2015 marks the 10th anniversary of Hublot launching their iconic Big Bang model. The nation of Singapore is celebrating its Golden Jubilee in 2015. To mark both occasions, Hublot and leading Singapore watch retailer The Hour Glass have come up with a limited edition timepiece to mark Singapore’s 50th Birthday. Introducing the Hublot Red Dot Bang.
The “Red Dot” Bang is a 44mm Big Bang and will be available in two variations: Hublonium and yellow gold. Hublonium is a unique metal alloy developed by Hublot combining magnesium and aluminium, making it remarkably light.
The watches have a skeletonized chronograph movement and are paired with an artistically aged leather strap on rubber. The mesh dial allows for the wearer to view the inner workings of the mechanical movement.
On both models the number 10 on the dial is coloured red. This is in reference to Singapore being referred to as a “Little Red Dot”. Singapore has shown over the past 50 years it is anything but a “little red dot”! Majulah Singapore!
The Hublot Red Dot Bang Hublonium is a limited edition of 50 pieces to celebrate Singapore’s 50th year of independence.
In addition the Hublot Red Dot Bang in yellow gold is a limited edition of 10 pieces.
On the back of both pieces is Big Bang- 10 Years in red, behind the sapphire crystal caseback and The Hour Glass Logo engraved on the case itself.
The Hublonium model will retail for $36,600 Singapore Dollars and the Yellow Gold model for $66,400 Singapore Dollars.
In addition to the two timepieces, Hublot will be opening a pop up store that will stand from the 16th – 26th August right in the heart of Orchard Road at the Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza. Inhabiting a space of at least 1,050 square metres and towering at 7-metres tall, this emporium will be Hublot’s largest venture globally. It will be open from 10am to 9pm on the above mentioned days.
