Big Bang Broderie Sexy and glamourous, an ode to the ultimate in femininity
With the very principle so dear to the Swiss watchmaking brand, Hublot connects the past with the future, combining respect for Swiss tradition with 21st-century creativity and technology.
Irresistible fine embroidery – the most feminine of materials – worn directly against the skin it is synonymous with intimacy… Romantic and sexy, embroidery is the stuff of fantasies. As delicate as it is frivolous, it embodies a savoir-faire which masters the subtle art of discreet revelation. Hublot continues to revisit Arts and Crafts in its own distinctive way, here paying homage to the memory of our grandmothers’ needlework with this fine St. Gallen embroidery – an ancestral art which is 100% Swiss Made – created by Bischoff, the leading Maison Suisse. Bischoff is the leader in this field. This prestigious firm supplies the biggest names in Haute Couture and luxury lingerie.
The creative teams from both companies have come together to develop an exclusive pattern in order to create a fusion with the Big Bang’s iconic design. It shows a rebellious spirit, with its skull pattern on a dial studded with 11 diamonds, and soft arabesques on the bezel and strap – a technical feat which took several months of Research & Development. After the embroidered elements produced in St. Gallen were delivered to Hublot in the canton of Vaud, part of the solution was found and developed in the Jura: in a process akin to the manufacture of high-tech carbon fibre components, the elements embroidered on tulle are encased and moulded – like a stack of sheets – in carbon fibre to amplify the texture.
The process is new and exclusive. The components are then assembled in the Hublot manufacture in Nyon, the ladies’ timepiece being completed for connoisseurs with an HUB1110 automatic mechanical movement featuring 63 components and 21 jewels. 42-hour power reserve. The Big Bang Broderie, the ultra-feminine watch now featuring the most delicate details, is initially available in 3 versions: gold, silver or All Black, studded with black diamonds. A first in watchmaking and the start of a wonderful story by Hublot.
