HUBLOT officially launches the special edition Big Bang timepiece created in collaboration with Italian creative lifestyle brand Italia Independent

On 28th Oct 15, Swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot officially launched the Big Bang UNICO Italia Independent, designed in collaboration with the Italian creative lifestyle brand. The new addition to the iconic Big Bang collection is a true representation of Hublot’s “Art of Fusion” philosophy, combining creative lifestyle and innovative technology.
Hublot General Manger of Greater China Loic Biver and Chairman and Co-founder of Italia Independent, Lapo Elkann, were present for this monumental watch launch which underlined five key themes, PASSION, INSPIRATION, CREATIVITY, INNOVATION, BIG BANG MOMENT, in the interpretation of the “Art of Fusion”. In 2007, Lapo Elkann, a creative entrepreneur, designer and style icon, established Italia Independent through his unique taste in fashion and business entrepreneurship.
The Big Bang Unico Italia Independent, designed and created by both brands, boasts Hublot’s manufacture UNICO movement and features a brand new material, Texalium®, whose design is exclusive to Hublot. The colours achieved by the Texalium® have a remarkable brilliance which are flawlessly matched by the titanium studded, denim strap. This new Big Bang Unico Italia Independent is available in two colors – grey or blue – and is guaranteed to electrify the wrist of anyone wearing it. The strap also benefits from the interchangeable "One Click" system, which enables its wearers to choose from a wide range of straps according to their preference. 500 limited edition pieces of both versions will be produced.
Each watch will also come complete with a pair of matching Italia Independent sunglasses for the Big Bang Unico Italia Independent customers, designed with a frame also made from Texalium®.
