Stainless steel is a material that has long been used throughout Hublot’s prestigious watch manufacture. The metal is durable, long lasting, hard wearing and incredibly easy to work with. It therefore comes as no surprise that many timepieces within the luxury wristwatch industry use stainless steel for their watch cases. Others may be partly crafted from stainless steel, with 18ct rose gold or PVD finished bezels to complete their look. At Hublot, skilled technicians. artisans and craftsmen dedicate large amounts of time towards evolving their materials, but that does not go to say that the company doesn’t like to keep things traditional and simple with their use of stainless steel throughout their many collections. As an official stockist of steel Hublot watches here at Berry’s, we like to think that our collection demonstrates Hublot’s innovative use of the material. It is the bold surfaces and the sharply chiselled facets that culminate such an iconic status on the wrists of Hublot lovers. Whether you are looking at designs from the Hublot Big Bang collection or the Classic Fusion line, you will note that it is the bezels that are more often than not, crafted from an alternative material to their stainless steel case. Take for example, the Hublot Big Bang Steel Ceramic 44mm watch. A broad satin finished and stainless steel case boasts a vertical satin finished black ceramic bezel to its surface. The two layers are secured together with 6 H-shaped titanium screws which again, differ from the traditional steel case. The hands on the black carbon fibre dial are satin finished and rhodium coated, demonstrating a mix of materials which combine effortlessly into one design.
The Hublot Big Bang One Click Steel Diamonds watch is an opulent timepiece made from robustly engineered materials. The polished and satin finished stainless steel case provides all the protection needed by the in-house manufactured Hublot HUB1710 movement to keep accurate time. 42 individual hand-picked diamonds have been chosen to illuminate the bezel in all the glistening shades of the spectrum. Perfect for ladies who like to add sparkle to their everyday wardrobe, or for a gentleman looking to add something extra special to a dinner jacket in the evening – the creation can be enjoyed by both male and female lovers of the Hublot Big Bang watch. The sparkle of each diamond marries beautifully with the lustrous silvery shades of the stainless steel case, creating a classic yet sleek finish to the watch.
The Hublot Big Bang Aero Bang Steel watch is a 44mm model, designed from stainless steel and a matte black skeletonized dial. Along with the trio of chronograph dials placed at 3. 6 and 9 o’clock, the design gets even more technical-looking with a background that acts as a window through to the heart of the watch. Through a sapphire crystal dial, some of Hublot’s 257-part in-house developed movement can be seen behind luminous coated, satin finished rhodium-coated appliques and hands. This steel Hublot watch makes for a nice alternative to the simple three-handed design or the classic chronograph watch.
