Brace yourselves, here is the intro from the wordsmiths at Hublot HQ -

Between the water and the air, the Big Bang becomes the horizon

In the blue of the sea as in that of the sky, aquatic and ethereal, both relaxed and sophisticated, the Big Bang Unico Sky Blue invites you on a journey. From Mykonos to Ibiza via Saint-Tropez, the background is set. Cut out of ceramic, this new model makes an innovative material your new basic.

So true confession time - I actually like Hublot. But I am honestly scoobied by the lengths the copywriters are going to in an effort to impress an audience that, sadly, is not likely taking the time to read the release.  Because what most of us would view as hyperbolic, seems to have morphed into the everyday lingo in Nyon. 

But because they took the time to send it, here's the rest of it and I will let you, gentle reader, draw your own conclusions -

What if you went on holiday... just by looking at your watch...
The time that ticks away on the Big Bang Unico Sky Blue inspires a light and relaxed rhythm. That of the summer, of time for oneself. With its wide 45-mm diameter case, it is an invitation to escape. In all simplicity, it has adopted the colours of the leading summer spots. With its combination of pale blue and white, it arrives on the most renowned of the Cyclades islands, where the blue waters of the Aegean Sea contrast with the whiteness of its lime-washed houses under a clear blue sky. Its relaxed style, sporting a velcro fabric strap with a sky-blue ceramic deployant buckle clasp, travels the blue waters of the Mediterranean to drop anchor in the Bay of Saint-Tropez, where the blues of the water and the sky unite endlessly. Sailboats then reach the wild coves of the White Island, where the nights blend into the days and where the Big Bang Unico Sky Blue puts on its second strap, in sky-blue and white rubber.

By serenely breaking up time to the rhythm of the Unico manufacture movement, the Big Bang Unico Sky Blue encourages this feeling of freshness and infinity.

From the blue of the sky to ceramic
Beneath a minimalist appearance, its pale blue reveals nonetheless a material whose resistance to wear is undisputed. This is ceramic, which Hublot has come to master. In 2019, Hublot created ceramic in bright colours, a patented world first. Since then, all – or almost all – of the Pantone colours are within its reach. The Big Bang Unico Sky Blue brings together two Hublot essentialsthe iconic Big Bang model and the Swiss watchmaker’s material of choice. A watch and a material that have been writing Hublot’s history for 15 years.
