Hublot Big Bang Unico Bi-Retrograde Chronograph Replica Watch is why the two permanently rotating hands for the time are arranged in a counter at 6 o’clock. The beautifully finished Unico automatic calibre with a power reserve of 72 hours is of course fully visible via the display case back that happens to be decorated with the FIFA World Cup trophy logo. This way, they continue to display the passing hours and minutes while the seconds are shown by a small sector-shaped counter with a three spoke hand positioned at 9 o’clock which rotates permanently and allows the wearer to see at a glance that the movement is working correctly.
There are two pushers on either side of the crown for Start, Stop and Reset; the pusher at 2 o’clock which is green, is also used to show the period of time selected from the following 4 options: 1st half, half time, 2nd half and end of match, all indicated by a window in the center at 12 o’clock. The screw-down crown with over molded rubber is decorated on the end with the famous “H” from the Hublot screw. The design of the piece features a ‘Big Bang Unico’ case with a powerful 45.5 mm diameter for a stylish look. The Hublot Big Bang Unico Replica Watch bezel is secured by the famous 6 H-shaped screws, designed in relief to allow alternating polished and matte finishes.
How does it work in this particular case? When the chronograph is started, the chrono’s seconds hand and minute hand move from left to right in a circular arc of 45 minutes —one half of a soccer match—, with an area for 15 minutes —added complementary time— to measure up to 60 minutes. It is the first time Hublot has unveiled a watch with a bi-retrograde display —the hands return to their starting points at lightning speed.
Another challenge to be met by those designing the movement was energy. This rather unusual display design demands additional effort, as the rapid movements of the hands require more energy from the movement.
The dial Hublot Big Bang Replica Watch bears the national colors of Brazil —yellow and green— where the FIFA 2014 World Cup will be hosted from June 12th thru July 13th. Although its official name is the Hublot ‘Big Bang Official Watch of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brasil’, it has already earned the nickname of “Soccer Bang”. This new fascinating watch is available in 18K King Gold with carbon fiber bezel limited to 100 pieces or in black ceramic with carbon fiber bezel limited to 200 pieces.
The sharp angles Hublot Replica Watch and intelligent sandwich system have been retained in the case design, but the strap attachment in particular has been optimized: it features the now famous “One click” system which allows the wearer to switch between a wide choice of straps – each watch is supplied with a structured and ribbed natural rubber strap which perfectly matches the end pieces of the middle case.
