Hublot has once again collaborated with Parisian house of Berluti on a new interpretation of the Big Bang Unico watch. The partnership between the famous men’s fashion house and the most disruptive of the watch brands started in 2016, fusing the fashion and watchmaking.
The new Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio is an understated, elegant, monochrome and timeless piece, made for true collectors and connoisseurs. This edition will be limited to 100 pieces, as was the last Hublot and Berluti collaboration on a Big Bang Unico model.
This new Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio isn’t quite what people were expecting – so, of course, that’s why we made it! In an urban style, it reflects the smooth, satin tones of the concrete that adorns the greatest cities. Understated but technical, monochrome but packed with nuance, it explores some very minimalist creative ground that we are not used to travelling. A piece that many will find surprising!

The watch features an emblematic patinated Venezia leather at the heart of the polished titanium bezel as well as on the dial, where the indices and words “Swiss Made” 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, a feat of technical prowess.
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 and it is available in two versions: one in burnished Aluminio Venezia leather; another in patinated Aluminio Venezia leather with the Scritto motif, exclusively for Japan.
This Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio is a new expression of our collaboration with Hublot. Working in monochrome is a very demanding exercise in patina, finish and play of light to give the watch its volume. Once again, the combination of our emblematic Venezia leather and Hublot’s watchmaking expertise brings about a unique, subtle and contemporary result.
