Hublot launched a blackened Big Bang GMT for designer Yohji Yamamoto

Just like Hublot replica, which we saw in January, celebrated the opening of a new boutique by celebrating a special edition, the brand also opened a new flagship retail store in the famous Ginza retail area in Tokyo. The murder of Big Bang came true. GMT was designed for the legendary Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto. Big Bang GMT is one of the brand’s most popular collections because the Hubot watch in cooperation tends to favor the Big Bang spirit or many chronograph products, but because Yamamoto allocates time between his Tokyo and Paris offices, the watch The all-black aesthetic that can show that both time zones insist on being more or less his signature at the same time does have a lot of meaning.

Big Bang GMT is already made of titanium, carbon fiber and precious metals, so this is the first time it is made of ceramics-sandblasted, and the same is true, resulting in an ultra-matte, skeletonized appearance, just like in the cockpit It is better to be at home than on the wrist of an internationally renowned fashion designer. In addition to functional beauty, Big Bang GMT is one of Hublot ’s more unique watches. Its HUB1251 movement can display two time zones at the same time, allowing the wearer to jump the hour hand forward or backward for an hour. Engage the two buttons on the side of the case at three o’clock.

What is special about this movement is that it is essentially the internal HUB1242 Unico movement widely used by fake Hublot, in which the column wheel and chronograph functions have been removed and replaced with a proprietary GMT module to produce a quick adjustment function. Keep in mind that even if the quick adjustment utility is added, this is not “real” GMT, because neither time zone is displayed in a 24-hour format, which is why AM / PM has a framed reason indicator that occupies the hand heap The center of the dial to help keep things straight.

In general, Hublot tends to produce some very interesting collaboration models-Sang Bleu designed by Maxime Plescia-Buchi has always been a personal favorite, and the latest Classic Fusion of the late artist Carlos Cruz-Diez is definitely a knockout, so it is difficult to not Disappointed another all-black watch. Don’t get me wrong-micro-blasting (or any treatment other than polishing, in fact) ceramics are actually very complicated and are not in the steering rooms of many brands that make ceramic cases.

In addition, Yamamoto ’s widely acclaimed work in the fashion industry earned him more or less the title of design royal in Japan, and won international recognition for his work in designing products such as the team ’s invisible New Zealand all-black shirt. Because the team participated in the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Moreover, black is Yamamoto ’s main design language, so it ’s no surprise that collaborative price replica watches will also become popular – it ’s nice to see his style printed more on this particular reference book than just Is a signature. dial.
