Hublot unveils the highly complicated Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Cathedral Minute Repeater - made in lightweight yet sturdy high-tech ceramic. It is the first tourbillon/ minute repeater to be entirely housed in ceramic, with a ceramic bezel and an integrated ceramic bracelet. The 319-piece manually wound movement chimes the time using cathedral gongs in an ultra-clear and highly projected sound. Just 36 pieces will be made in total, 18 each in black ceramic and white.

Fusing the past and present, craftsmanship with innovation and art with timekeeping, Hublot creates futuristic timepieces that despite their convention to watchmaking tradition, are truly unconventional. The first brand to dare combine gold with rubber in the same watch and to create an entirely ceramic-encased tourbillon, Hublot does not follow the pack. From its unique Unico automatic chronographs, revolutionary motor functions and unparalleled power reserve found in the Meca-10 tourbillon and MP-11 calibers, Hubolt pays homage to all scopes of human capability.Having partnered with sportsmen, artists, musicians and chefs, the brand's creative potential is also constantly challenged and refined in having to accommodate all wrists. Working also with Kevin Pietersean and his platform Save Our Rhino, and with the Polar Pod - a zero-emission, ecological explorer vessel - Hublot's dedication to being futuristic not only lies in its design, but in its values that seek to preserve our planet.
