Hublot celebrates Lunar New Year 2022 with a special edition Spirit of Big Bang Carbon Gold Tiger.
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.
The watch is powered by the Hublot self-winding skeleton chronograph, reference HUB4700, a descendant of the historic high-frequency Swiss Made El Primero calibre, introduced in 1969. This contemporary, highly precise automatic movement features a number of technical innovations, including a low-friction silicon regulating organ.
The watch has a 50-hour power reserve and is water-resistant to 10 ATM (100 metres).
The Year of the Tiger story continues into the watch's straps. It comes on a black rubber strap, elegantly shaped to mimic a tiger’s stripes. It’s fastened by a black ceramic and black-plated titanium deployant buckle clasp. With the manufacture's patented One-Click System, the rubber strap can quickly be changed to the supplied yellow-gold-coloured, velcro-fastened fabric strap.
In keeping with Hublot's philosophy, the Spirit of Big Bang Carbon Gold Tiger is first, unique and different.
