About the Hublot Big Bang Unico Ledger

The newly released timepiece comes in a package that consists of three elements; the beautifully crafted timepiece, the limited-edition Ledger Nano X crypto wallet and a special sapphire watch box.

The Watch

Like the collection it belongs to, the new piece is based on the Big Bang Unico design. The familiar case structure comes in a 42mm diameter, appealing to a wide range of wrist sizes. Set with black ceramic, the main highlight of the main case structure is the golden bezel made crafted from a unique alloy known as “Electrum”. What is Electrum? It is a natural gold and silver alloy in a 50/50 ratio used by Lydian societies in around 580-590 BC. It was used to mint the earliest known coins from around that time. Hublot’s R&D Department developed a special stainless version of the alloy containing a 50/50 gold-silver mix for the watch.

Another exciting aspect of the watch is the presence of the Bitcoin Latin motto “Vires in Numeri”, which translates to strength in numbers. This motto has been stamped across the bezel’s outer edge six times. These two features symbolise the spirit of the world’s oldest and newest currencies.

Sitting within the black ceramic case is Hublot’s in-house Unico manufacture movement that clocks in a power reserve of 72 hours. The case back is engraved with the Ledger logo and the 50-piece limited edition number.

The Crypto Wallet

Like we mentioned before, the whole package of the Hublot Big Bang Unico Ledger consists of the Ledger Nano X Crypto wallet. What is this? It is a limited-edition crypto key that will only be available with the watch. Ledger’s signature digital asset wallet comes in the shape of a market-leading Bluetooth-enabled matt black piece featuring both of the brand’s logos. This piece of hardware is used for safely encrypting, securing, managing and growing your crypto assets.

The Sapphire Box

The pieces mentioned above are delivered to the customer in a special presentation box made from transparent smoked black sapphire. This specific material symbolises the transparency and security of blockchain technology and decentralised currency.
