"Time Only:" For The First Time, Hublot's Big Bang Integral In 40mm The quintessence of Hublot: the watchmaker has succeeded in housing all the power and exclusivity of its Big Bang Integral in an unprecedented diameter of 40mm. A first.

Three pieces, three hands, three materials, but just one diameter: 40mm. This is a first for the Big Bang Integral. Never before has Hublot's iconic design been fitted into such a slim-fitting and sexy outfit.
Thinner than ever, perfectly adjusted in a case of yellow gold, titanium, or "All Black" ceramic, it lends a refined perspective to time. This new collection, simply named "Time Only," refocuses on the essence of watchmaking: hours, minutes, seconds, and the date, without losing any of the power of the watchmaker's codes. The true aesthetic signature of the Big Bang Integral, the integrated bracelet, returns to give the watch its strength.

This iconic three-link bracelet mirrors the sharp edges of the case, echoing the vibrant and powerful architecture of the middle. Each link is individually polished and satin-finished, chamfered, and bevelled, providing either matt or glossy complex, alternating surfaces to reflect every spark of light. The new 40mm case is particularly well suited to this integrated bracelet, which makes each composition more profound and incisive. The new "Time Only" Big Bang Integral is the epitome of Hublot, essential, intimate, and powerful.

"No one was expecting it, so, of course, we did it: a Big Bang Integral that is more compact, vibrant, and powerful than ever; at the same time, as being more refined than any of its other timepieces," said Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO, Hublot. "It has been a true exercise in watch design, retaining our aesthetic and technical grammar, but in a totally new format for us. We pulled off the challenge, by creating a Big Bang Integral, which once again proves its versatility and modernity!"

Simplicity is clearly the guiding principle when it comes to the movement: these three "Time Only" versions have a sapphire crystal on the face and back, where the Big Bang's iconic oscillating weight is housed. Here you will find the perfectly adjusted compact calibre, manufactured by the watchmaker, in its new 40mm space that it fills entirely. Each surface is satin-finished to provide a matt finish on the dial for perfect legibility. The index, hands, and date window of each version are finished in yellow gold, titanium, or All Black ceramic.
