Hublot has created a new Big Bang timepiece in collaboration with Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto.
An intellectual rebel at heart, designer Yohji Yamamoto has revolutionized fashion and design. Like the monochrome featured on the Big Bang GMT All Black Yohji Yamamoto, Yohji Yamamoto’s iconic textiles and daring approach to motifs set the tone for the Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto.
The Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto sports its camouflage motif in a truly original way through a set of outlines, superimposed on the sapphire dial, and vulcanised on the strap – a technology that Hublot introduced to the watchmaking sector for the first time in 2019.
The Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto is released as a limited edition of 200 pieces.
Its 45 mm case is cut from matt black ceramic and its sapphire dial features superimposed outlines which form biomorphic patches in an echo of the artist’s camouflage motif, with his signature at 6 o’clock.
The original construction of the camouflage motif extends onto the strap where each of the constituent shapes of the outline is cut out individually, assembled, and then fused together using the vulcanisation process. This is brand new technology for the watchmaking sector, reinforcing Hublot’s position as the first brand to use vulcanisation in the creation of its straps.
The second strap is a black fabric option. The Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto houses the Unico manufacture movement, with a 72-hour power reserve.
