Behold the Hublot Big Bang Broderie Sugar Skull

Deadly glamour

Having featured ceramic, denim and now embroidery — Hublot’s unrestrained approach to watchmaking continues with its latest Big Bang addition

Hublot's Big Bang Broderie Sugar Skull is confidently unorthodox and hauntingly beautiful. Unexpected materials, cutting edge technology and intricate detailing make up the captivating timepiece. It's haute horology in all sense of the term. 

Borrowing an haute couture signature, embroidery (from Saint-Gall no less) takes center-stage on the watch. A colourful skull motif and arabesques brilliantly pops against the black-based timepiece. Also taking inspirations from the FW16 runways, highly reflective Lurex threads bring the motifs back from the dead in vibrant clamour. Turquoise, navy blue, pale pink, fuchsia, yellow, orange and violet, the time piece is a Dia de los Muertos parade on the wrist.

Featuring a black polished ceramic casing and organza silk-lined dial,  these fashion/interior-centric innovation hosts an in-house HUB1110 mechanical self-winding movement, equipped with an impressive 42-hour power reserve. The 41mm masterpiece adorned with crimson spinel-set bezel is a true fatal beauty.

The Big Bang Broderie Sugar Skull retails in Hublot and The Hour Glass boutiques.
