Hublot has just released a new special edition Big Bang Unico watch that’s dedicated to the conservation of Rhinos. Working with SORAI (Save Our Rhino Africa India), the 45mm microblasted ceramic Big Bang Unico takes on a beige-sand color with contrasting black pushers and hardware.
The skeleton dial continues the same color scheme as the case and strap, and features the silhouette of a rhino at the 9 o’clock subdial. Powered by Hublot’s HUB1242 movement, the watch has a power reserve of 72 hours and has a water resistance rating to 100 meters. The Big Bang Unico SORAI is finished with a display back that carries the SORAI name and has the watch edition number.
Priced at approximately $25,000 USD, and limited to 100 examples, proceeds from the Big Bang Unico SORAI will go towards SORAI’s efforts in saving rhinos.
