there are countless editions of the Hublot Big Bang to a point we have lost count of them since sometime last year – to us, it has become “another day, another Hublot Big Bang”, but the Hublot Big Bang Zegg & Cerlati Yellow Gold Edition managed to grab our attention – thanks to the 18K yellow gold 44mm case, and the yellow gold bezel, and the 18K yellow gold crown and push buttons, and well, basically, just about everything that can be or needs to be “gold-ified” to give the timepiece the outstanding alluring aesthetic, is given the gold treatment in either 18K gold or at least in gold hue, like the matching gold-colored tone-on-tone calf-skin strap and the tone-on-tone mirror-polished dial face. i guess at this point the story behind the partnership between Hublot and Monaco-based high-end jewelry boutique Zegg & Cerlati kind of fades to the background and literally, outshone by this attractive, luxury timepiece.
anyway, the yellow gold look is based on an idea dreamed up by Tina Zegg and Carlo Cerlati and sticking to the monochrome concept held so dearly by the luxe jewelry maker, who btw, is no stranger to collab works, having released special edition watches with a slew of luxury timepiece makers in the past. other details include HUB4100 mechanical automatic movement with chronograph and date, 42-hour power reserve, water resistance up to 10ATM or 100 meters, crystal sapphire with anti-reflective coating on both the interior and exterior, and of course, more gold treatment wherever possible – including the caseback and strap deployant buckle. described as “a fusion of fashion and Haute Horlogerie craftsmanship”, the Hublot Big Bang Zegg & Cerlati Yellow Gold exists as a limited edition watch with only 50 pieces created exclusively for Zegg & Cerlati boutiques, Place du Casino in Monte-Carlo, Ischgl in Austria and Samnaun in Switzerland.
