Hublot - Big Bang Meca-10 P2P

Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 P2P

Hublot is celebrating ten years since the creation of Bitcoin by launching the Big Bang Meca-10 P2P limited edition watch, available for purchase exclusively online with Bitcoins.

Bitcoin was created ten years ago, in November 2008. This famous cryptocurrency, a virtual asset stored in digital form, was invented by Satoshi Nakamoto, a name used by the person - or persons - whose identity remains a mystery to this day. In any case, the peer to peer - P2P - payment system has attracted a large following of users and investors accepting payment for their transactions. 

A trailblazer in new technological and societal trends, Hublot has decided to mark the ten-year anniversary of Bitcoin by launching the first watch that can only be purchased using Bitcoin. It will be sold exclusively via e-commerce and can only be ordered and paid for online. Such innovation was made possible through a collaboration with OS Limited (OSL), Asia's leading digital asset brokerage. This makes Hublot the first big watchmaking brand to enter this sector.

The Big Bang Meca-10 P2P is a limited edition of 210 timepieces, a reference to the global limit of Bitcoins, which is fixed at 21 million. True to the innovative design expected from the Big Bang collection, the "P2P" watch has a 45mm case made from microblasted black ceramic. When we talk about ceramics in a Hublot watch, this does not mean clay-based pottery, but rather a high-tech material of zirconium dioxide pressed at a very high temperature. The Art of Fusion that is so dear to watchmakers and engineers at the Nyon manufacture.

It houses a HUB1201 manufacture calibre, a skeleton movement offering an exceptional 10-day power reserve. A number that was not chosen at random: Ten to mark the number of years the Bitcoin has existed. Each of the 210 pieces is unique: Manufactured for its wearer bearing the identification number of the transaction made via Bitcoin. Another reference to cryptocurrency can be found in the Blockchain inspired design - the interconnection network of computers on which virtual money works - on the blue calfskin leather strap which is lined with black rubber.

The brand

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.
