To mark the Chinese New year (01 Feb 2022), Hublot is offering a limited edition version of its barrel-shaped timepiece in Frosted Carbon and gold.
Based on the barrel-shaped 42mm Spirit of Big Bang, the Year of the Tiger watch is a striking execution of Hublot’s famous fusion principles. This is the first Spirit of Big Bang with a case made of Frosted Carbon and 18-carat yellow-gold, a black and gold fusion of materials Hublot has used in its collection only once before.
With its Frosted Carbon and 18-carat yellow-gold case, the Spirit of Big Bang Carbon Gold Tiger is also a technical first for the brand. This unique, complex, beautiful material, developed by Hublot, fuses carbon fibre with gold to create a unique finish defined by its glimmering gold inclusions.
The watch is limited to 200 pieces and no two will be exactly the same. The patterns created by the process are random, just like a tiger’s majestic stripes.
The watch is powered by the Hublot self-winding skeleton chronograph movement HUB4700, a descendant of the historic high-frequency Swiss Made El Primero calibre, introduced in 1969. This contemporary, highly precise automatic movement features a number of technical innovations, including a low-friction silicon regulating organ. The watch has a 50-hour power reserve and is water-resistant to 10 ATM (100 metres).
The Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Year of the Tiger watch comes on a black rubber strap, elegantly shaped to mimic a tiger’s stripes. It’s fastened by a black ceramic and black-plated titanium deployant buckle clasp.
Thanks to Hublot’s patented One-Click System, this can be changed to the supplied yellow-gold-coloured, Velcro fastened fabric strap quickly and easily by its owner.
The Spirit of Big Bang Carbon Gold Tiger watch is available worldwide from 01 Feb 2022.
