Big Bang "Monaco Yacht Club" limited edition
The flagship of the Monaco Yacht Club, the "Tuiga", is a legendary boat built in 1909 by William Fife. This "15-metre International Class", restored in 1993, was acquired in 1995 by the Monaco Yacht Club.
Inspired by the "Tuiga", Hublot has created a new Big Bang chronograph, the "Monaco Yacht Club", launched in 2005 and produced in a limited and numbered edition of 250 units.
Its black carbon face displays the red, white and gold flag of the Monaco Yacht Club, whilst the bottom of the case is engraved with an image of Tuiga in an exact replica of the coat of arms at the end of the boom of the Monegasque cutter. With its angular design, built of superimposed layers of different materials, the 44.5 mm diameter case of the "Monaco Yacht Club" Big Bang is fashioned from steel. A Kevlar insert provides an unusual side view that gives the impression that the watch is traversed by the legendary Hublot black natural rubber strap. The stamped carbon dial sets off the extra-wide crystal in a ceramic bezel with six screws in the form of an "H" and black composite resin lug disks. The crown and rectangular button heads have black natural rubber inserts.
