Hublot Big Bang Unico Ledger is a landmark watch created in partnership with Ledger, the world’s leading and most secure crypto and digital asset platform, already trusted by 4 million customers worldwide. The watch merges high-end crypto technology and traditional watch craftsmanship.
There are three core elements in the Big Bang Unico Ledger package: the watch, a limited-edition Ledger NanoXcrypto wallet, and a special sapphire watch box.
The watch is based on the Big Bang Unico, which has a 42mm black ceramic case and a skeletonised automatic chronograph in-house movement. Most striking is the watch’s high-contrast golden bezel, cast in solid “Electrum”, a natural gold and silver alloy that was used by Lydian societies in around 580-590 BC to mint the earliest known coins.
For the watch, Hublot’s R&D department developed a special stainless version of the alloy containing a 50/50 gold-silver mix. The Bitcoin Latin motto “Vires in Numeris”, or strength in numbers, is stamped six times into the bezel’s outer edge. Together, these themes capture the spirit of the world’s oldest and newest currencies. The case-back is engraved with the Ledger logo and the 50-piece limited edition number.
Packaged with the watch is the Ledger & Hublot Nano X, a limited edition crypto key that will only be available with the watch. The Nano X is Ledger’s signature digital asset wallet, a market-leading Bluetooth-enabled piece of hardware for safely encrypting, securing, managing and growing your crypto assets. The NanoX is finished in matte black and decorated with both Ledger and Hublot logos.
These will be delivered in a special presentation box made of a transparent smoked black sapphire chosen to illustrate the transparency and security of block-chain and decentralised currency. The case also makes an ironic reference to the solid, once impervious nature of traditional vaults and safes, which serve no function when it comes to digital assets.
The open-working of the Big Bang Unico Ledger’s skeletonised dial showcases the watch’s elegant mechanical workings.
