For 50 years, Yohji Yamamoto has been offering a timeless style that transcends established notions using fabrics woven by artisans in Japan, and most in black. Like the monochrome featured on the Big Bang GMT All Black Yohji Yamamoto, Yohji Yamamoto’s iconic textiles and daring approach to motifs set the tone for the Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto.
A camouflage timepiece with a gritty vibe, as though deciphering a code that exists between paradox and homage.
“Like Hublot, Yohji Yamamoto is constantly questioning the traditional tenets of the world he takes on – fashion – in his own creations. The unique character of his creations, which use surprising materials not usually used in the world of fashion, make him a pioneer in the industry. This stance is not dissimilar to the philosophy behind the creation of our watches. The Big Bang that he has designed with Hublot echoes our shared codes and sports its camouflage motif in a truly original way through a set of outlines, superimposed on the sapphire dial, and vulcanised on the strap – a technology that Hublot introduced to the watchmaking sector for the first time in 2019.” Ricardo Guadalupe CEO of HUBLOT
The 45mm case of the Big Bang is styled using sapphire dial features superimposed outlines that form biomorphic patches in an echo of the artist’s camouflage motif, with his signature at 6 o’clock. A Unico movement in-house caliber HUB1242 which is a 4Hz automatic that has 330 total components, 38 jewels Bang that holds a power reserve of 72 hours. Hublot uses groundbreaking technology with the design and creation of the matching camouflage fabric strap. There is also a black fabric strap option that compliments well with the matte finished case. The chronograph is equipped with a column-wheel and a flyback function that allows you to restart the chronograph without stopping and resetting it.
“I am powerfully drawn to a cutting-edge approach, in the sense that it expresses a point of view that is slightly removed from traditional values. Each collection incorporates a message about what I am feeling right now. It is a way to invite people to question what is already there, which is something I value greatly.” Yohji Yamamoto, Fashion Designer.
