Produced in limited series of just 100 pieces, the new Hublot watch comes packaged in a 44.5 mm round-shaped case. It is rendered in micro-blasted black ceramic. The same material is employed in the manufacturing of the bezel. Featured at 3 o’clock, the massive winding crown is made of steel with a blue rubber insert. So are the chronograph push-pieces, located at 2 and 4 o’clock.
The front side of the case is protected by a double-sided glare-proofed sapphire crystal. The sapphire glass is also used for the case-back. The water-resistance of the model is assured down to 100 meters.
Atop the new Hublot Big Bang Black Magic amfAR Bang automatic chronograph watch sits a black dial, reflecting the amfAR’s color scheme. It comprises a blue Superluminova and orange-colored minute track. The dial offers central hours and minutes, indicated by satin-finished rhodium-plated hands, inlaid with blue Superluminova. The small seconds are shown in a counter at 9 o’clock.
The display also provides chronograph functions, ensured by a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock and a yellow-colored central seconds hand. The latter is counterweighted by the brand’s signature “H”. The date indication appears in the aperture between 4 and 5 o’clock.
All the functions are brought to life by a Swiss made self-winding HUB 4100 movement. It is composed of 252 individual parts. The caliber incorporates a sand-blasted and rhodium-plated main-plate as well as tungsten oscillating weight with a black PVD-treated dimpled surface. The bridges are satin-finished, bevelled and polished. The mechanism runs at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a 42-hour power reserve.
The new Hublot watch is accompanied by an adjustable alligator gummy and black rubber strap, with blue and yellow stitching. It is finalized by a Big Bang deployant buckle in black PVD steel.
