This summer, neon colors will be difficult to resist. They are everywhere and are causing a stir. Shoes, tops, bags, sunglasses and bright accessories add a vibrant color pop and a ray of sunshine to your wardrobe.
The candy colors of Hublot’s new supercharged watch from its Big Bang collection is just perfect for these sunny days. What is its name? The “Big Bang Black Fluo”.
Available in four different versions – blue, yellow, pink and green – with a limited edition of 250 numbered pieces for each colour, the 41mm diameter Big Bang Black Fluo plays on the stark contrast between black and bright neon colours.
A precious piece, its black PVD steel case and black dial are set with 430 black diamonds weighing a total of 2.36 carats. The matching black bezel is also radiant, being set with 36 brilliant cut precious stones: blue sapphires, yellow sapphires, pink sapphires or tsavorites for the green version.
Housed inside is the HUB4300 automatic chronograph movement with date (window at 4:30). 278 components including 37 jewels. 28,800 Vib/h and a 42-hour power reserve.
The ensemble is teamed with a shiny black snakeskin strap sewn onto black rubber with tone-on-tone neon stitching in blue, yellow, pink or green, depending on the version. These watches are water-resistant to 100 metres, because, as the song goes: “Girls just wanna have fun!”
