Hublot presents limited edition Big Bang One Click Calavera Catrine

THE MOST important haute horlogerie event in Latin America premiered the Hublot Big Bang One Click Calavera Catrine – the classic watch reimagined. The Swiss luxury watchmaker presented three limited editions at SIAR 2018 in Mexico, paying tribute to the ancient Aztec tradition and the “elegant skull” of the 1900s illustrator La Calavera Catrina.

“El Día de los Muertos”, Day of the Dead, dates back more than three centuries, and since 2008, is recognised as part of UNESCO world cultural heritage. The decorative skulls, “calaveras”, and sophisticated “catrinas” makeup – used during the celebrations in Mexico – are now incorporated in the design of Hublot’s Big Bang One Click that features HUB1710 self-winding mechanical movement with a 50-hour power reserve.

In total, 250 pieces in three limited editions were launched: a steel version with a white lacquered dial and a matching white leather and rubber strap; a ceramic version; and a King Gold version both with matching black lacquer dials and black leather straps. The One Click interchangeable strap system allows the watch to be transformed instantly and worn with blue or pink leather straps. 

The sophisticated Calavera Catrina collection reflects the vibrant Mexican culture but also the timeless tradition: the Sugar Skull tattooed onto the wrist representing the pulse of life.
