HUBLOT Big Bang Broderie Sugar Skull

Turquoise, navy blue, pale pink, fuchsia, yellow, orange, violet… lit with Lurex threads, silver or gold, or taking its inspiration from the lines on the catwalks for the 2016 season, the skull motif, with 12 red spinels, and the arabesques on the strap create bold associations of colours. A remarkable exercise in style that is given its value by the power and the simplicity of its (41 MM) case adorned in black ceramic with a bezel enhanced by 36 red spinels, the purity of the steel enlivened by 36 pink sapphires or the cat's eye effect of the red gold highlighted by 36 blue sapphires. Echoing the bezel, the dial is graduated with 12 precious stones, red spinels for the ceramic, pink sapphires for the steel and blue sapphires for the red gold.

In defiance of the laws of finesse, the dial offers a particularly reduced working thickness so that the hands and the embroidered pattern do not touch. Based on carbon material, special layered sheets of carbon fibre, coated in a transparent resin, make it possible to compress the embroidery whilst magnifying the pattern and adding an illusion of depth. Enhanced by this optical effect, the dial holds the gaze making it one with the passage of time. A fusion of art and the mastery of a craft, beyond the technical feat, the creation is the result of a demanding process of development and a human adventure. A meeting between two worlds where a passion for excellence are on first-name terms with precision.
