In the vibrant world of luxury watches, innovation and responsibility have found a unique intersection with the unveiling of Hublot‘s latest timepiece – the Big Bang Unico Titanium Green Ceramic. Exclusively showcased at the Salón Internacional Alta Relojería (SIAR) in Mexico City from October 17 – 19, 2023, this limited edition timepiece is a bold step towards sustainable watchmaking.
The standout feature of the Big Bang Unico Titanium Green Ceramic is its revolutionary strap. Breaking new ground in the watchmaking sector, Hublot has adorned the rubber strap with a second skin made from the iconic Mexican cactus. This marks a first for both Hublot and the industry at large, an innovation that could only be fittingly unveiled in the land of the cactus.
The decision to use cactus skin for the strap is not merely a design choice but a conscious effort to address environmental concerns. As the world grapples with ecosystem damage, Hublot’s embrace of plant-based straps presents a sustainable alternative to traditional leather. The cactus strap combines durability, vibrant color, and high performance, all while being almost infinitely renewable, 100% natural, and produced without harmful chemicals.
Beyond being an eco-friendly choice, cactus skin offers practical benefits for watch enthusiasts. Non-allergenic, nearly scratch-resistant, and available in a variety of finishes and colors, it aligns seamlessly with Hublot’s commitment to innovative and responsible watchmaking.
The Big Bang Unico Titanium Green Ceramic not only pays homage to the Mexican landscape but also draws inspiration from the national flag. Dressed in a deep, uniform green reminiscent of the flag’s first stripe symbolizing the nation’s spirit of independence, this timepiece is a powerful blend of symbolism, history, and craftsmanship.
Hublot’s dedication to precision and craftsmanship is evident in every detail of the Big Bang Unico Titanium Green Ceramic. The colored ceramic bezel, mirroring the natural hues of the cactus strap, undergoes meticulous micro-blasting and polishing, ensuring scratch resistance and lasting allure. The lacquered flange and small-seconds at 3 o’clock complement the bezel in a harmonized green color, creating a visual symphony.
The skeleton design of the watch exposes the inner workings of Hublot’s Manufacture calibre Unico, showcasing the iconic column wheel at 6 o’clock. The date disc, embossed with precision, adds a touch of artistry to the heart of the small-seconds, maintaining the watch’s geometry and harmony.
To further enhance the wearer’s experience, the Big Bang Unico Titanium Green Ceramic comes with a second strap featuring Velcro® attachment. This additional strap combines functionality with style, allowing for a seamless transition from casual to formal occasions.
