Sun, sea and sand, along with a magnificent vista that pulls at your heartstrings, making memories that will last a lifetime. Seal them with this magnificent 25-piece limited-edition Hublot timepiece symbolizing the watchmaker’s continuing collaboration with the Oetker Collection’s iconic Caribbean hotel Eden Rock-St, Barths, and you have a winner. In this edition of EE’s Weekly Watch, Priyanka Sippy features Hublot’s stunning limited-edition timepiece.
Hublot’s signature style, elegance and mechanical excellence come together once more with the Big Bang Unico 45mm Eden Rock – St Barths Limited Edition, a timepiece that evokes the feel of a sundowner enjoyed overlooking the sea at the celebrated Caribbean hotel from which the watch takes its name. Hublot’s partnership with Eden Rock – St Barths, has produced unique watches before, but this is the first time Hublot’s flagship Big Bang Unico 45mm has provided the template for the collaboration. The new 25-piece limited-edition has a gorgeous 45mm cerulean blue ceramic case inspired by the color of the sky, the ocean and elements of the hotel’s freshly reappointed interior.
The watch’s color palette includes light blue, white, red and teal accents, inspired by the white of the sand, the red of the hotel’s roofs and the natural coloration of the sea in the Baie de Saint Jean. The sapphire crystal case back is decorated with a specially created outline of the rock and the hotel seen from the shoreline, while the matching blue presentation box has a porthole containing a sample of the sand from the beach. Think of it as a truly unique souvenir.
Beyond these distinct details, the watch is powered by Hublot’s hugely accomplished Unico automatic mechanical chronograph movement, the Hublot HUB1242, with a power reserve of 72 hours. A choice of three straps, white rubber with blue stripes, blue rubber, and a white Velcro strap, make for an exciting variety. Initially the Big Bang Unico 45mm Eden Rock St Barths Limited Edition will only be available at the hotel. In time, it will also be available through the Hublot boutiques.
Making memories that last and watches that inspire this is haute horlogerie at its finest.
