http://www.crmjewelers.com – Hublot Big Bang Unico Watch Review
I have reviewed the Hublot Big Bang Evolution before and also compared it to an AP Royal Oak, but on this review, I want to focus on a specific Big Bang…
The Big Bang Unico is a 45mm sporty watch from the Hublot. It is 1mm larger than the traditional 44mm Big Bang and features the new in-house Unico movement.
When Hublot released the Unico in 2013, they didn’t do so to replace the original Big Bang model, but instead to release a new watch with a new movement (instead of the modified ETA 7750 Movement).
To me, the Unico reminds me of a smaller version of a King Power, which is a 48mm watch. I like to call it the “Baby King Power.” For those that like the look of the King Power, but don’t necessarily like how a 48mm watch looks on their wrist, the Hublot Unico might be a good-looking fit.
Another difference between the Hublot Big Bang and Unico versions is that the Big Bang Unico comes with round pushers, whereas the traditional model comes with square pushers.
The overall layouts of the Unico and regular Big Bang timepieces are very similar. Both bracelets look as if they go all the way through the watch and both watches come with a combination [or fusion] of materials, like ceramic, rose gold, rubber, and titanium, etc.
The Big Bang Unico is very similar to Hublot Ferrari models when it comes to the quick release mechanism on the bracelet. This quick release functionality on the strap is actually pretty cool and helpful, since watch fans that like to change their straps often now don’t need a screwdriver or other tools to do so.
The Hublot Unico is a sporty watch that pulls a lot of rank when it comes to the Watch Game, especially since it’s slightly larger than the regular Big Bang. It is also a watch that you don’t see out on the street too often, so if you want something sporty that looks great, it might definitely be a good option for you.
The retail price of the watch is around $40,000, but a good pre-owned price is somewhere between $25,000 and $27,000.
