Hublot collaborates with a British artist, designer, multidisciplinary creative director and Hublot’s ambassador Samuel Ross on the limited-edition Big Bang Tourbillon Samuel Ross.
Samuel Ross graduated from Leicester De Montfort University in 2012 with a first-class honors’ degree in graphic design and illustration. He has collaborated with many brands and creative outlets – from Oakley and Nike to Dr. Martens and Mackintosh – and launched his men’s Luxury Sportswear label A-Cold-Wall in late 2015, and his design studio SR_A in 2019. The same year, he was awarded the prestigious Hublot Design Prize, and a year later was announced as an official brand ambassador, an occasion marked by the unveiling of REFORM, a sculpture designed to encapsulate 40 years of Hublot.
The 44mm Big Bang Tourbillon Samuel Ross – the designer’s first wristwatch collaboration with Hublot – is characterized by his signature use of color and love of stark geometry and urban design.
The hexagon of the Big Bang case is reflected in the titanium honeycomb mesh used on the sapphire dial, case, case back and strap. Conceived as a wearable sculpture, the timepiece is durable and ergonomic. Its lightweight, openworked titanium structure and malleable rubber strap ensure comfort on the wrist. The watch features orange color on the strap, the crown, tourbillon bridge and lateral bumpers that protect the case. This vibranthue is a glowing contrast to the sober grey of the satin-finished case and bezel.
The 282-component, manufacture HUB6035 calibre within beats at 3 Hz and gives 72 hours of power reserve.
Just 50 pieces will be produced, each one a piece of art that brings a new perspective and a new visual language to watchmaking.
To celebrate the launch, Ross’s signature colors will grace Hublot’s 5th Ave boutique in New York City. The takeover will be repeated in Hublot stores across the globe, bringing the Samuel Ross universe to the world of horology.
