The Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 transports us into the future of mechanical timekeeping with its in-house-developed 10-day movement and its complex design.
Its innovative mix of materials, its prominent screws, and the wheels and racks that can be seen from the front make it look like a post-apocalyptic time machine.
The Meca-10 was awarded the “Red Dot Best of the Best” design prize in 2017.
The Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 boasts an even more richly detailed overall appearance thanks to its case’s black plastic middle section, a trapezoid-shaped push-piece to operate the quick-change strap system, and the visible and modern skeletonized movement. It’s clear to the viewer that the complex architecture with numerous parts that comprise the case is costly and labor-intensive.
Plates, axes, wheels, gears. Let your imagination run free.
For all those who spent hours building and dismantling technical constructions, experimenting in the engineering world, the Big Bang MECA-10 offers itself as a transitional object. It took two years to develop and refine a new manufacture movement with on-board mechanics. Atypical architecture with Meccano-type design.
Hublot has created a new manufacture movement. Entirely conceived and developed in house, the HUB1201 is a skeleton mechanical movement with manual winding and a 10-day power reserve. There are 223 components, straight and curved perforated metallic strips, crown gears, racks, plates, axes, and ratchet wheels. An original assembly with ultra-stylised mechanics that will make you want to go straight to your workbench to build and dismantle it over and over again. A piece that draws inspiration from our childhood memories, when our days were filled with the games and excitement of building and creating small machines and structures. An object that takes us back to a child’s emotion and continuous discovery.
An innovative construction with a skeleton dial revealing the detailed mechanics of the movement. This familiar and atypical design is constructed to create an audacious and original mechanical overlap of its power reserve. The 10-day power reserve allowed for the mechanism to be designed in manual mode to further reinforce this connection between man and his machine.
