I believe many people will be surprised by how much their sense of style is capable of. The Spirit of Big Bang is more than just a catchy name for Hublot’s tonneau-shaped case design; it’s a living example of how the industrial spirit and heritage of the original Big Bang can be transformed into any form.
It’s a promise of challenging any standard, redefining the definition of luxury, and breaking through technological barriers along the way. Hublot utilised the Spirit of Big Bang to create the new Yellow Magic as well as two diamond-studded tiny pieces.

Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Magic
When someone thinks of an extravagant luxury watch, images of outrageous gold cases swimming in diamonds all over the dial come to mind. But turning up the splendour doesn’t necessarily have to be so extravagant. The Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Magic is certainly loud, but its brilliant yellow ceramic case seems more like a punch of personality than a symptom of aposematism.
It’s an ode to Hublot’s technological understanding of ceramic as a material, because most colours, especially bright ones, are quite difficult to make. The method requires a proper balance of pigments and sintering, which includes heating the ceramic to just below its melting point. If not done correctly, it will result in a blotchy or unstable product.
Spirit of Big Bang Diamonds
The Spirit of Big Bang also achieves sophistication and elegance, with two 32-mm variants demonstrating how elegant the tonneau shape can be despite its sporting twists. The black dial variant with a stainless steel case is quite flexible, while the King Gold and white dial reference is a little more opulent.
Inside the case, there’s a HUB1120 self-winding movement that has 40 hours of power reserve.
