Following special editions of Dr. Martens’ 1460 and New Era’s caps, Yohji Yamamoto has partnered with a surprising new parther: Hublot. The LVMH-owned luxury watchmaker enlisted the legendary Japanese creative to elevate its signature Big Bang model, yielding an appropriately blacked-out watch.

Yamamoto’s bespoke Big Bang GMT All Black is as understated as the name implies, with everything from the hands to the case to the strap executed in Yamamoto’s preferred shade. A transparent face reveals the matching complication inside, with Yamamoto’s script logo emblazoned beneath Hublot’s branding on the smoked sapphire crystal. limited to a mere 50 pieces, the watch’s GMT feature allows for dual display of two different time zones, with a proprietary module that allows the time zone to be updated with simple push button activation.

“We are honored to celebrate the opening of our new flagship boutique in Tokyo with fashion designer super star Yohji Yamamoto,” said Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe in a statement. “This All Black limited edition we created together expresses a simple beauty through the fusion of Yohji Yamamoto’s black design signature and the complicated GMT manufacture movement.”

“This watch can easily display the time zones of the two cities where I’m based, Tokyo and Paris,” Yamamoto continued. “Moreover, the hours are invisible. As a person who isn’t always forthcoming, I find that highly amusing. I’m pleased to have taken part in the creation of this model to celebrate the opening of Hublot Boutique in Ginza, a unique, famous and iconic neighborhood of Japan.”

Hublot’s new Ginza boutique on Chuo-dori Street will exclusively offer Yamamoto’s bespoke Big Bang timepiece when it opens in May. Though the price wasn’t confirmed, it’s likely to be five figures, in line with most other Big Bang watches.

Recently, HYPEBEAST took a detailed look at Hublot’s latest Novelties collection, which serves up plenty of stylized Big Bang models.
