The legend lives on. Hublot is coinciding the grand opening of their Beijing boutique with a specially crafted timepiece that pays homage to the world's greatest martial artist — the Spirit of Big Bang Bruce Lee Be Water.
Affiliated with the Bruce Lee Foundation that is staging a commemoration to the master with a memorial exhibition aptly titled, 'Be Water My Friend' — a nod to his fluid fighting style and his philosophy of water — Hublot participates in this special occasion with a timepiece that captures the essence of the Kung Fu icon.
Representing a milestone, and the alignment between Hublot and Bruce Lee's vision of merging tradition with innovation, the Spirit of Big Bang Bruce Lee Be Water is inspired by the his life and details a dragon pattern on the dial. A tonneau frame in all-black microblasted ceramic encases the HUB4700 automatic winding skeletonised movement equipped with a 50-hour power reserve. The stylised dragon coils atop this intricate mechanism with the date display window on its side at the 4.30 mark, and is also flanked by hands signifying the chronograph, minutes and hours at 9, 3 and 6 o'clock respectively.
Fitted with a blue alligator leather strap stitched onto natural rubber to evoke Lee's water philosopy, this creation immortalises Bruce Lee in haute horlogerie and venerates his influential presence and life's work — a true embodiment of greatness.
The Hublot Spirit of Bruce Lee Be Water is a limited edition issue of 100 pieces.
