Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Power Reserve 5-Days Indicator Mechanical Watch

Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Power Reserve 5-Days Indicator Mechanical Watch

More horology, more expertise, more innovation, more fusion: Hublot rises to the challenge and presents the first tourbillon in the new-generation Big Bang line, featuring a skeleton movement-a feast for the eyes-and the added practicality of a power-reserve indicator on the dial side. Designed, developed and produced entirely by Hublot, this mechanical calibre further confirms the brand as one of the very few watchmakers with the capacity to develop and produce its own movements. Remodelled with new bridge and mainplate architecture, this traditional tourbillon is joined by an additional complication, namely a power-reserve indicator. This watch is an exercise in style and a demonstration of Hublot's fusion of tradition and modernity, striking the perfect balance between the classicism of the skeleton tourbillon and the dynamic design of the new Big Bang case.
