Samuel Ross has been theReplica Replica Hublot brand ambassador since 2020. Now, he has introduced a unique graphic language into the new limited edition Big Bang Tourbillon watch.
In the past 40 years, Replica Hublot has achieved rapid development in the field of innovative watchmaking, in part because of its constant focus on the “art of fusion”. By combining disparate materials, the brand has rewritten the rules of watchmaking, constantly pushing the boundaries of technology and aesthetics.
A year after winning the prestigious Replica Hublot Design Award, Samuel Rose was officially announced as a brand ambassador in 2020. He condensed the 40-year history of Hublot into a minimalist abstract sculpture, namely “REFORM”.
The 40 cm tall work of art is now reinterpreted in the 45 mm diameter Big Bang Tourbillon watch, the first collaboration between Samuel Rose and Hublot. Samuel Rose’s signature use of colour, along with his love of stark geometry and urban design, goes hand in hand with the innovation and sophistication embodied in his own and even Hublot’s work.
From the case to the dial, from the case back to the strap, the titanium honeycomb mesh showcases the distinctive hexagonal design of the Big Bang collection. The hexagon is a fundamental part of nature and a strong and efficient shape that can expand without gaps and overlaps. Here, it becomes a visual symbol of the watch’s function – a thread at the heart of all of Samuel Rose’s designs.
The Big Bang Tourbillon Limited Edition is a sculptural piece to wear, yet robust and ergonomic, with a lightweight skeletonized titanium construction and stretchable rubber strap for extra comfort on the wrist. As a proponent of color theory, Samuel Rose chose to use orange, a symbol of vitality and optimism, to decorate the crown, strap and tourbillon bridge, as well as the side guards, and the simplicity of the brushed case and bezel Grey contrasts sharply.
This watch is equipped with the HUB6035 self-winding movement, which vibrates at 21,600 vibrations per hour (3 Hz), is equipped with a micro-rotor, and can provide up to 72 hours of power reserve. Hublot’s new Big Bang Tourbillon tourbillon wrist The watch is limited to 50 pieces, each of which is a well-deserved work of art, opening up new horizons and adding a new visual language for the watchmaking industry. It is reported that the price of the watch is 110,000 Swiss francs, which is equivalent to about 750,000 yuan.
