In an interesting collaboration that merges elegance and sustainability, Hublot has partnered with Nespresso to introduce a limited-edition watch that embraces recycling and screams green in creativity.
This remarkable fusion of luxury and eco-consciousness is dubbed the Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin. It’s the first-of-its-kind Hublot timepiece made from recycled Nespresso aluminum capsules and real coffee grounds.
Nespresso has been promoting environmental responsibility through collaboration with esteemed Swiss brands to find ways of producing new products from its discarded aluminum capsules. The Hublot Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin exemplifies the remarkable outcome of this shared initiative in a showcase of vibrant green colorway utilizing recycled aluminum and coffee grounds for construction.
The captivating green colorway of this limited-edition watch is inspired by the Master Origins Peru Organic Nespresso pod. Nespresso’s branding presence on the watch is understated but its iconic N symbol serves enough to substantiate the brand’s impact on this Hublot. The watch displays how repurposing used materials can benefit the haute horology.
Coming to the watch, Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin has a 42mm case meticulously crafted from recycled aluminum. Almost 28 percent of which comes from Nespresso coffee capsules. Anodized in a striking green hue , the case, crown and pushers are satin finished and polished for a refined and luxurious appearance.
Hublot takes sustainability a step further by incorporating recycled titanium into the caseback and container housing of the watch movement. This material usage enhances the corrosion resistance and durability of the watch while also aligning it with the ethos of minimizing environmental impact.
Inside the eco-titanium housing of the Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin beats Hublot’s HUB1280 Unico automatic chronograph movement. This precision-engineered Hublot watch comes with choice of two straps, both crafted from recycled materials and attached to a click interchangeability system for easy swapping. One is a fabric strap made from 5 percent coffee grounds and 95 percent recycled polyester. The other one, a rubber strap is available in a combo of coffee grounds and recycled rubber.
As a testament to its exclusivity, only 200 pieces of the Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin will be produced each one will retail for EUR 25,200 (approximately $24,000).
