Hublot and Berluti join forces once more. 4 years ago, the two companies had collaborated to bring excitement to those fond of luxury watches as well as collectors. Now they are back with a new high-end chronograph.

The craftsmanship of the two luxury entities takes shape in the new Big Bang Unico Cold Brown, an exclusive watch made with lavish materials. The quadrant and watchstrap are all made in Venezia leather capable of resisting 100 meters of depth. The Cold Brown denomination, in fact, depends exactly on the type of leather and its glacé effect.
The quadrant is covered by sapphire glass, while the bezel will be made of two parts: the first ceramic, the second in leather 1 millimeter thick, which the capable watchmakers have posed on top of the first one. Only 100 units of the Big Bang Unico will be sold, inside a special box made by Hublot and Berluti with keychain and travel pouch.
“The Big Bang chronograph’s strong, unmistakable and modern identity reflects the new Berluti’s universe and lifestyle. The patina is our trademark, usually present in our shoes and leather goods, but all that know-how can also be used for something totally different.
Bringing the Cold Brown patina – which was inspired by an archive patina and renewed through a glaçage process to obtain a rich, cutting edge colour – to the Big Bang Unico is an opportunity for Berluti’s craft to be discovered in a new context”, said Kris Van Assche, creative director of Berluti.
