Hublot Zermatt Unplugged on Hublot time
Hublot already partner of the Zermatt Tourism Office, recently opened a Chalet-Boutique at the foot of the Matterhorn, and is this year partner of the Zermatt Unplugged festival held from 4 to 8 April 2017 at the Swiss resort.
Hublot is committed to paying tribute to art in all its forms, including musical art. Zermatt Unplugged provide the Swiss watchmaking brand another opportunity to show this attachment to music. It is the Swiss festival which brings together various spheres of music at the same venue, all in the same uniquely Valais ambiance, in the middle of the Swiss mountains. A Swiss artist internationally renowned such as Stephan Eicher, international artists such as Paolo Nutini, Jess Glynne, Nelly Furtado, Michael Bolton and many others have performed on the festival stage, alongside new talents seeking recognition from the public and their peers.
Every day new talents have performed on the 14 stages set throughout the village and the skiing area, from midday to midnight. Zermatt Unplugged was clearly the ideal event to warm up after a good day's skiing in the Swiss Alps!
The Zermatt region is home to many tales and legends, and Hublot wanted to pay tribute to its mountains. The story of the Big Bang Zermatt is not lacking in these details. If there is one object that is inseparable from the mountain, it is rope. The soul of the Matterhorn shines at the heart of these two limited edition Big Bang Zermatt models. Above the HUB4100 movement and between two sapphire panes is a piece of the rope found on the North-East crest of the Matterhorn, enhanced with the inscription “ORIGINAL SEIL VOM MATTERHORN - 4320 HÖHENMETER”. The emblematic silhouette of the “Grand Pic” is engraved on a counter at 9 o’clock. Released in a run of 150 pieces in a tungsten case and 150 pieces in a red gold case, the Big Bang Zermatt has a ceramic bezel and sports a brown calfskin strap stitched in beige.
From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.Find out more
