Hublot’s love of style, elegance and mechanical invention is once again brought together in the form of the new Big Bang Unico Eden Rock St Barths watch (ref: 411.EX.5120.RX.ERS21). Named after a famous Caribbean hotel, this watch is reminiscent of a sunset overlooking the ocean, making it extra cool and summery.
Hublot and Eden Rock St Barths of the Oetker Collection have collaborated on special edition watches before, but this is the first time the Big Bang Unico 45mm flagship model is used as a template. Inspired by the colours of the sky and sea and elements of the hotel’s recently refurbished interior, the new timepiece features a 45mm sky blue ceramic case and is limited to 25 pieces.
The watch is decorated in light blue, white, red and turquoise, inspired by the white of the beach, the red of the roof of a hotel, and the natural tones of the sea of Baie de Saint Jean. The sapphire crystal caseback features specially drawn outlines of rocks and hotels seen from the coastline, while the blue case features a porthole that houses sand samples taken from a nearby beach.
In addition to the special details mentioned above, this watch is also equipped with a high-performance HUB1242 UNICO self-winding mechanical movement and comes with three straps: the first is a white rubber strap with blue stripes, the second is a Blue rubber strap, the third is a white Velcro strap.
The Hublot Big Bang Unico Eden Rock St Barths watch will be sold exclusively in the hotel first, and then spread to the brand boutique channel.
