Hublot Big Bang "Calaveras"

On the occasion of Mexican festival of "El Día de los Muertos", Hublot is paying tribute to the celebration of life by creating a limited edition Big Bang Calaveras in 3 versions, with just 30 ceramic models, 20 steel models, and 10 red gold models being released. Embodying the positive attitude of the brand, the skull designed by Hublot is adorned with floral and carved motifs, engraved into the material like embroidery.
The popularity of the skull motif, celebrated in contemporary art, design, and fashion, extends beyond the realm of rockers and bad boys it bears a positive message of hope stands for change, rebirth, and life in all its guises.

As the 10th annual SIAR Mexico opens its doors, Hublot is paying tribute to one of the most popular holidays in Mexico, "El Día de los Muertos", which translates to Day of the Dead. This holiday is a celebration recognised as part of world cultural heritage (UNESCO) since 2008.
A tradition which focuses on gatherings of families and friends to pray for and remember people who have died and help support their spiritual journey. This celebration may seem morbid but is in actual fact, a true celebration of life. An Aztec tradition, dating back more than three centuries, later influenced by both Spanish and Christian customs.
A vibrant, joyful, and colourful celebration which, on the BIG BANG, takes the form of a "calavera" (the symbolic skull), the spirit of which imbues the watch from its dial to engraved bezel, all the way through to its stamped bracelet.
