In 2010, Hublot Ferrari Watch Yellow Replica launched its new manufacture movement, the Unico chronograph, which was fitted in its iconic Big Bang model in 2013. Fully designed, developed, machined and assembled by Hublot’s own engineers, micro-mechanics, and watchmakers, this chronograph movement is called calibre Unico HUB 1242. This flyback chronograph, which can be reset at any time, is one of a kind in the industry. It stands out because of its double clutch mechanism and column wheel which can be seen from the dial side also having a removable platform escapement.
The dial is matte black with black employed markers and black luminescent paint, which will be known for using a somewhat faint glow. The 7:00 marker is the only one that’s Arabic and once more, set with black diamonds. The watch graphics however, make the palms seem to be brushed alloy with no plating, which should improve legibility in some light conditions.The case of the Hublot Big Bang Las Vegas Special Edition watches are finished by stainless steel pushers and crown (black PVD of course) along with a black (surprise) composite resin for the lugs. The situation checks in at 44mm broad by 14.6mm thick — nicely sized for people to observe the bling. Additionally, it is rated to 100m water resistance so that you can keep it on while you take a dip at the resort pool.The Hublot Big Bang Las Vegas Special Edition watches are restricted runs — 21 pieces for the all-ceramic case (Ref. 301. CI.1110. HR.LVB17), 1 piece just for the case with baguette cut diamonds (Ref. 301. CI.1110. HR.0900. LVB17), and 7 bits every day for the remaining two (Ref. 301. CI.1110. HR.1100. 301. CI.1110. HR.1700. LVB17).

Five years later, the watchmakers from the Nyon manufacture have reworked the structure to offer the calibre HUB1280. This all new Unico movement is slimmer, giving it perfect dimensions for the 42-mm case of the new Big Bang. Just like its big brother, it keeps its double clutch mechanism and its column wheel can still be seen from the dial side. But, thanks to the removal of the platform escapement and the introduction of a new, flatter, self-winding system, it is 1.3 mm thinner (for the same 30-mm diameter).

Building on the styling, reliability and robustness that made the HUB 1242 such a success, the architecture of the new HUB1280 has been entirely redesigned to facilitate its assembly and improve the wearer’s view of its operation through its dial and its windowed back cover. Technical innovations for which four different patents have been filed, including an oscillating seconds clutch and an adjustable ball-bearing chronograph friction system. The total number of components has increased from 330 to 354 parts; the new calibre having 43 rubies compared with 38 in the previous model. The Pellaton self-winding system has been replaced by a double reversing switch with ball-bearings. The power reserve remains the same at 72 hours.
