At Hublot, the bracelet plays a major role in the look of a watch and is an essential design element, having perfect integration into the case and the high-tech materials used in the manufacture. Robust, light and comfortable black ceramic zirconium oxide is used to create the case and bracelet in a unique fusion of technology and style that remains the secret of Hublot and its pioneering spirit.

Swiss watchmaker Hublot are observing their ongoing “HUBLOT LOVES ART” campaign by partnering with road artists Hush and Tristan Eaton. Hush was tasked with designing “Fame,” in the Shape of the Hublot Spirit of Big Bang West Coast Ceramic Black and White. Though Hush is in fact established in London, he is known for his work with frescoes during Los Angeles, including regions of West Hollywood, Melrose, and Santa Monica. The Hublot Spirit of Big Bang West Coast Ceramic Black and White is Hush’s first collaboration piece with all the newest, designed about a monochromatic portrait of a posing woman who’s unnamed but for some reason reminds me strongly of Milla Jovovich’s character in Zoolander.Tristan Eaton includes a creative agency named Thunderdog Studios situated in New York, and many of his large scale murals are featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Accordingly, Eaton is representing America’s East Price with the Hublot Classic Fusion 45mm Chronograph East Coast Bronze, and in particular New York’s Financial District (linking into the “Fortune” theme). The bronze case is meant to signify the iconic Charging Bull sculpture on the green of Lower Manhattan. This is Eaton’s second collaboration slice with Hublot, having previously designed the timeless Fusion Aerofusion Concrete Jungle watch for its newest in 2016.
Each of the six references is equipped with a mechanical movement with an automatic self-winding frequency of 4 Hz, for an autonomy of 42 hours, with an oscillating weight in skeletonised tungsten visible through the screwed-down sapphire case back.
