Yohji Yamamoto’s Camouflage Big Bang

The Japanese fashion icon brings his daring approach to Hublot.

Following his monochromatic collaboration with Hublot in the Big Bang GMT All Black, revered Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto returns, unveiling a second timepiece with the Swiss watchmaker.

The Big Bang Camo Yohji Yamamoto – as the name suggests – delivers a camouflage motif and pairs it with a 45mm case of microblasted matte black ceramic.  The sapphire dial features superimposed outlines echoing the artist’s motif and is paired with coordinating matte-finished numbers and hands alongside Yohji’s Yamamoto’s signature at the 6’oclock.

Elsewhere, the camo continues with a coordinating strap. Here, Hublot has cut assembled and fused together individual pieces of camo using a vulcanisation process to form the rubber strap – something never done in watchmaking. The second strap is a black fabric option.

“Like Hublot, Yohji Yamamoto is constantly questioning the traditional tenets of the world he takes on-fashion-in his own creations,” explains Hublot CEO, Ricard Guadalupe. “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.”

Keeping things ticking, a UNICO self-winding chronograph flyback movement (calibre HUB1242) powers the limited-edition Big Bang, boasting a 72-hour power reserve and 100-metres of water resistance.

The timepiece is limited to 200 pieces and is priced $31,900.
