HUBLOT Big Bang Unico GOURMET. DAMASCUS Steel. 200 Pieces Limited Edition.

The HUBLOT Big Bang Unico Gourmet is made out of DAMASCUS STEEL. This storied steel, historically known as Wootz and originating in the Damascus region in 300 BC, was known to forge the most resistant and cutting swords. Today, Damascus steel refers to a technique of hammering and folding steel to make it more resistant. This steel is often used to forge the kitchen knives prized by Michelin-starred chefs. It is now used to make the Big Bang, in a limited edition of 200 pieces – the Big Bang Unico Gourmet.
Also known as Damasteel, it iss made by the Swedish company DAMASTEEL (, which has mastered the fashioning of this material since 1676. This unique steel has greater resistance and a unique weave of patterned steel on its surface. Damasteel is not a traditional metal, it is a metal composite created from two types of steel. The first, 304L, is dark and made primarily of carbon; the other, 316L, is lighter – the two are forged, folded and folded again like a flaky puff pastry, then pressed. A matrix rendering that sees the two materials welded into each other, producing a patterned weave that is unique every time. These moiré patterns, like a fingerprint, are never identical.
To adapt perfectly to the watch’s dimensions, Hublot chose a unique design, a pattern that fuses age old savoir-faire with the innovation developed by Damasteel. Surface corrosion of the composite allows the stratification of the two steels to appear, revealing the pattern through a contrast of the materials. In addition to its highly recognizable aesthetics, Damascus steel is also renowned for being more durable than traditional steel.
