Since being founded by Carlo Crocco in 1980, Hublot’s unique and uninhibited approach to fine watch making has inspired several unexpected creations from the Swiss watchmakers, who in the past have featured unorthodox materials such as ceramics and denim; and this year – it’s embroidery.

During their showcase at Baselworld 2016 in Geneva, the craftsmen at Hublot revealed the latest installments to the company’s long-standing heritage of cutting-edge technology, intricate details and unanticipated materials with two new limited-series timepieces – the Big Bang Broderie Sugar Skull and the Big Bang Broderie.

Merging traditional craftsmanship with their inimitable sense of confident creativity for a timepiece that exudes haute couture-level technique, Hublot’s Big Bang series is strong and feminine, featuring a colourful skull motif and arabesques made with St. Gallen embroidery on a silk organza dial.

The polished black ceramic 41-mm case adds drama and contrast to the otherwise vibrant Lurex hues, while the in-house manufactured HUB1110 mechanical self-winding movement it houses guarantees this particular timepiece as the potential to truly last – 42-hour power reserve and all.
