Merdeka 60 Gifts: Hublot “Big Bang” Merdeka
Joining the 60th anniversary celebrations of Malaysia’s independence is the Hublot Big Bang “Merdeka”, with subtle and elegant design features that pay tribute to the occasion.
To quote Teh Soon Kheng, general manager of The Hour Glass, “The progress of a nation is about standing the test of time. There is no better way to celebrate it with a special timepiece that marks the occasion.”
This second Merdeka-themed watch we’re featuring is the Hublot Big Bang “Merdeka”. Made in collaboration with The Hour Glass, it has an innovative, 44 mm diameter blue ceramic case and gold-stitched blue alligator strap, the same blue hue found on our nation’s flag.
On the sub-dial, the number 60 is prominently visible in bright gold, referencing Malaysia’s 60th Merdeka celebration. There is a date display between the 4 and 5 o’clock position and of course, the sapphire case is scratch resistant.
Malaysia has really established solid credibility as a place for horology enthusiasts if two venerable Swiss watchmakers see value in creating timepieces exclusively to commemmorate the diamond jubilee of Malaysia’s independence.
“We are honored to celebrate such a significant milestone with Malaysia. With the use of our
latest innovative material – blue ceramic. The Hublot Big Bang “Merdeka” is a true
embodiment of the “Art of Fusion,” said Mr. Ricardo Guadalupe, the CEO of Hublot.
Malaysia is honored to celebrate with you too.
Limited to only 60 pieces and available exclusively in Malaysia, the Hublot Big Bang “Merdeka” timepiece is available at the Hublot Boutique Suria KLCC and The Hour Glass boutiques nationwide.
