The infinite possibilities of white breathe new life into Hublot Big Bang Unico Berluti White Grey Titanium.
Berluti, the prestigious French leather maker, never ceases to surpass itself in the creation of new colours and new patina techniques.
The Big Bang Unico timepiece, Hublot’s icon, is now available in a completely new shade of Berluti’s iconic white grey scritto Venezia leather, a noble yet bold design imagined by the most exclusive of luxury brands.
The Venezia leather for this Hublot watch model undergoes the same process as the leather used for Berluti shoes: patterning, cutting, assembly of the leather pieces, mounting on the watch, and glossy finishing. This is a complex and meticulous process, including the neutralization of the leather’s natural components.
The emblematic patinated scritto Venezia leather is at the heart of the polished titanium bezel as well as on the dial, where the indices are gauffered directly on the surface. The leather is held between two pieces of sapphire glass, whose cut reveals the gears of the Unico movement.
Working with Berluti, a technique was developed to encapsulate natural leather hues and crystallize them in time; in this way, their beauty is rendered in an authentic and unchanging manner. As for the strap, it symbolizes the perfect fusion of the two worlds in patinated white grey Venezia leather with the scritto motif, exclusively for Japan.
The luxurious watch is presented in a special case that includes a travel pouch with the Berluti emblem and a shoehorn key ring.
The king gold edition is limited to 30 pieces, while the titanium edition is limited to 100 pieces. Both models are precious Japan-exclusive limited editions.
The Big Bang Unico Berluti White Grey also reveals part of its beating heart. The gears of the Unico movement, an authentic manufacture self-winding Flyback chronograph with three full days of power reserve, can be admired thanks to the cut of the two pieces of sapphire glass that hold the leather on the dial-side.
