Hublot Big Bang RCNP

        Created by Carlo Crocco and rooted in the 1980’s, Hublot is a young and dynamic luxury watch-making brand, and as some would say a newcomer in the industry. Hublot has its headquarters in Nyon Switzerland and in its short existence the brand experienced a spectacular growth while it preserved a highly personal philosophy of audacious creativity and revolutionary free-thinking. Nevertheless, Hublot will remain forever imbedded in the history of Haute Horology as the first brand which blended the classy elegance of gold with the sporty youthful air of natural rubber, an inconceivable novelty which individualized Hublot and placed it among the most renowned watchmakers of the world.

        Crossing beyond the boundaries of fashion phenomenon, the combination of precious materials and rubber became the brand’s symbolic signature, and the exquisite Hublot ‘Big Bang Real Club Nautico De Palma is an eloquent example of Hublot’s mastery and free-thinking when it comes to innovative design and fresh attractive appearance.

        Being the official timekeeper of many important sailing competitions held in the Mediterranean Sea, Hublot pays a great tribute to its privileged partnership with the Sailing Club, in its Hublot ‘Big Bang Real Club Nautico De Palma’, a beautiful timepiece which bears the official colors of the Real Club Nautico De Palma’ (RCNP).

        This sophisticated wristwatch, designed to mark the prestigious Copa del Rey, makes use of the Hublot emblematic natural rubber-strap which adds a plus of comfort and sportiness in combination with a sober powerful design of the case and dial.

        Drawing its inspiration from the notorious Hublot Fusion concept, the stainless steel case, measuring 44.5 mm in diameter, comprises, in its construction, an opaque ceramic bezel fitted with 6 H-shaped screws made from titanium, characteristic for most of the brand’s models. The watch also features bezel side inserts and lugs manufactured from black composite resin along with the stainless steel crown and push-pieces, equipped with black rubber inserts.

        Emanating power and sober masculinity, the dark carbon dial is fitted with rhodium-plated applied hour markers and additional sporty red accents as the RCNP logo located at 9 o’clock position, which all mingle in a temperate and delightful coherence.

        Animated by the HUB44 Caliber, self-winding movement, which provides 42 hours power reserve, this timepiece ensures hour, minute, second, chronograph, and date-display functions.

        Fitted with rhodium-plated, faceted hour hands, that have received luminescent coating, the very distinctive model features a red-accented chronograph hand individualized by an H counterweight and a trapezoidal date aperture positioned at 4.30. Moreover ensuring respectable 100 meters water-resistance, the timepiece is a very interesting and charismatic creation which comes with a price tag starting with $ 9, 650.00 up to $18,250.00 for the red gold variation.
