There is a quote in Alice Walker’s 1982 epistolary novel The Colour Purple where she writes, “I think it pisses God off if you walk by the colour purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.” Whether or not Walker’s words played any part in the inspiration behind UK luxury Hublot replica watches’ latest creation, I think we can mutually agree that a similar sentiment exists around this Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Purple Sapphire, because you simply can’t not notice it and smile.
Carrying on from where last year’s juicy orange number left off, the purple version demonstrates AAA Swiss Hublot fake watches’ dedication to continuity and perseverance. “Innovation is not about launching isolated products, but rather being able to sustain a range over the long term with a consistent level of quality, while continuing to explore new frontiers,” says CEO Ricardo Guadalupe. “This is what we have been doing since 2016 with the first Big Bangs in a sapphire case and the Purple Sapphire version is the latest chapter and is once again a world first.”
On the rainbow’s kaleidoscope of colours, light purple is associated with light-hearted and romantic energies and this is exactly the vibe we’re picking up. It’s not as deep a purple as we’ve seen on various Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Chronographs, nor as superhero-purple as the Marvel-inspired concept AP that had a fair few Black Panther fans (and Serena Williams) over excited last year. No, this translucent purple is a completely new colour in the field of fine watchmaking – not even the most colourful of colourful brands like Swatch have a watch in this tone. Chemistry nerds will be interested to know that this new purple is a composite made of Al2O3 (aluminium oxyde) and chrome, though surely all Hublot superfans will savour such information – here’s looking at you, Takashi Murakami, Kylian Mbappe and Novak Djokovic.
Joking aside, if you weren’t already aware, Hublot’s R&D experts do really like to exercise their skill in the art of fusion and this is another case (and open caseback) in point.
One of the watch world’s most complicated traditions (and most daunting words) is the tourbillon. French for whirlwind, its purpose is essentially to help increase the accuracy of a watch through the mechanics of a watch escapement. Tourbillons are an example of pure and intricate craftsmanship that dates back to the early 1800s – cheers Abraham-Louis Breguet. Yet here it is being combined with never-before seen coloured sapphire. This marriage of tradition and innovation is the surefire fascination factor of what people love about high quality replica watches and though deep down we know what such a piece of watchmaking excellence will cost (£166,000), at least in this instance we get a row-front insight into how the inner workings of everything ticks.
Limited to 50 pieces, its patented One Click strap has the sort of express interchangeability system titanium folding clasp you can’t help but play with. All in all, this makes 1:1 perfect copy Hublot’s new Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Purple Sapphire watches a fine skeletonised piece at its most optimal, and in a week where the watch world is set to bear countless new fruits to ogle over, this one is our pick of the bunch of wholesale replica Hublot watches’ new releases, and will no doubt linger long in the mind.
As Walker once said, “Time moves slowly but passes quickly.” That, in a nutshell, is Swiss movements Hublot super clone watches – in little over 40 years, it’s taken us by surprise countless times, one Purple Sapphire watch at a time, to the point where now we know that what’s coming next will be worth the wait.
