It has been only one and a half years since the collaboration with Save Our Rhino Africa India (SORAI), Hublot announced the launch of its second limited edition Hublot Big Bang Unico SORAI ceramic 45 mm green chronograph replica 411.GX.5220.NR.SOA21. Limited to 100 pieces, part of the proceeds from the sale of this new and very environmentally friendly Hublot will be donated to Care for Wild, a large rhino sanctuary supported by SORAI in South Africa.
Contrasting that Hublot Big Bang Unico Sorai 45MM Limited Edition watch replica 411.CZ.4620.NR.SOA19 from 2019 (which took inspiration from the white rhinoceros and the dry savannah they inhabit), this new reference celebrates the arrival of East Africa’s wet summer season, which brings about a rich, deep green to the jungles and grasslands.
This new Hublot Big Bang replica 411.GX.5220.NR.SOA21 is meant to invoke the rich green landscape of South Africa in the summer and thus has a warm green micro-blasted ceramic case. Measuring 45mm wide and a bit over 15mm thick, the 2021 Big Bang Unico SORAI replica has a matching green skeletonized dial and markers and the watch comes with a pair of quick-change straps, including a camo-effect rubber and a green fabric strap.
The new replica Hublot Big Bang Unico SORAI, created for this occasion, features a striking case and bezel made from green ceramic. It comes with two straps, one in green fabric and another one made of black rubber with camouflage decor. This gives the watch a distinct theme, making it a toolwatch optima forma. The Big Bang Unico SORAI green watch replica watch is powered by caliber HUB1242, Hublot’s manufacture chronograph movement. This caliber features a flyback chronograph, controlled by a column wheel and with a power reserve of 72-hours. Partially visible through the complexly skeletonized dial, this movement offers time, date, and a 60-minute chronograph measurement with flyback capability.
SAORI And Hublot
Founded in 2001, Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary is the largest rhino sanctuary and orphanage in the world and you can find it tucked within the lush confines of the Barberton Nature Reserve in South Africa. Part of a greater UNESCO World Heritage site in this area, the reserve is more than 28,000 Ha and growing.

Hublot does not specifically list what percentage of each sale will go to SORAI and Care For Wild, but they do clearly state that it is a large portion of the sales and that those funds are earmarked for saving and caring for orphaned baby rhinoceroses. Have you ever seen a baby rhino? They don’t quite look real, and they are painfully cute.
COVID created a scenario in which there were fewer people watching the rhinos (both for protection and eco-tourism) and the poachers seized the opportunity to hunt rhinos with less opposition and attention. “On the ground, every day is a battle”, Pietersen says, “…a race against time by the teams of dedicated specialists who rescue, rehabilitate, and release these rhinos back into the wild.”
And so, this Hublot Big Bang green watch replica has a mission. In a world that has a seemingly endless supply of ecological and conservation needs, I do like that Hublot has a focused goal. Furthermore, I think it’s encouraging to see working elements from the conservation world – like SORAI – returning to Hublot for a second limited edition watch replica. While this is little more than speculation, I think it suggests that these partnerships can have a real effect.
Each of the 100 pieces will be individually numbered and will serve as a constant reminder to its owner that he/she contributed to the preservation of one of the most magnificent mammals on the planet; the rhino.
