October 28th, 2021, San Francisco: San Francisco, a city of rich history, art, architecture and gastronomy is also the gateway to the world’s greatest technology hub and it is this fusion of design, craftmanship and innovation that aligns and inspires the latest release by luxury Swiss watchmaker Hublot: The Big Bang Unico San Francisco Boutique Limited Edition 45mm.
Inspired by the sweeping arches of the Golden Gate Bridge, the piece pops with the signature orange bezel that signals home to San Franciscans the world over. Time and tribute further combine with the silhouette of the bridge overlayed at 9 o’clock. In a limited release of only twenty pieces, the timepiece is powered with Hublot’s in house Unico movement, and this 45mm skeleton piece offers the flexibility of two interchangeable straps – black rubber and orange Velcro – for whatever adventures the boundless city has in store.
To herald the new timepiece, Hublot celebrated the city in partnership with local creative Justin Walter, showcasing the timepiece in a photographic series of landmark locations. Because no day by the bay is complete without a world class cocktail hour, Hublot celebrated the launch with an instore event at the Hublot San Francisco boutique where VIP guests were given first access to the highly limited release.
Big Bang Unico San Francisco Boutique 45mm Limited Edition is available exclusively at Hublot San Francisco boutique and available on eCommerce, priced at $22,500 USD. For enquiries, visit or phone:
Hublot San Francisco Boutique: 174 Geary Street, San Francisco. Ph: 415 981 2200.
Founded in Switzerland in 1980, HUBLOT is defined by its innovation, which began with the highly original combination of gold and rubber. This “Art of Fusion” stems from the imagination of its visionary Chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, and has been driven forward by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe since 2012.
The release of the iconic, multi-award-winning Big Bang in 2005 paved the way for new flagship collections (Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang), with complications ranging from the simple to the highly sophisticated, establishing the extraordinary DNA of the Swiss watchmaking house and ensuring its impressive growth.
Keen to preserve its traditional and cutting-edge expertise, and guided by its philosophy to “Be First, Different and Unique”, the Swiss watchmaker is consistently ahead of the curve, through its innovations in materials (scratch-resistant Magic Gold, ceramics in vibrant colours, sapphire), and the creation of Manufacture movements (Unico, Meca-10, Tourbillon).
HUBLOT is fully committed to creating a Haute Horlogerie brand with a visionary future: a future which is fused with the key events of our times (FIFA World CupTM, UEFA Champions League, UEFA EUROTM) and the finest ambassadors our era has to offer (Chiara Ferragni, Pelé, Kylian Mbappé, Usain Bolt, Novak Djokovic).
