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 the swiss company Bischoff, the leader in this field.
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. Each version is produced in a limited edition of 200 pieces.
