Zermatt, in Southern Switzerland’s Valais canton, is renowned as a mountaineering and ski resort, lying at the base of the pyramid-shaped Matterhorn peak. It is after this town that two new watches from Hublot are named, which pay tribute to the majestic mountaintop. The Big Bang All Black Zermatt from Hublot has been unveiled in two variations - 44mm and 41mm timepiece. With it, the manufacturer has also announced Swiss downhill and slalom champions Corinne Suter and Tanguy Nef as the face of the watches.
According to Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO, Hublot, “We chose to dedicate two Big Bang All Blacks to the Matterhorn's famous North and East faces. These sporty, precious models are our first ever men's and women's duo. A unique creation that reaffirms the versatility of our All Black collection, based on our philosophy of invisible visibility. Scaling the peak of watchmaking capability both in creativity and technical excellence.”
The 41mm women's version, available in just 50 pieces, gets a set of 36 black diamonds for its bezel. The model features a self-winding chronograph calibre with a 42-hour power reserve and a date window at 4:30. The watch comes in a micro-blasted black ceramic, and powering the timepiece is Caliber Hublot HUB4300 self-winding movement, chronograph with a 4Hz frequency. Again, similar to the men’s model, the watch is finished in a black rubber and grey calf with grey stitching.
Faithful to the All Black aesthetic, both the timepiece is dressed exclusively in black and grey tones. There are also anthracite applied indices, two broad hands imprinted with black luminescent material, and black resin lugs.
