At TimeZone, Mike Margolis quotes an email from Jean-Claude Biver. JC Biver is the man behind Hublot. He¬†seems to follow some other smart CEO’s from watch manufacturers, by posting and scanning on watch forums. Below his email, as quoted by Mike Margolis:

“This a new sponsoring agreement made with Luna Rossa (which belongs in majority to Prada) in order to make a special Big Bang, all in the materials used in the America‚Äôs Cup boat. Full ceramic, Kevlar, carbon, titanium and rubber. A total synergy between the boat and the watch plus a total synergy between the two brands. Which are both not only luxury brands, but work both with the ‚Äúfusion ‚Äúconcept. In fact we could not have a better partner, 1000 watches will be made and will be sold all over the world including in some of the Prada‚Äôs flagship stores of Italy.A phenomenal event for Hublot and a great opportunity to join the America‚Äôs Cup!Deliveries will only start in November.The watch is a 44,5mm ceramic Big Bang (same case as All Black, but with a special carbon dial bearing the log of Luna Rossa).

Luna Rossa is a very strong team and might very well win the Cup. So we are not only with the best luxury brand, but are also with a winning team.”

    Another LE Big Bang…..it is sometimes more special to have a non-LE then a LE!

    I still think that the watch has a design that is so close to AP’s Royal Oak offshore that you can hardly call it original.

  • a Limited Edition is nowadays the same as “how to milk the cow to the last drop”, just look around, all major top brands are bringing them out one after the other, with exeption maybe of PP an VC. i really start to hate LE’s !!! let this be a new hype: stop buying LE’s and the prices will drop like hell !!!
