Hublot's newest timepiece, the Big Bang Unico Azur, pays homage to one of the world's most popular superyacht locales.
Hublot ambassadors and friends recently gathered at the exclusive Villa Cap Estel to celebrate summer in a luxurious and elegant setting. It was the perfect opportunity to live the “Hublot Loves Summer” experience and to unveil the latest special edition in honour of the Mediterranean.
Immersed in deep tones of blue, the Hublot Big Bang Unico Azur is a beautiful watchmaking interpretation of this eternal shade. Just 50 pieces of the new timepiece will be released and will be exclusively available at Hublot’s two French Riviera boutiques in Monaco and St Tropez, making them popular collectors items for the yachting set.
Set against a blue ceramic case, the luminescent hands and hour-markers of the Big Bang Unico Azur intersect like the wake of a passing ship at sea, observed through a porthole, transfigured by the white ceramic bezel. The 42 mm case, crafted from the same high-tech, hypoallergenic material, houses the HUB128 Unico chronograph self-winding movement.
This powerful combination is complemented by the dial and a choice of two straps: one in the iconic natural rubber and the other in a simple yet elegant white calfskin leather.
“A sunny and joyous occasion in the company of our friends such as Chiara Ferragni, Usain Bolt and Didier Deschamps for a glimpse of what the summer has in store,” says Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO, at the event. “The Big Bang Unico Azur pays homage to the French Riviera, a destination that has never ceased to inspire artists and designers alike. Its luminosity, distinctive blue, and unique Mediterranean lifestyle invite you to sail away, relax, spend precious moments with loved ones, and enjoy the sun.”
