Pop Art: An artistic movement which had its heyday in the 70’s- American culture, playful use of colour, flashy, joyful and upbeat. Everything was questioned- Dare… Reinterpret… Subvert. Andy Warhol and his famous portrait of Marilyn Monroe immediately spring to mind.
With the pop-art culture in mind, it sets the stage for a limited edition collection of 200 pieces in four whimsical collections.
Pink, blue, purple, apple green: an explosion of colour in four watches, all 100% Pop Art reinterpretations. Seriously vibrant. And a first in the world of Haute Horlogerie.
Two models in gold and two in steel. These are playful watches and yet their design is that of the iconic Big Bang 41mm, featuring a bezel set with 48 baguette precious stones: topazes for the blue, amethysts for the purple, sapphires for the pink and tsavorites for the green and dials with multi-coloured counters reminiscent of a painter’s palette.
The ensemble is complete with a strap in coloured alligator sewn onto tone-on-tone rubber for comfort and flexibility. Inside beats the HUB 4300 movement, a self-winding mechanical chronograph with a date window at 4 o’clock which is sure to catch the eye of connoisseurs. Power reserve of over 40 hours.
Retailing for S$38,500 (steel case) and S$65,500 (yellow gold case) at The Hour Glass boutiques from April 2014.
Eyes popped and our hearts skipped a beat when we first laid eyes on the collection. A fresh take on Pop-Art interpretations. Hublot has done it again.
