Hands-On: Forty-Eight Hours with the Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Ceramic Carbon Beige Camo
Because the thing is, Hublot is very good at doing what they set out to do, and judging them on the merits of fulfilling their intention seems like the only fair way to evaluate them, or any brand for that matter. Hublot, as it exists today, is essentially a brand full of statement pieces, but made with intention and a real focus on materials. The common gripes that they’re gaudy, or over-the-top, or even overpriced miss the point entirely. They are exactly what they are supposed to be. For a watch to be “gaudy” it would have to be so unintentionally, and as far as I’m concerned, a watch that’s over-the-top should wear that attribute as a strength.
Breaking Down the Key Points:
- Hublot is often overlooked by snobby watch enthusiasts, but the brand is good at what it does.
- Hublot is focused on creating statement pieces with a real focus on materials.
- The Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Ceramic Carbon Beige Camo is an imposing watch with a mix of materials that is core to the brand’s identity.
- The camo pattern on the watch is inspired by the American west and a rough desert terrain.
- The watch received a lot of attention and positive feedback at a watch event, despite preconceived notions about the brand.
- The dial of the watch is camo-themed, which can make its legibility a challenge, but the bezel and strap take the camo motif to the extreme.
- The watch’s size and design may not be suited for everyone’s tastes, but it stands out and generates conversation.
- Hublot is a creative brand that embraces exuberance, youthfulness, and experimentation in its designs.
Overall, the Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Ceramic Carbon Beige Camo is a bold and attention-grabbing watch that may not be for everyone. However, it showcases Hublot’s creativity and intention in creating statement pieces with a focus on materials. The watch’s camo theme and unique design elements generate conversation and intrigue, even among watch enthusiasts who may have preconceived notions about the brand. So, before dismissing Hublot, it’s worth taking a closer look and appreciating the brand’s ability to create watches that are exactly what they set out to be.
