Hublot Big Bang Broderie
Always true to its principle of fusion, Hublot connects traditional handcrafting with twenty-first-century technology, and takes us on a tour of Swiss savoir-faire, beginning with St. Gallen embroidery. A reference in this age-old art, Bischoff supplies the leading couture houses and luxury lingerie firms. Working with Hublot, Bischoff imagined an exclusive embroidered motif that could fuse with the iconic Big Bang design: a skull on the dial, studded with 11 diamonds, that will appeal to her rebellious side, then flowing arabesques on the bezel and strap. Once embroidered on tulle, they travel from St. Gallen to the Swiss Jura, where they are moulded in carbon fibre, using an exclusive, specially developed process, in order to accentuate the texture. The components are then assembled at the Hublot manufacture in Nyon, where the watch is brought to life by the HUB1110 automatic movement. Each rendition is proposed as a 200-piece limited series.
