Peace and camo: Hublot collaborates with Italia Independent on a new Big Bang Unico
Messenger of peace
It's a meeting of like minds — the Big Bang Unico Italia Independent is the brainchild of the artistic fusion between the distinct trendsetting fashion label and innovative watchmaker Hublot. The crusaders of creativity and peace, the co-opt between these brands is naturally one that wears the colour of pacifism, outfitted in an on-trend camouflage print that's stylish and structured.
A façade that stands out in spite of its camo skin, this singular Big Bang Unico makes a bold statement beyond advocating goodwill, donning a unique frame made from new Texalium technology which fuses carbon fibre overlaid with camo-printed silk. Tough yet lightweight, a clear transparency highlights the woodland pattern, and it's marked with the symbol for peace at the 9 o'clock index. The dial is secured with six titanium screws along the rim, and further augmenting its strength, are the titanium crown and bezel lugs made of black composite resin that surround the 45mm-sized frame.
An impressive veneer at a glance, the technical mastery of this timepiece extends to its intricately assembled interior, comprising of the Hublot in-house manufactured HUB 1242 movement that sports an automatic flyback chronograph with a column wheel and double clutch. A cutting-edge innovation that clothes itself in a facsimile of nature, this is the watch that beats with a purpose: The Big Bang Unico Italia Independent is a firm resolve to stand against any tribulation and any challenge.
The Hublot Big Bang Unico Italia Independent is available at The Hour Glass. Limited edition issue of 500 units in blue, and 250 units each in green and black.
