Big Bang All Black Zermatt

A new Big Bang "All Black" model. Hublot explores the hidden face of Matterhorn
"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 Matterhorn is the iconic emblem of Switzerland, and brilliantly captures the contrasting faces of its identity. The mountain's faceted pyramidal form makes it instantly recognisable among the thousands of other Alpine peaks. It is one of the toughest climbs in the world, yet has become synonymous with Alpine family leisure pursuits. Immaculate white slopes gild the hulking mass of rock, born in the first convulsions of the Big Bang and standing defiant against the ravages of time. To celebrate it, we've created a limited edition loaded with ceramic, a truly extraordinary mineral material

Underpinned by Hublot's "invisible visibility" philosophy, only a Big Bang "All Black" could apply to the unfathomable personality of the Matterhorn. To pay tribute to this complexity, Hublot presents two versions of the Big Bang All Black Zermatt. The men's and women's models are different yet complementary. They represent the two sides of a single identity, a single horological vision, like two faces of the same mountain.

The 44 mm men's version is available in 100 individually numbered pieces. The microblasted black ceramic case houses the self-winding HUB4100 chronograph, which is visible through the sapphire case back. The Matterhorn's identity is captured on the dial side: the small seconds hand at 9 o'clock sits atop a relief rendering in immaculate white. The perfect symbol of passing time and absolute, unchanging eternity, soaring above the Matterhorn without ever altering it. A bold, striking contrast that draws the eye to the centre of the anthracite grey sunray dial. Faithful to the All Black aesthetic, the timepiece is dressed exclusively in black and grey tones: Anthracite applied indices, two broad hands imprinted with black luminescent material, black resin lugs and a black rubber strap with grey calf inserts and deployant buckle

The 41 mm women's version symbolises the opposite face, with the Matterhorn emblazoned at 3 o'clock. Available in just 50 individually numbered pieces, it is distinctive for its bezel set with 36 black diamonds. These also beautifully embody the All Black's characteristic duality, harnessing the customary snow-white sparkle of the diamond and translating it into the deepest black for this ultra-contrasted version. The model features a self-winding chronograph calibre with a 42-hour power reserve and a date window at 4:30.
