Introduction

Known for their unique take on watchmaking and horological design, it serves as no surprise that Hublot’s timepieces are often quite different from the rest of the market’s. Championing that very idea is their Big Bang “All Black Drive,” a limited edition model launched in 2007 for Hublot’s very first boutique, their boutique in Paris. Offering just 50 pieces, this reference is a left-handed “destro” variant of Hublot’s most popular model, the Big Bang, with its winding crown at 9 o’clock. However, surprisingly this model was not designed solely for left-handed wearers, and instead for right-handed wearers so that its chronograph functions could be more easily operated by a right-handed wearer that wore their timepiece on their left hand and operated their watch with their right hand, a rather intuitive piece of design. Constructed of black ceramic, its case is coupled with an all-black dial that features blacked-out Arabic numerals and hands that help create an incredibly sleek aesthetic that is rather understated, not something typically associated with Hublot.

THE DIAL

Complimenting its black construction is a blacked-out dial with black hands, numerals and inscriptions, meaning this timepiece certainly lives up to its name.

THE CONSTRUCTION

Made of ceramic and titanium and sitting on a rubber strap, the All Black Drive is incredibly light on the wrist, even considering its 42.5mm diameter.

TIMING MACHINE READOUT

This reading was taken (crown down) with a ONEOF Accuracy Boutique Edition timing machine at time of cataloging. It is provided as a courtesy only, and shall not be construed as a warranty or guarantee of any kind. Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale for more information.

Condition

Watch is in very good overall condition. Some signs of wear visible along the metal surfaces of the case, the clasp has a scratch above the HUBLOT mark. There is a small scratch on the crystal, as well as a couple scratches along the bezel.

Our Perspective

Combining its intuitive "Destro" design for right-handers and blacked-out construction the All Black Drive is an interesting and sleek timepiece that acts as an extension of Hublot's signature design language as it pushes boundaries in a new way that only Hublot could achieve.
