To explore the hidden face of the Matterhorn, Hublot unveils its first-ever duo of men’s and women’s watches with the Big Bang All Black Zermatt. Swiss downhill and slalom champions Corinne Suter and Tanguy Nef represent the two faces of the watch.
“We chose to dedicate two Big Bang All Blacks to the Matterhorn’s famous North and east
faces. These sporty, precious models are our first-ever men’s and women’s duo. A unique creation that reaffirms the versatility of our All-Black collection, based on our philosophy of invisible visibility. Scaling the peak of watchmaking capability both in creativity and technical excellence,” Ricardo Guadalupe.CEO, Hublot.
The all-new BigBang All Black Zermatt is inspired by the Matterhorn – a symbolic icon of Switzerland. The all-black watch honours the mountain’s faceted pyramid form. It also celebrates the immaculate white slopes covering the hulking mass of rock that has stood the time test of time.

About the watch:
The Big Bang All Black Zermatt comes in a duo of men’s and women’s models that are different but complementary. The 100-piece limited edition men’s version comes n a 44mm micro-blasted black ceramic case that houses the automatic HUB4100 chronograph movement. Faithful to the All Black aesthetic, the timepiece is dressed exclusively in black and grey tones: Anthracite applied indices, two broad hands imprinted with black luminescent material and black resin lugs. It features a small seconds hand at 9 o’clock that sits atop a relief rendering in immaculate white. The anthracite grey dial showcases the identity of the Matterhorn inspiration.
The women’s model comes in a smaller-ish 41mm, satin-finished black ceramic case with a distinctive bezel set with 36 black diamonds. The watch is home to a grey sunray, satin-brushed dial set with eight black diamonds and satin-finish black-plated appliques like the men’s version. As this version represents the opposite side of the Matterhorn, the dial houses the Matterhorn emblem at 3 o’clock. The presence of black diamonds across the watch is a gentle reminder to customers of the All Black’s characteristic duality, harnessing the customary snow-white sparkle of the diamond and translating it into the deepest black for this ultra- contrasted version. Limited to 50 individually numbered pieces, the watch is powered by an automatic chronograph HUB4300 movement that clocks in a power reserve of 42 hours and a date window at 4:30.
Priced at INR 13.71 lakh (approx.) for the men’s version and INR 17.60 lakh (approx.) for the women’s model, both Big Bang All Black Zermatt editions are available in a black rubber strap.
