Kylian Mbappe rocks Hublot's new pink Big Bang watch
Swiss watch's perennial needle-shifters Hublot has stayed true to form with its latest release the Big Bang Millennial Pink - a piece that the watchmaker is calling gender neutral.
Worn above by French world cup winner, Kylian Mbappe, the limited edition Big Bang piece is not only unique because of its colour way, but because it was designed in collaboration with Garage Italia and it's notorious founder Lapo Elkann.
"This Big Bang Millennial Pink that we have created with Lapo Elkann from Garage Italia sits perfectly within our pioneering vision. Our expertise in materials technology has enabled us to create a unique colour for this watch, Millennial Pink, symbolic of the world available to us, in its constant state of flux" says Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.
Its 42mm case sets the tone: made from modern, lightweight aluminium, a unisex and monochrome material, anodized, satin-finished and through-tinted millennial pink. Its proportions ensure it sits perfectly on any wrist. Gender neutral.
This highly specific colour is obtained by anodization, a process which both protects and decorates a part, and which has the advantage of giving the case and its components the desired pastel shade combined with remarkable resistance to scratches and impacts.
The Unico chronograph manufacture movement, boasting a 72-hour power reserve, has a chronograph mechanism on the dial side and a column wheel.
The highly versatile Big Bang Millennial Pink is supplied with two straps - a rubber and a velcro and knitted PES fabric - that are interchangable due to Hublot's patented One-Click system.
The Big Bang Millennial Pink produced in collaboration with Garage Italia will only be available in a exclusive limited edition of 200 pieces.
