As one of the youngest luxury watchmakers, Hublot’s growth throughout the watches industry has seen it expand throughout the world of watches just in the blink of an eye. Their popularity is growing at a rapid pace, especially in Southeast Asia. This is exactly why Hublot pays tribute with five special edition watches for the region.
To celebrate the sophisticated watch collecting scene in Southeast Asia, Hublot released five South East Asia Edition watches. This collection including, three Big Bang references (44 mm, 41 mm and 38 mm), the Classic Fusion 45 mm Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic and the Spirit of Big Bang 42 mm.
There are two models of women’s collection and three models in men’s collection. But, the difference between the regular models and the South East Asia Special Editions is more noticeable in the men’s collection that includes the Big Bang Chronograph, Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph and the Spirit of Big Bang. Those three come in black and gold which channel the warmth of Southeast Asian climate.
But, this collection also honours the original Hublot watches from the 80s with gold cases on rubbers strap.
The Big Bang Chronograph stands out amongst the men’s collection. This special model comes with a frosted carbon fibre case and bezel to the Big Bang Chronograph that brings rough, industrial look. This will boast exceptional lightness and durability to the watch because carbon fibre it’s virtually scratch-proof and stronger than steel.
Satin-finished 3N Gold-plated appliques, hands, and indexes with white luminescent are contrasting against the blacked-out aesthetic of the case and carbon fibre dial. The robust appeal of this watch is completed with a black rubber strap, micro-blasted black ceramic and black PVD stainless steel deployant buckle clasp.
The sporty look lends on the dial of this watch with a tri-compax dial arrangement. There’s a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, a 12-hour counter at 6 o’clock and running seconds at the 9 o’clock position. This watch is powered by the self-winding Hublot HUB4104 calibre, a 252-part movement with 27 jewels, a frequency of 4 Hz and a power reserve of 42 hours. The water resistance of this watch is 10 ATM (100 meters).
Material innovation, bold watchmaking design, and complicated watchmaking are what you can get from this collection. This just sums up everything Hublot is renowned for. This emblematic collection is a high level of appreciation from Hublot for their Southeast Asia region customers, which pays tribute to advanced watch collecting culture.
