If you are looking for a gold watch for yourself or as a gift that isn’t your proverbial gold watch, Hublot has a watch for you! Take a look at the Big Bang 301.PM.1780.PM and you won’t need to look any further. As with all Hublot watches, this watch is packed with great features, quality, and style.

The Big Bang series is designed to combine modern materials and advanced technology with classic style. You won’t find superior materials in any other timepiece. The 301.PM.1780.PM combines three advanced materials. The dial face is made of braided carbon fibers. Surrounded by resin, these fibers are extremely strong, yet light. Similar materials are used in aviation and space technology. The bezel and bracelet include ceramic components made from zirconium dioxide which is hard and strong. The case and bracelet also incorporate a beautiful red gold alloy developed by Hublot. This is truly a modern watch. Other key features include:

  • The HUB 4100 Automatic movement with 42 hour power reserve
  • Scratch resistant Sapphire crystal
  • Three dial chronograph complication
  • Date window between four and five o’clock
  • Rose gold indexes and hands with luminous fill
  • Gold printed minute track on outer edge of dial
  • Water resistant to 330 feet (100 meters)

All this technology would be good enough to satisfy any discriminating watch enthusiast, but the Hublot Big Bang watch also looks phenomenal. The chronograph sub-dials almost fade into the watch face, leaving a clean uncluttered dial that is easily read in full or dim light. The black and red gold combination isĀ  particularly striking, and flexible enough for any wardrobe. The iconic H-shaped screw heads, Hublot icon counter-balance on the second hand and black kevlar inserts in the case, crown, and push-button add depth to the style of the watch. For a more understated look consider the 301.PM.1780.RX variation with similar case and rubber bracelet.

Pros: Nothing will beat this watch for style, durability, and function. It’s a handsome timepiece to look at, made with durable materials that can go anywhere, and packed with technology to keep it accurate for a long time.

Cons: You will have to pay the price to get this amazing timepiece on your wrist. Even at the discount retailers, the watch sells for close to $30,000, with a suggested retail price of $40,100. Take a deep breath. This one is probably worth every pretty penny. The size of the watch may be somewhat overwhelming for a small-average wrist. The case diameter is 44 mm and it is 14.5 mm thick. It is, after all, a Big Bang.

You really can’t go wrong with this watch. Quality, technology, and style all in one lovely gold package.
