As the lunar year begins, Hublot introduces a 200-piece version of its barrel-shaped icon in Frosted Carbon and gold, a first for the Swiss fine watchmaker
Today is the first day of the new lunar calendar and the beginning of the Year of the Tiger. Hublot marks the date with the Spirit of Big Bang Carbon Gold Tiger, a special watch that will be remembered for its technical and aesthetic originality long after the Year of the Tiger draws to a close.
The watch, which is based on the barrel-shaped 42mm Spirit of Big Bang, is a striking execution of Hublot’s famous fusion principles. This is the first Spirit of Big Bang with a case made of Frosted Carbon and 18-carat yellow-gold, a black and gold fusion of materials Hublot has used in its collection only once before.
This unique, complex, beautiful material, developed by Hublot, fuses carbon fibre with gold to create a unique finish defined by its glimmering gold occlusions. The watch is limited to 200 pieces and no two will be exactly the same. The patterns created by the process are random, just like a tiger’s majestic stripes.
