The Hublot Big Bang Integral collection was first released in 2020 to a good reception from collectors, and received good medial coverage.

Read here our comprehensive hands-on review of the Big Bang Integral.

It was the first Big Bang’s release in 2005, that an integrated bracelet was added to the iconic Hublot collection. Hublot had chosen to launch with their in-house chronograph movement – the Unico HUB1280.

And in a move to extend the Big Bang Integral collection, Hublot’s new release is a lineup of 3 watches, all with 3 hands, and in 3 different materials – from an entry level model in titanium, a limited edition model in black ceramic, and an yellow gold version for some bling. The new watch is now a very wearable and sensible 40mm case diameter.

The same design language and and open dial architecture is used. The case and bracelet also adopts the same design as the Unico Integrals. This is a good thing, as the fit, finish of the case and bracelet is excellent. As we noted in the review of the launch models, the Big Bang Unico is also well placed in terms of pricing, and the new Time Only models are not exceptions. For a fully integrated, in-house produced watch with 3 hands, the pricing is competitive when compared to the likes of the Chopard Alpine Eagle and the Czapek Antarctique. But lower than the asking prices for Vacheron Constantin Overseas Self Winding, Piaget Polo S, Moser Streamliner, Audemars Piguet Royal Oak.

As usual, we have requested for a hands-on session with the novelties when it arrives in Singapore, and will revert with high resolution photographs and our in-depth review when we have done so.

Thinner than ever, perfectly adjusted in a case of yellow gold, titanium or ‘All Black’ ceramic, it lends a refined perspective to time. This new collection, simply named ‘Time Only’, refocuses on the essence of watchmaking: hours, minutes, seconds and the date, without losing any of the power of the watchmaker’s codes. The true aesthetic signature of the Big Bang Integral, the integrated bracelet, returns to give the watch its strength.

This iconic three-link bracelet mirrors the sharp edges of the case, echoing the vibrant and powerful architecture of the middle. Each link is individually polished and satin-finished, chamfered and bevelled, providing either matt or glossy complex, alternating surfaces to reflect every spark of light. The new 40 mm case is particularly well suited to this integrated bracelet which makes each composition more profound and incisive. The new ‘Time Only’ Big Bang Integral is the epitome of Hublot, essential, intimate and powerful.

Simplicity is clearly the guiding principle when it comes to the movement: these three ‘Time Only’ versions have a sapphire crystal on the face and back, where the Big Bang’s iconic oscillating weight is housed. Here you will find the perfectly adjusted compact calibre, manufactured by the watchmaker, in its new 40mm space which it fills entirely. Each surface is satin-finished to provide a matt finish on the dial for perfect legibility. The index, hands and date window of each version are finished in yellow gold, titanium or All Black ceramic.

The ‘Time Only’ Big Bang Integral in titanium and yellow gold join the collection. The ‘All Black’ version, like all the
All Blacks crafted by the watchmaker, is limited to 250 pieces.
