The Hublot Big Bang is definitely the watch that brought the traditional Swiss brand back to life. About 2 years ago, nobody heard or was interested in the brand, suddenly the Big Bang surfaced and was the new hit. Just in time, when the Audemars Piquet Offshore series was loosing popularity, simply because it was too much out there, Hublot jumped in and took that place with the Big Bang.
After the very popular Luna Rossa limited edition version of the watch, they now present the Ayrton Senna edition. The Hublot Big Bang Aryton Senna All Black Rattrapante sports the Ayrton Senna Institute, a non-profit institute founded by Viviane Senna, the sister of the deceased Brazilian racing driver, the Ayrton Senna. The watch is a Chronograph Split-Second with Power Reserve indicator in black with Ayrton Senna’s signature in red and the Brazilian flag in green and yellow on the Split-Second hand which can be used to record an intermediate time by means of the two chronograph seconds hands.
An incredible watch. In case you are interested, you better have good connections to your watch dealer, because these will be hard to find! Oh, and they go for 25’000 USD!
