HOT explores Hublot‘s Big Bang One Click Cuddly Cuff Collection with a new interchangeable strap… well… we think it’s time to get your wrist dressed!
Big Bang One Click Cuddly Cuff Collection
We all know about the penchant of Hublot, the avant-garde watchmaker to experiment with materials and techniques as much as with technology when it comes to watches. This time round, they have really outdone themselves. With summer approaching they’ve got in colour and bespoke style…all in one strap!
The Big Bang collection is iconic and it’s been a decade since its inception. The collection has adapted to a huge variety of expressions such as jeans mode, linen, embroidery or Pop art. This time round, it is one more iconic twist… the interchangeable ‘One Click’ straps are dressed up with a leather strap enhanced with the softness and exceptional nature of Orylag.
The watch in question is the new women’s Big Bang, which made a debut in 2016. With a 39-mm case in King Gold or steel, the proportions of this watch are perfect for the fashion-loving woman. There are numerous combinations and permutations possible- with bezel and/or case paved with diamonds, black or white dial, and of course the patented ‘One Click’ attachment system, allowing the strap to be changed quickly and more easily. Many visions and infinite possibilities of variations…
The strap that accompanies the watch is a bespoke fashion piece imbued with creativity and innovation. Hublot dresses wrists with audacity no doubt! The strap is lined with Orylag rabbit down. Orylag is an exceptional artisanal material made in France, a result of research by INRA (National Institute of Agricultural Research). It is a down composed of extremely fine hair of unequalled softness. A rare and precious material, it is respectful of the animals and whose natural tanning preserves the environment.
The look of the iconic watch then is something that makes a strong and powerful statement- an oversize strap, an asserted silhouette and a stylised look that can be expressed in natural or tinted shades. Thanks to the expertise of an artisan fur specialist, the down has been worked so as to offer a gradation of colours. Mottled grey, electric turquoise and fuchsia dress the fur and the stitching of the strap. The Cuddly Cuff straps, like jewellery, are just asking to be worn on the wrist!
Clearly, the Big Bang One Click Cuddly Cuff Collection is the new “It watch”!
