Hublot Big Bang Zermatt Collection – Big Bang Chronograph Zermatt Edition 44mm (Gent’s Model) and Big Bang Chronograph Zermatt Edition 41mm (Ladies’ Model)

One cannot think of Switzerland without thinking of the Matterhorn. For the new Big Bang Zermatt 44 mm edition, which pays tribute to the most famous Swiss mountain, Hublot has created a bezel based on 100% natural slate. Merged with carbon, the slate exerts its great strength with reinforced resistance.

The slate in the Big Bang Zermatt is extracted from the rocky seam of the Alps that surround the Matterhorn. Two models sport the bezel in carbon and slate composite. The Big Bang 44 mm in stainless steel or 5N gold, which, under their rock, also contains the HUB4100 chronograph movement, visible beneath a sapphire back.

For women, the steel bezel is set with a carat of diamonds and, beneath the engraving of the Matterhorn, its micro-blasted steel and sapphire back houses the HUB 4300 self-winding movement, with its 42-hour power reserve. The three models have a blue slate dial to perfect their Alpine look.

The Matterhorn is engraved at 9 o’clock on the small seconds counter for the 44-m models and at 3 o’clock for the set version, distinguished by its unique silhouette, its 4 faces coming together in a high pyramid called the “roof”.

Standing 4,478 m tall, it peacefully watches over all the slate roofs of the village of Zermatt, including that of the Hublot Chalet-Boutique. Inaugurated in 2016, this boutique embodies all the principles of ‘Swissitude’ held dear by Hublot. Located at Bahnhofstrasse 27, it is reminiscent of the traditional barns of the old village of Zermatt, whose stone and timber represent its original architecture.
