For the next grand opening of its new flagship boutique in Ginza, Tokyo, Hublot has collaborated with the renowned designer Yohji Yamamoto to release a limited edition of its Big Bang GMT All Black.

The world-famous fashion designer and master tailor Yohji Yamamoto, known for his avant-garde tailoring featuring Japanese design aesthetics and for having created “the Shock of Black”, which shattered preconceptions of traditional tailoring, collaborated with Hublot to develop this exclusive timepiece. Born from duality, the timepiece displays two different time zones through its GMT feature. At the heart of the timepiece, the Hublot Unico manufacture movement HUB1251 is equipped with a patented proprietary module which enables the second time zone to be updated instantly by a push-button, allowing the local time to be read easily via the conventional main hand of the watch. The time at home is indicated using a second arrow-shaped hour hand, which integrates a day/night indicator and is set using the crown.

True to the All Black concept, tone on tone, the signature of Yohji Yamamoto can be discovered at six o’clock. In 2006, with its All Black collection, Hublot launched a brand-new and pioneering concept: “Invisible visibility”. The all-black design of this new limited edition expresses a philosophy symbolizing the very essence of the brand. Literally, the model is completely black; it has a black case made of micro-blasted black ceramic, black hands, a black dial, and a black rubber strap. Even the sapphire crystal is made of smoked sapphire. Limited to 50 pieces, the Big Bang GMT All Black Yohji Yamamoto will exclusively be available at the Hublot Boutique Ginza.
