In collaboration with award-winning artist and designer Samuel Ross, Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot presents the new Big Bang Tourbillon SR_A limited edition.
The collaboration between Hublot and Samuel Ross began in 2020. To mark the partnership, Ross created a sculpture encapsulating materials in aerodynamic, simple and striking shapes incorporating imprints of Nature’s sacred geometry to tell 40 years of Hublot history. In 2022, Hublot launched the Big Bang Tourbillon Samuel Ross watch as a part of this association.
The Big Bang Tourbillon SR_A by Samuel Ross is the latest addition to this artistic collaboration. The watch boasts a gray monochrome outfit to be worn on of the three rubber straps ranging from vivid green to black or white.
To assert its industrial look, Ross has opted to attire all the watch case components in shiny micro-blasted titanium, extending this to the clasp which also features a rough laser engraving of the Hublot logo.
To enhance the overall gray monochrome look, the crown is overmolded in gray rubber, while the tourbillon bridge now appears in a neutral shade enabling the watch to be easily paired with one of the three smooth full rubber straps in black, white or the pop vibes of vivid green.
With the hexagonal honeycomb shape and its perfect six equal sides, Ross has chosen the dominant governing pattern in the natural world recalling the functionality of a watch. Exactly like every single object he has designed, the watch is conceived as a durable, ergonomic and incredibly lightweight object.
Transposing this sacred geometry of Nature into the watch, Ross envisioned titanium plates to be polished, brushed, hammered and perforated in order to create a lean and imposing silhouette inducing a sense of motion.
The Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon SR_A by Samuel Ross houses the 282-component Manufacture HUB6035 caliber. Beating at 3 Hz, this movement provides 72-hour power reserve.
Just as the first release, this new iteration is available in a 50-piece limited edition.
