LNIB 99% excellent condition 100% Authentic, come with Box and Manual, as seen in photos.

Space shuttle tiles, tank armour- Cermet. What is interesting is that an unknown number of the early editions (possibly fifty) used a column wheel chronograph (called the HUB 44 RAC), and were identifiable as such on the dial. This watch is ex termly RARE....

Bullet Bang is characterized by the use of a ceramic and bronze alloy combined with other metals: the Cermet (micro-blasted for this watch). This alloy has properties of optimal resistance and hardness so using it for a watchcase is quite logical at the end. "The other interesting point is the case color: thanks to bronze, it is quite original and contrasts nicely with the dial and the strap. The watch is not very discrete (the diameter of the case is 44mm) but the color is seldom seen and finally subtle. Due to its stability, it is different from the bronze cases like for example the Gefica one which is voluntarily unstable to evolve with time."
The dial has good legibility, and the matte black case contrasts nicely with the polished hands, applied numbers and indices, which are bronzed to match the case.The pushers are made of stainless steel with black PVD. Next to the pushers, the side inserts are made of black composite resin. The crown is also stainless steel PVD. The Bullet Bang is surprisingly lightweight and easy to wear.
"The caliber is the Valjoux 7750. This can be a bit surprising because if you browse the internet to read the original press release of the Bullet Bang, the caliber was supposed to be a column-wheel one. Actually, first Bullet Bang were delivered with a column-wheel movement modified by Lajoux-Perret but for reasons of availability, maybe also for delay reasons, Hublot took the decision to use the classic movement of the Big Bang for the Bullet Bang what lead to a logical decrease of the retail price. We believe that around 50 Bullet Bang were delivered with the Lajoux-Perret caliber. These watches have the 303.BI.1190.RX refere while the other ones (let's say around 450) have the 301.BI.1190.RX reference. Be careful about this point if one day you consider buying a Bullet Bang. The pictured watch uses the classic 7750. Don't expect impressive finishing here: that's not the point. It features the characteristic Hublot rotor and the perlage of its plate. The advantage of the use of such caliber is its reliability on the long run but of course, it is not a high-end movement."
