When you mix coffee with a watch you will get this Hublot Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin. It is the newest Big Bang crafted from recycled Nespresso capsules and coffee grounds, a collaboration with the Swiss coffee maker Nespresso.
Nespresso is always looking around to give their used coffee capsules a second life, and construct new products from their aluminium capsules. So a partnership with a watch brand doesn’t seem too far-fetched. Especially as Hublot is always looking for new materials to use on their watches. Think about this Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Special Edition Concrete Jungle for example, with concrete in it.
It took a year to finish the Hublot Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin and it is the first watch ever made with recycled aluminium coffee capsules. The aluminium is used for the case, bezel, crown and pushers. Even more, the coffee ground from the capsules is transferred into straps. That’s a pretty cool thing to know.
The Hublot Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin might be one of the most eco-friendly watches around
The 42.5-millimeter case is from green anodized recycled aluminium where 28% comes from the Nespresso coffee capsules. Like all other Unico’s the dial is open-worked with running seconds on a sub-dial at 9 o’clock. The sub-dial with a 60-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock also bears a small date window. The joint effort of Swiss brands is noticeable at the crown with an engraved Nespresso logo. The green color of the watch is a nod to the Master Origins Peru Organic capsule of Nespresso.
The bottom of the case and its container are from recycled titanium, the case back is transparent and shows the in-house caliber HUB1280. Which is an automatic with integrated column-wheel chronograph delivering a power reserve of 72 hours. The watch is numbered and limited to 200 pieces. Now let’s see if Mr. G. Clooney will leave his Seamaster Aqua Terra in a winder to wear this Hublot Big Bang Unico Nespresso Origin.
