BIG BANG INTEGRAL TOURBILLON HIGH JEWELLERY: MADE INTEGRALLY FROM DIAMOND
” Every year, for the last 14 years, we have created a piece or a collection of exceptional High Jewellery. This year, the Big Bang Integral Tourbillon High Jewellery is our 30th unique piece of High Jewellery. Our primary goal: to surpass all our limits, to challenge ourselves to go beyond our initial expertise of watchmaking, and to achieve the exceptional with watches that are entirely set with precious stones and smash all the records in terms of working hours, the number of carats, the combination of types of setting, and selling point. In so doing, our watchmaking know-how—in terms of mechanisms and complications—and our identity—the fusion of materials—remain essential. Hundreds of hours are spent on preparation—from the design, with regard to setting the precious stones, to searching for and cutting the stones, and to the setting itself—because setting a watch like the Big Bang Integral Tourbillon High Jewellery is a true technical and aesthetic achievement. We never give in to doubt because we like to make the impossible possible.” – Ricardo Guadalupe, HUBLOT CEO
The Big Bang Integral Tourbillon High Jewellery brings together in one piece everything that defines the identity and distinction of Hublot: its automatic tourbillon calibre, which was fully designed and manufactured in-house; its spectacular architecture set with 484 baguette-cut diamonds, totalling 31 carats; its fully integrated aesthetics from the case to the strap; and its 100% visible mechanics on the dial side thanks to the sapphire.
Big Bang Integral Tourbillon High Jewellery
Launched in 2020, the Big Bang Integral, with its bracelet integrated into the case, made its one-piece architecture an instantly adopted style. The model presents a visual balance, and proportions that are accentuated by the invisible setting work for its 484 baguette-cut diamonds. Its distinctive three-mesh bracelet with sharp edges alone accounts for 20.5 carats of diamonds (304 baguette-cut diamonds). The aesthetic and technical mastery of the piece goes all the way to its sapphire dial whose raised platform of baguette diamonds reveals a skeleton movement. In addition to its components that appear to be levitating, the 6H tourbillon features some atypical audacity: automatic rewinding, a micro-rotor that is visible on the dial-side and three transparent sapphire bridges, combined in a movement that was completely designed and manufactured in-house: the HUB6035. The Big Bang Integral Tourbillon High Jewellery is a fusion of the Manufacture’s innovation and know-how with High Jewellery in a single 43-mm-diameter piece, all in perfect balance.
So many millions, so many diamonds, in 14 years!
Since its One Million $ model in 2007, Hublot has created a unique piece of High Jewellery every year at a price equalling or exceeding one million dollars. Each time, the watchmaker combines the iconic design of one of its collections, one or more complications, with the most spectacular setting techniques, often scoring world firsts with its own records and overcoming, as usual, technical challenges that have never before been attempted. Among them, the 5 Million $ in 2012 with 14 months of work and 1,282 diamonds including more than 100 carats of baguette-cut diamonds. Or, in 2015 to celebrate the 10 years of the Big Bang, a collection of 10 Big Bang Unico models, each worth $1 million. While these exceptional pieces have mostly invisibly set baguette-cut white diamonds, the watchmaker has also ventured into pieces with black diamonds and coloured stones, creating a fusion of all kinds of stone cuts and settings—who could forget the Clou de Paris and rail setting of its anniversary collection in 2015?

Founded in Switzerland in 1980, HUBLOT is defined by its innovation, which began with the highly original combination of gold and rubber. This “Art of Fusion” stems from the imagination of its visionary Chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, and has been driven forward by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe since 2012.
The release of the iconic, multi-award-winning Big Bang in 2005 paved the way for new flagship collections (Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang), with complications ranging from the simple to the highly sophisticated, establishing the extraordinary DNA of the Swiss watchmaking house and ensuring its impressive growth.
Keen to preserve its traditional and cutting-edge expertise, and guided by its philosophy to “Be First, Different and Unique”, the Swiss watchmaker is consistently ahead of the curve, through its innovations in materials (scratch-resistant Magic Gold, ceramics in vibrant colours, sapphire), and the creation of Manufacture movements (Unico, Meca-10, Tourbillon).
HUBLOT is fully committed to creating a Haute Horlogerie brand with a visionary future: a future which is fused with the key events of our times (FIFA World CupTM, UEFA Champions League, UEFA EUROTM) and the finest ambassadors our era has to offer (Chiara Ferragni, Pelé, Kylian Mbappé, Usain Bolt, Novak Djokovic).
