Show You The Hublot Big Bang Atomic D-38 Mens Replica Watches

Ten years ago in 2004, Hublot mens replica first released the Big Bang: a timepiece that would forever change the brand and would help put then owner (now Chairman) Jean-Claude Biver on the minds of the general public as well as arguably make him the most important person in the modern replica watch industry. Under Jean-Claude Biver, the design philosophy at Hublot has been "fusion," or rather the combination of a range of materials in their ever expanding catalog of Best Swiss Replica Watches Online.

Over the years, Hublot has produced timepieces that have featured an array of rare or unique materials not often seen in replica watch making, such as tungsten or magnesium, and developed their own materials and alloys such as King Gold and Magic Gold. The pursuit of new and unique materials for horology is really the search for emotion and exclusivity. As one of the ultimate lifestyle brands, Hublot wanted to do something special and very difficult for the 10th anniversary of the Big Bang.
Uranium As An Exclusive Luxury Metal

As a limited edition, Hublot presents the Big Bang Atomic D-38, the first ever wrist replica watch produced from the radioactive material uranium. According to Hublot, the company wanted to produce something that no one else has done or would do. Their desire was to exhibit the type of risk-taking audacity Hublot clients have come to expect from the brand. Without holding back, it was decided to use a secret resource owned by the brand.



A few years back, a loyal Hublot client was not able to pay for an order of replica watches due to an unforeseen financial scenario. Upon Hublot attempting to collect the bill, the client proposed a barter in order to settle the debt. Historically, being a dedicated enthusiast of the brand, Hublot decided to hear the client out. After much negotiating (and a series of rejected offers) it turned out that the collector was interested in more than just replica watches. It happened to be that the client was also a sort of amateur geologist, and through circumstances under which Hublot did not request further explanation, happened upon a bulk of depleted uranium metal, which is also known as D-38.

Hublot admits that while even depleted uranium is still radioactive, it is not nearly as dangerous as Uranium U-238 or U-235. In fact, Uranium D-38 even has some civilian uses. Of course, uranium D-38 is also used for a lot of military applications. In addition to being used as radioactive shielding material, the extreme density of D-38 makes it a prime material for ballistic ordnance as well as armor plating. Hublot says that "wearing this stuff is like wearing a shield of armor on your wrist!"
