Hublot has always been a fearless and pioneering brand, and this is no less true in 2020. The Brand's creation of a gold watch on a rubber strap in 1980 broke with conventional codes and laid the foundations for its own vision of Haute Horlogerie. To mark its anniversary, it has revisited its 1980 Classic Original, an iconic example of its disruptive approach. Straddling past and future, horological tradition and technical innovation, this 2020 edition is available in a mechanical version.
An icon that works a variety of materials, finishes and modern and classic technologies into three collectors' models to celebrate Hublot's 40th anniversary.

The Big Bang Sang Bleu II seems complex and elusive, yet its geometry is strikingly balanced and, for its creator Maxime Plescia-Büchi, it evokes a simplicity.
