Ehh? I’m kind of getting tired of the Big Bang. I saw it in the shop the other day and was unimpressed – it was kind of chintzy looking. This one looks cooler, but Hublot needs to stop flogging this or else we’ll all get tired.

UPDATE – This is by Hublot and Luna Rossa is some fancy sailing team, FYI.

This a new sponsoring agreement made with Luna Rossa (which belongs in majority to Prada) in order to make a special Big Bang, all in the materials used in the America’s Cup boat. Full ceramic, Kevlar, carbon, titanium and rubber. A total synergy between the boat and the watch plus a total synergy between the two brands. Which are both not only luxury brands, but work both with the “fusion “concept. In fact we could not have a better partner, 1000 watches will be made and will be sold all over the world including in some of the Prada’s flagship stores of Italy.A phenomenal event for Hublot and a great opportunity to join the America’s Cup!Deliveries will only start in November.The watch is a 44,5mm ceramic Big Bang (same case as All Black, but with a special carbon dial bearing the log of Luna Rossa).

  1. wtf? is luna rossa a watchmaker or what? I can’t make heads or tails of their website. cool sailing pics, but they seem to offer everything BUT watches/ / /

  2. Gotta say this after investigating this company price-reduction offer:

    helping Hurrican Katrina victims is a noble cause, but why does Luna Rossa see fit to align themselves with conservative hack/talk-show host GLENN BECK to facilitate this goal?

    Glenn Beck is a slimy fascist scumsucker. Two-legged vermin. It was this radio host who, last year or so, exclaimed on-air that he was “tired of hearing anything from the 9-11 victims’ families, I’m getting kind of sick of them, y’know what I mean?”

    A real prince of a guy. I think I am going to send this comment to Luna Rossa directly.

  3. FYI, I understand now about the Hublot company and the Luna Rossa sailing thing. Two different entities. Thanks for the added info

  4. Didn’t Glenn Beck murder his wife?

    Anyway, nice looking watch, what’s next ..bigbang in yellow..pink…crystal..think I will pass on this one.

  5. Yet another example of a tacky Hublot. This watchmaker proves that money doesn’t necessarily equal class
