HUBLOT’S BIG BANG GOES POP

Plaza Watch International - - Display Case -

What to do when you have a hugely suc­cess­ful range like Hublot’s Big Bang Ladies’ Chrono­graph? Cre­ate an even big­ger state­ment by tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the bold non-con­for­mity of Andy Warhol’s Pop Art screen prints, that’s what. The ‘Big Bang Pop Art’ col­lec­tion rev­els in max­i­mal­ism with its 41mm case and ri­otous colour splashes that com­bine hot pink, cobalt blue, ap­ple green and pur­ple. Fea­tur­ing a bezel set with 48 baguette pre­cious stones: topazes for the blue, amethysts for the pur­ple, sap­phires for the pink and tsa­vorites for the green, and di­als with multi-coloured coun­ters it is rem­i­nis­cent of a painter's pal­ette. The vi­brant look is com­pleted by a strap in coloured al­li­ga­tor leather sewn onto rub­ber for com­fort and flex­i­bil­ity. Inside beats the HUB 4300 move­ment, a self-wind­ing me­chan­i­cal chrono­graph with a date win­dow at 4 o' clock. The Big Bang leads a trend for larger state­ment-piece ladies’ watches that revel in be­ing loud and proud. The King of 1970s New York, famed for his ap­pre­ci­a­tion of life on the wild side, would doubt­less ap­prove.
