The metaphor of “the art of fusion.”
This watch is designed to celebrate the arrival of the Year of the Dragon and is a metaphor for the “art of fusion” contained in the Eastern dragon. The shape of the dragon, a sacred creature, has evolved over thousands of years and has the characteristics of nine different animals – shrimp eyes, antlers, an ox’s mouth, a dog’s nose, a catfish’s whiskers, a lion’s mane, a snake’s tail, fish scales, and an eagle’s claws. Chen Fenwan used his ingenuity to present this sacred animal, talisman, and totem on the dial, paying tribute to one of China’s most culturally rich art forms – paper-cut art. Paper-cutting originated in China about two thousand years ago, appearing simultaneously as papermaking. It is a carrier for transmitting the creator’s moral principles, philosophical thoughts, and aesthetic concepts. Paper-cut works are often used to celebrate significant life events such as weddings and the birth of new babies. Paper-cut decorations that symbolize happiness and auspiciousness are also indispensable in Chinese New Year celebrations.
Hublot is the first to use a rubber strap inlaid with artistic elements to welcome 2024 with traditional Chinese elements.
Hublot invited Chinese artist Chen Fenwan to combine the traditional Chinese “round carving” technique with modern art to create a new timepiece that condenses the majestic and dynamic dragon shape on the wrist, conveying the feeling of rising into the sky. Auspicious atmosphere. This piece of art on the wrist symbolizes the endless totem of life and vividly demonstrates Hublot’s brand philosophy of “dare to be a pioneer, be unique, and be different.”
In a titanium case with a diameter of 42 mm, Hublot transforms the multi-layered effect of paper-cut art into a multi-layer dial structure, superimposes a multi-layer intarsia design on the bottom plate, and integrates components with Hublot aesthetics. The dragon-shaped outline extends to Hublot’s first rubber strap with inlaid artistic patterns. Each dragon scale is dyed and nano-vulcanized to blend seamlessly with the strap. This delicate decoration process is completed entirely by hand, and each strap takes approximately 8 hours to make. The Big Bang Soul Jiachen Dragon Year Titanium Watch is limited to 88 pieces and comes with a titanium gray Velcro nylon fabric spare strap.
