LONG LIVE FUN, VIBRANT COLORS. LONG LIVE POP ART AND LONG LIVE LIFE!
[dropcap size=small]S[/dropcap]wiss watchmaker Hublot took a fun and colorful departure form its traditional chronograph with the introduction and an ultra-feminine luxury watch series inspired by the famous Pop Art movement, which had its heyday in the 70’s American culture. Playful use of color. Flashy, joyful, upbeat. Everything was questioned. Dare… Reinterpret… Subvert… Andy Warhol and his famous portrait of Marilyn Monroe immediately spring to mind. How has it influenced the Big Bang?
Pink, blue, purple, apple green: an explosion of color in 4 watches, all 100% Pop Art reinterpretations. Seriously vibrant. And a first in the world of Haute Horlogerie.
Two models in gold and two in steel. These are playful watches, and yet their design is that of the iconic Big Bang 41 mm, 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 reminiscent of a painter’s palette. The ensemble is completed by a strap in colored alligator sewn onto tone-on-tone rubber for comfort and flexibility. Inside beats the HUB 4300 movement, a self-winding mechanical chronograph with a date window at 4 o’clock, which is sure to catch the eye of connoisseurs.
