There are three core elements in the Big Bang Unico Ledger package: the watch, a limited-edition Ledger Nano X crypto wallet, and a special sapphire watch box.
The watch is based on the Big Bang, which has a 42mm black ceramic case and a skeletonized automatic chronograph in-house movement. Most striking is the watch’s high-contrast golden bezel, cast in solid “Electrum,” a natural gold and silver alloy that was used by Lydian and Greek societies in around 625-600 BC to mint the earliest known coins. For the watch, Hublot’s R&D Department developed a special stainless version of the alloy containing a 50/50 gold-silver mix. The Bitcoin Latin motto “Vires in Numeris,” or strength in numbers, is stamped six times into the bezel’s outer edge. Together, these themes capture the spirit of the world’s oldest and newest currencies. The case back is engraved with the Ledger logo and the 50-piece limited-edition number.
Packaged with the watch is the Ledger & Hublot Nano X, a limited-edition crypto key that will only be available with the watch. The Nano X is Ledger’s signature digital asset wallet, a market-leading Bluetooth-enabled piece of hardware for safely encrypting, securing, managing and growing your crypto assets. The Nano X is finished in matte black and decorated with both Ledger and Hublot logos.
These will be delivered in a special presentation box made of a transparent smoked black sapphire chosen to illustrate the transparency and security of blockchain and decentralized currency. The case also makes an ironic reference to the solid, once impervious nature of traditional vaults and safes, which serve no function when it comes to digital assets.
The Hublot Big Bang Unico Ledger will go down in history as the game-changer – the first wristwatch to fuse fine watchmaking and high-end crypto technology perfectly together. First, unique, different. Hublot loves crypto!
