    The present lot offers the winner more than just a timepiece.
    It also provides its owner with the opportunity to lend a helping hand to provide hope and relief to cancer patients, as the proceeds will be donated to Fond’Action.

    For this auction, Hublot has specially crafted a unique “Big Bang UNICO ‘START-STOP-RESET’”. The present example’s overtly powerful stainless steel column wheel chronograph houses an in-house fly-back UNICO caliber. Thanks to it’s sapphire dial the movement can be admired via an unobstructed view.

    With an interesting nod to the title of this thematic sale, the pusher at two o’clock is engraved with the words “START/STOP” and the pusher at five o’clock is engraved with the word “RESET”.

    The skeletal design features of the present lot speak to the charitable creativity Hublot undertook when manufacturing this timepiece.
    This unique offering will provide enthusiasts with a glimpse into what makes its future owner’s heart tick.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1980

    Hublot was founded by Carlo Crocco in 1980 and named after the French word for "porthole," which resembles their iconic bezel design. Hublot's first watch followed three years of research and was the first wristwatch to be fitted with a natural rubber strap. The brand's most recognizable watch today is the 'Big Bang', which was first launched in 2005 upon the arrival of CEO and shareholder Jean-Claude Biver. Other noteworthy models are the 'Classic Fusion' and 'King Power'.
