Hublot is not new to the digital watch game, first making its big splash with the 2018 FIFA Football World CupTM. It was at that time that Hublot presented their first connected watch model, the Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup and it was also used by all the referees during the tournament. However, that release was as such a bit ‘limited’ for the tournament. It turns out that Hublot believes in a digital future and now introduces the BIG BANG e.
The design is entirely following the Big Bang language. The case is cut from materials such as black ceramic or titanium in a “sandwich” construction, a style invented by Hublot in 2005.
Available in a 42 mm case, made from a choice of titanium (EUR 5100) or ceramic (EUR 5700). The hour numerals are metallised underneath the scratchproof sapphire crystal, which is covered with an AMOLED high definition touchscreen. The core of the watch is the Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear™ 3100 powering Google’s WearOS making this a very smartwatch indeed.
Just like a mechanical version of the Big Bang, its rotary crown with integrated pusher is used to activate the controls for its electronic module. Hublot guarantees the watch is water-resistant to a depth of 30 meters.
For the first time in Hublot’s history, this watch will be sold online on the brand’s website as well as on the Wechat network in China. It will then be available to purchase in boutiques and the traditional network.
