Samuel Ross, the renowned multidisciplinary designer and founder of A-COLD-WALL*, has deepened his collaboration with Hublot. After being awarded the Hublot Design Prize in 2019 and becoming the brand's official ambassador in the following year, he's now unveiled his second collaborative piece, reimagining the Big Bang Tourbillon through his SR_A project.

Ross has brought his distinctive industrial design aesthetic to the project, aiming to create a wearable work of art. All of the watch's case components are adorned with micro-blasted titanium, including the clasp, which features a laser-engraved Hublot logo.

Continuing to embrace Hublot's Art of Fusion vision, Ross introduces contrasting materials to elevate the iconic silhouette. He focuses on the hammered and polished titanium construction to create a sense of motion and emphasize the watch's signature hexagonal honeycomb structure. The rubber strap, featuring perforated mesh to match the case, is presented in "Vivid Green" hues for a bold, sporty look, and it's available in black and white versions. The watch's 44mm case comprises 282 components, while the bezel boasts 26 jewels, making it an eye-catching and intricate design. Inside, you'll find the HUB6035 caliber, the brand's signature, operating at 3Hz and providing a 72-hour power reserve while ensuring water resistance up to 30 meters.

Commenting on this latest collaboration and the mission of his venture, Ross stated, "We are focused on crafting refined, minimal, and expressive timepieces. SR_A looks to expand, redefine, and establish timeless design icons, reflecting a spirit of innovation, optimism, and craftsmanship. I firmly believe we need all three qualities to usher in the next chapter of luxury."

The Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon SR_A by Samuel Ross is a limited edition of only 50 pieces and is available now. For more details, visit the brand's website.
