The All Black Carat Big Bang Men's Watch by Hublot Geneve

Are you shopping around for a luxury men’s watch? Do you want all the basics plus a couple unique features? Do you want something with dark accents and nothing too decadent in appearance? Then look this way for a review on the Hublot Geneve All Black Carat Big Bang 44 mm watch 301 C1 1110 RX 1900.

The Big Bang Hublot watch is known to have received numerous awards and acknowledgments for its intricate mixture and materials. It is a key example of Hublot’s desire to create watches with a fusion of styles. This fusion includes making timepieces with a cocktailing of gold, rose gold, ceramic, diamonds, tantalum, and rubber. The Big Bang is thought of by some as one of the most advanced watches recently released by being not only lighter than its predecessors, but also by bringing together traditional Swiss Horology and modern self-winding movements.

Facts of the Hublot Geneve Big Bang All Black Carat 44 mm 301.C1.1110.RX.1900:

  • Size: 44mm
  • Case: Black Ceramic
  • Bezel: 18K White Gold Black PVD set with 48 Black Baguette Diamonds for 2.80 ct. Black Composite Resin Lateral Inserts and Bezel Lugs.

  • Clasp: Fold Clasp
  • Movement: HUB 4100 Self-Winding Chronograph Movement

What makes this watch desirable? It is a rare find. The company only makes a couple of these timepieces a year. If you are a man that follows the trends and can afford it, it has been said to grab for this watch if you can find one.

What makes it not so desirable? Its price for one ($52,525!). How comfortable are you really going to be doing anything that might get your watch the slightest damaged, or worse lost or stolen? Secondly is its durability. It may be trendy and in style with its mixture of materials but will the appeal still be there in five to ten years? Also, with the strap being made of rubber, it makes me nervous that it could be ripped or torn easily, and lost, maybe all in one fell swoop.

Who is this watch ideal for? Not anyone in the average business crowd. The Big Bang is hard to come by and an expensive extravagance. It is marketed for an exclusive and elite international man who does not necessarily need to know the time (since the time makers aren’t exactly numbers), nor does he need to if he makes the kind of money to afford such a piece.
