Noble Sports Watch Hublot Big Bang 41mm Series 341.Cv.130.Rx.114 Watch

Hublot, established in the 1980s, is famous for its individual design style and different materials. It relies on its unique design sense to easily break into the market. It is said that the first person to collect this watch was a big man-the Greek king. Hublot is one of the few watch brands that adheres to the ‘single product’ concept, that is, a watch, divided into three classic, elegant and active series, each series is equipped with its famous black rubber strap. The BigBang series products launched by Hublot in 2005 have won numerous awards, and have been unanimously recognized by people from all walks of life and authoritative media. Today we bring you such a successful watch. .130.rx.114 watch, let’s enjoy this watch with me next.

  Since the advent of the Hublot Big Bang BigBang series, it has been loved for its unique design style and matching precious metal case and rubber strap. At present, this series has evolved many tourbillons, BigDate windows, power reserve hands and Double-second chase. The concept of fusion is brought to life through continuous exploration of rare materials, combinations and new alloys. Models are also available in two sizes: 41 mm or 44 mm in diameter.

  This watch uses a sapphire scratch-resistant crystal glass, which looks faintly blue from the side, and has another taste. In fact, the dial is black.

  This one can clearly see that the color of the dial is black, and the outer ring of the case is full of diamonds. I don’t know if you think the black table-set diamonds are beautiful in color matching. I personally think that this is a relatively low-key matching style, luxurious and not public.

  Located at two o’clock is the chronograph start / pause button, which is also made of non-slip rubber in the middle of the button. Not only does it play a non-slip role, but it can be more comfortable when pressed.

  The button at four o’clock is the chronograph reset button. I don’t know if you have noticed that this watch uses a short lug design. The result of this design is that it is more troublesome to design between the three buttons. If the design is not good, it will affect the use. In my actual use, the watch button design of Hublot is still ergonomic and easy to use.

  The crown is engraved with Hublot’s logo. Two screws on each side of the crown not only strengthens itself, but also protects the crown and beautifies it.

  The outer ring of the case is set with 114 diamonds, with a total weight of 1.22 carats. The outer ring is fixed by Hublot’s ‘H’ screws, with a total of 6 large H screws.

  The hour and 5 minute scales on the dial are made of chrome, which adds a strong metallic feel to the entire black dial. The minute scales use red to add vitality to the dial.

Between four and five o’clock is the date display window.

  Looks like a relatively short lug design, the black stainless steel case and the black rubber strap are integrated, they are connected by a few small screws.

  The strap is worn in a folding buckle style, and the folding buckle part is also color treated. Black is used to match the color of the entire watch.

The rubber strap is completely stylish and quite stylish.

Close-up of a metal buckle with not only H-shaped screws but also the English name of Hublot.

After wearing the thickness, you can find out.

  This watch uses sapphire crystal back to the back of the case, we can easily see the movement of the movement. Next I will tell you about the movement used in this watch. This watch uses Hublot’s HUB4300 automatic mechanical movement. This movement has a total of 278 parts and 37 gems. . It can provide a 42-hour power reserve. It belongs to Hublot’s relatively high-end movement and is a trusted movement.

Let’s take a closer look at this movement.

  Finally, we have a hands-on photo to show you the effect. This is a female watch with a 41 mm diameter. It is a slightly larger model in the female watch, but the outer ring is full of diamonds and it shows a trace of female Feminine.
  Summary: The Big Bang series of Hublot has always been known for its unique design style, and only Hublot dares to design a 41 mm large-diameter women’s watch, but Hublot cleverly adds diamond design to make the entire watch not only retained The unique sports style of the Hublot Big Bang series does not look too tough, it is a watch that girls who like sports can choose.

11 Answers About The Lange Grand Complication Watch

Grand Complication unveiled a new page in history

1. What does Grand Complication mean to Lange?

This is the most complicated wristwatch ever made by Lange and even the German watch industry. Let us enter the field of horology that has never been known before. This watch cleverly combines seven complex devices, some of which are extremely rare. This is not only a tribute to the brand’s tradition, but also the beginning of a new era in Lange’s history.

