GET READY FOR HUBLOT’S BIG BANG LAUNCH IN THE FIELD OF BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY
Updated: Nov 26, 2019
HUBLOT has always pushed the boundaries of traditional watchmaking industry. Was it when it created the evolutionary and iconic Big Bang timepiece, when it conjured the world’s first and only 18K scratch-resistant gold alloy called Magic Gold, when it showcased the first vibrant coloured ceramic Red Magic, and when it became the first luxury brand to enter the football world more than 10 years ago.
With innovativeness etched in its DNA and always striving to be first, different, and unique, HUBLOT has introduced their latest product called the Big Bang Blockchain in commemoration with the tenth anniversary for the BTC cryptocurrency.
This new watch is a 210-piece limited edition watch that can only be purchased with bitcoin, and a watch that can be bought directly from the watchmaker with bitcoins. Paying homage to both the iconic Big Bang series and Blockchain technology, the watch will feature Big Bang’s signature industrial design as well as elements taken from bitcoin. And of course, 210 is not just a random number. Precious and rare like bitcoin, the most iconic digital assets of all, this Big Bang watch is created to commemorate the 10th anniversary of this epochal invention, and the fact that only 21 million bitcoins will ever exist. Each timepiece will have a unique certificate engrave on the watch case, which represents the identification number of the transaction.
OSL, the sole Official Broker of the Big Bang limited edition promises customers a safe and secure shopping experience when purchasing the timepiece with cryptocurrency. The timepiece released for pre-sale on 19th September 2018, allows buyer the opportunity to register on the dedicated website https://www.hublot.com/blockchain-presale/. The data will then be processed by OSL, who will send a confirmation email and agreement indicating the strike date and payment details, before Hublot delivers the watch to the buyer in the beginning of 2019. A token for contributor of the digital asset community, a fusion between top-notch Swiss watchmaking and cutting-edge FinTech, this Big Bang limited edition is a solid representation of “Art of Fusion”.
