At SIHH 2016, visitors will have the chance to see Hublot’s latest addition to its Big Bang family of timepieces. The Hublot Big Bang 41MM Broderie Sugar Skull is billed as a watch that blends confident femininity and innovation at its very peak. Borrowing an haute couture signature, embroidery (from Saint-Gall no less) takes center-stage on the watch.
The skull motif is embroidered in vibrant splashes of turquoise, navy blue, pale pink, fuchsia, yellow, orange and violet courtesy of the Lurex thread used (a synthetic thread on which is vaporized a metallic aluminium, silver, or gold layer). 11 red spinels compliment the dial’s embroidery while another 36 encircle the 41mm black ceramic case.
A new icon is born, at one with confident femininity and glamour.
