Coinciding with SIAR in Mexico City, Hublot presents the Big Bang One Click Calavera Catrina, a celebration of one of the country’s most popular holidays, El Día de los Muertos, with a vibrant and decorative skull on its dial.

The Big Bang One Click Calavera Catrina, launching at the 11th annual SIAR in Mexico is a tribute to life. Bringing to life the traditional face-paint of the ‘calaveras’ and the sophisticated make up worn by the ‘Catrinas’ (Elegant Skull) during the celebrations the timepieces showcased a lacquered dial in black or white, engraved with coloured lacquer. The colourful and elegant dresses are conveyed through the straps with stitched multi-coloured skulls and the bezel covered in a 42 sapphire rainbow.

There are three limited editions in total: a steel version featuring a white lacquered dial with a matching white leather and rubber strap (100x pieces), a ceramic version (100x pieces) and a King Gold version (50x pieces) both with matching black lacquer dials and black leather straps. The One Click interchangeable strap system allows the Big Bang One Click Calavera Catrina to be transformed instantly and worn with blue or pink leather straps. The timepiece features the HUB1710 self-winding mechanical movement with a 50-hour power reserve. The result is a sophisticated Hublot Sugar Skull tattooed onto the wrist.

Whether to pay tribute to “El Día de los Muertos” – an Aztec tradition dating back more than three centuries, and a celebration which has been recognised as part of world cultural heritage (UNESCO) since 2008 – or as a daily reminder to live fully, the Big Bang One Click Calavera Catrina tattoos the pulse of life to your wrist.