2. What does ‘New Era’ mean?

This watch is composed of multiple complicated devices, including extremely complicated sounding timepieces, which fully reflects Saxony’s unique watchmaking culture. During the creative process, we not only raised the level of watchmaking knowledge, but also issued infinite creativity . It is no exaggeration to say that this project opened the door to many ideas and designs.

11 answers about Lange Grand Complication watches

Grand Complication’s calendar display can be switched simultaneously with constant amplitude

3. What was the biggest challenge when developing Grand Complication?

The whole project is like a dangerous adventure, constantly exploring in the complex world of watchmaking. The perfect coordination of multiple complex devices and hundreds of parts is extremely demanding. For example, all the perpetual calendar displays will be switched at midnight, and the big bell will ring at this time. We must ensure that the amplitude does not decrease. In the end, this problem was properly solved, and we let the watch owner operate the needle tracking device at the same time.

4. What are the requirements for a watchmaker to assemble a Grand Complication movement? How long does the entire process take?

Assembly must strictly follow the requirements of precision and interaction of each complex device. Only the most talented and experienced watchmakers can fully grasp the assembly process of the movement and its 876 parts. Even a skilled watchmaker can take almost a year to complete this task. The whole process requires the highest level of concentration, experience and sensitivity, and it must be very patient.

Grand Complication equipped with Lange’s own L1902 movement

5. What happens during the long assembly process?

During the one-year assembly process, all meticulous and comprehensive testing procedures are completed. For example, the bell device is monitored day and night. The watchmaker will evaluate the relevant records to check whether the device is ringing accurately every quarter of an hour. If there is a deviation, it will be removed and readjusted, assembled and inspected to ensure that everything is working properly. The moving parts of the tolling device must coordinate with each other to achieve the effect of ‘free movement without shaking’.

6. Why did you choose to launch this work of great significance to the history of the watch factory in 2013?

The theme of 2013 is ‘Tradition makes uniqueness’, so we chose to present this watch this year to celebrate the brand’s watch tradition. In fact, Lange has always followed the tradition and created a unique brand. Lange is keeping his pace and surpassing himself. Grand Complication perfectly reflects this philosophy.

7. What message does Lange convey through Grand Complication?

Lange’s product developers and watchmakers are dedicated to extending the boundaries of precision mechanical watchmaking. Grand Complication is the best example of this. More importantly, this watch contains our commitment to collectors: With a never-ending spirit, we continue to innovate in the world of precision watchmaking and bring more meaningful contributions.

8. Undertaking Grand Complication, what direction does Lange have in the future?

In principle, we will not comment on future developments. However, we are working on several product development projects. The collectors are thirsty for watches with sophisticated devices. In order to meet people’s expectations for Lange, we have launched a number of exciting works in the past two decades, and we will create more attractive new products in the future. In other words, our future products will always adhere to the Lange benchmark: superb watchmaking technology and unparalleled level of craftsmanship.

9. How is Grand Complication different from Lange’s pocket watch (No. 42500), which was repaired in 2009?

Grand Complication’s research and development process is completely independent, elevating technology and craftsmanship requirements to a whole new level. From the end of the 19th century to the beginning of the 20th century, Lange’s complicated watchmaking level was unprecedented, and the technical characteristics of this watch were inspired from it. The pocket watch number 42500 is perhaps the most famous and prominent example. The knowledge gained in repairing this pocket watch brought us a lot of important insights and new impetus, and the development of Grand Complication also benefited from this. .

10. Why does Grand Complication sell for nearly two million euros?

While paying attention to the price, we need to know that it took seven years for product developers to fully grasp the technical difficulties of this watch, and the entire series will only produce six.

11. Have all the six watches mentioned above been sold?

It is true that there are many senior Lange collectors interested in this watch and it is in short supply. As for which potential buyer will eventually get this form, we have not yet finalized. Unfortunately, we were unable to make more Grand Complications, as this would consume a lot of resources and affect the development of other new projects.
