The Big Bang Unico Eden Rock St Barths combines Hublot’s flair for style, elegance, and mechanical innovation into a stylish timepiece that’s as cool and sun-drenched as the famous Caribbean hotel it’s named after. The Eden Rock-St Barths, operated by the Oetker Collection, has previously collaborated with Hublot on other timepieces; however, this is Hublot’s first time using the Big Bang Unico 45mm as a base.
The new line of 25-piece limited editions features a cerulean blue ceramic case inspired by the sky, ocean, and the recently renovated elements of the hotel’s interior. White corals and sand, red rooftops of St Jean Bay, and the ever-changing blue shades of the ocean inspire the watch’s color palette, which includes shades of light blue, white, red, accented with teal.
