Hublot introduces the Spirit of Big Bang Titanium Dragon #YearoftheDragon
By SENATUS Magazine | 9 January 2024

Introducing Hublot's Spirit of Big Bang Titanium Dragon. Inspired by the traditional Chinese art of paper cutting, this timepiece intricately layers its hands, wheels, and H-shaped screws to create a captivating 3D representation of an eastern dragon.

Hublot has enlisted Chinese artist Chen Fenwan to combine traditional Chinese “sculpture in the round” with contemporary art. In a 42 mm titanium case, Hublot transposes the layered effects of paper cutting into a multi-level dial construction overlaying a base panel with several levels of appliqués that incirporate the aesthetic codes of Hublot’s components.

The dragon’s silhouette extends onto the rubber strap, which features a rubber marquetry motif. Each of the dragon’s scales is coloured and nano-vulcanised to be integrated into the strap. This delicate decorative operation is carried out entirely by hand and takes around 8 hours per strap.

The Spirit of Big Bang Titanium Dragon, offered in a limited edition of 88 pieces, comes with a second, titanium-grey Velcro fabric strap. Tthis Chinese New Year celebration features an HUB1710 automatic movement and power reserve of 50 hours.
