Hublot Big Bang Apple Watches


While it hasn’t been explicitly marketed as such, this “Apple Bang” series of watches from Hublot new for 2009 is likely a line for the ladies. As most Big Bang watches are 44mm wide and up, this watch is just 41mm wide. The name “Big Bang Apple” of course comes from New York’s nickname ‘The Big Apple.” Now with more “bang.” The two new watches feature candy colored green stained alligator straps with rubber inserts. The green on the case of the watch is also rubber or resin, while the bezel is lined with a gem called Tsavorite (48 of them in a baguette cut). The gem is actually a bright green colored garnet that is found in Tanzania.

The Hublot Big Bang Apple can be had in gold or in black (comprised of black ceramic, and black gold – Called the Big Bang Black Apple). Both watches feature titanium screws and signature black Hublot rotor on the HUB4300 automatic movement visible through the caeeback window. The dial on both watches is pretty standard Big Bang, a design that is both legible and attractive. In femme form, the watch still looks good. Sure it has enough aggressive charm, but the look is perfect for the growing number of women who prefer to wear larger, masculine looking watches with a female twist (bright green!). The dial is white with gold applied markers and hands, or black colored with black nickel hands.

Hublot touted this Big Bang Apple as something special before it was released. Some fans were a bit dissapointed that it was just another color scheme change for the Big Bang line. That may be true, but looking at it in a vacuum, it is still a pretty nice and still fresh looking design from a well regarded watch maker.
