Launched in combination with their statement of artist Shepard Fairey as a new brand ambassador, Hublot has created a limited edition of the hand-wound Meca-10 line that has been designed using input from Fairey. The latest in Hublot big bang geneve replica watch’s series of art-themed watches, Fairey, who founded OBEY clothes and whose artwork includes the creation of the iconic Barack Obama Hope poster, seems a natural fit for the brand’s focus on disruptive, avant-garde, and controversial musicians.
Restricted to 100 pieces in two different colours, the Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 Shepard Fairey LE is a bold and vibrant expression of Hublot big bang ferrari imitation watch’s recognizable shape, using a patterned Texalium and carbon fiber case, skeletonized dial, and a funky power reserve indicator, also Fairey’s own Star Gear emblem on the dial.
Outside of possibly the skeletonized dialup, which is certainly not unique to this Hublot big bang unico replica watches layout, these Shepard Fairey variations are distinguished by the rather comprehensive application of a floral flowery pattern in the Texalium upper section of the watch’s 45mm case. Texalium, for people who don’t recall the Big Bang Unico Italia Independent, is specialized aluminum-coated carbon fiber and it allows for the application of a vast array of colours and the creation of entirely customized imagery within the material. This is fundamentally ideal for a wristwatch that is motivated by the work of a visual artist and the Big Bang Meca-10 Shepard Fairey could be had in either blue or grey with additional red accents.
Both versions have Fairey’s star logo on the dial at three and are powered by Hublot Big Bang Replica watches’s hand-wound HUB 1201 movement. With a 10 day power reserve, this motion has time, sub seconds, and a distinctive cog wheel power book display at six o’clock which uses a framed reddish aperture to demonstrate the rest of the reserve (in days). Additionally, this Hublot has the brand’s”one click” strap changing system, which allows for simple and tool-less strap changes. As provided here, the two versions come onto a rubber and calf leather strap with an embossed design from the artist himself.
While not a version that speaks to my preferences, I can understand the allure for 200 well-heeled Fairey devotees and collectors. Not unlike past examples from Hublot’s”Hublot Loves Art” series, these models act as an extension of their appeal of this artist , introducing a highly niche Hublot big bang limited edition imitation watches to an engaged audience which can (presumably) be expected to comprehend the artist’s larger appeal and the character of collecting within that specific area. As a watch, the 28,300 Big Bang Meca-10 Shepard Fairey translates his artistic creation into a medium that stays collectible, while functioning as a wearable and everyday pleasurable product.
