LVMH Watch Week is an opportunity to launch a series of novelties showcasing Hublot’s philosophy of always being “First, Unique, and Different,” as well as its DNA, the Art of Fusion in watchmaking.

With the new Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Orange Sapphire, the brand once again achieves a world-first by adding a completely new shade to its palette of tinted sapphires, combined with an entirely new, redesigned self-winding tourbillon.
“The LVMH Watch Week Dubai in January 2020 was a success for Hublot, especially with the positive response from press and clients on the Big Bang Integral. This year, we are presenting this piece in three new colours of ceramic.
We are proud to partner with the other Maisons of the LVMH Watch Division in order to unveil our first novelties of the year.
Today, more than ever, we must adapt how we connect with each other, in new and different ways, in particular, digitally. Innovation is key and the release of our Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Orange Sapphire is the perfect example: new material, new caliber, the perfect expression of Hublot’s Art of Fusion.” Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO.
