Swiss entity, Hublot, is known for its robust history of finely crafted timepieces, but little assumed the worlds of watches and coffee would collide. Now, Hublot has team up with another Swiss name, Nespresso, for a collaborative Big Bang Unico timepiece.
Taking an entire year to craft including research and development stages, the 42mm watch appears in a vibrant green hue with a satin and polished finish. But what makes the watch particularly interesting is its recycled coffee grounds and aluminum Nespresso capsule composition. For an enhanced environmentally equitable construction, the watch also features eco-titanium, a recycled aluminum cap and a recycled velcro strap.
“The Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin is a watch born out of a close collaboration between the product development teams of Nespresso and Hublot, two pioneering Swiss brands, both of whom were founded in the 1980s,” said Hublot’s CEO, Richard Guadalupe. “It took the R&D teams a whole year to achieve the uniformity of color of the watch’s seven different materials, find the right balance of ingredients and perform the quality and durability.”
Take a look at the novelty piece in the gallery above. Priced at $24,100 USD, the Hublot x Nespresso Big Bang Unico Origin is available now online.
