The new Hublot Big Bang Unico Italia Independent replica watch already nicknamed ‘Camouflage’ presented at Baselworld 2016 breaks free in a camouflage version for the urban peace-lover. This new limited edition in partnership with Italia Independent, is the result of the continued collaboration between Hublot and Italia Independent per their 3-year agreement.
Italia Independent, a fashion ‘think tank’ launched in 2007 for the Pitti Uomo in Florence was founded by Giovanni Accongiagioco, Lapo Elkann and Andrea Tessitore. Its mission and philosophy, is to be a source of inspiration seeking the use of new materials in the fashion industry. This year the new and special Hublot Big Bang Unico Italia Independent replica watch brings a different pattern in its Carbon Texalium case rather similar to the previous version presented last year.
Just like last year, Hublot Big Bang Unico Italia Independent replica watch is introducing a limited edition collection of sunglasses to accompany the watches. The sunglasses are lightweight and resistant, underlining the know-how of the two companies. The glasses have a classic timeless shape that uses precious metals and are embellished with a detail in Texalium, the same material used in the watch collection. The logos of Italia Independent and Hublot can be found at the ends of the temples; the logo Hublot is also present on one of lenses that have high-quality protection and excellent filtering properties. The sunglasses are not individually sold and will only accompany the purchase of the timepieces.
Fusing carbon fiber and Texalium, the new Hublot Big Bang Unico Italia Independent ‘Camouflage’ replica watch, retains the strength and lightness of carbon whilst offering the infinite spectrum of colors and eye-catching metallic effects of Texalium. The most famous of all military motifs is printed on a veil of silk laid over the Texalium. Through the transparency, the pattern and texture of Texalium can be glimpsed. Texalium is a glass fiber fabric with an aluminum coating on its surface. The case on the new Hublot Big Bang Unico Italia Independent ‘Camouflage’ replica watch maintains the 45 mm size of its predecessor and is equipped with the ‘one click’ interchangeable bracelet system.
