Hot on the heels of Malaysia’s Independence Day celebrations on 31 August, Hublot, together with luxury watch boutique The Hour Glass, is launching the Hublot Big Bang Merdeka (meaning ‘independence’) – a limited edition model on the Hublot Big Bang to celebrate the nation’s 60 years of independence. With only 60 pieces available, and only in Malaysia, collectors will covet this timepiece that references the Malaysian flag with its 44-mm diameter blue ceramic case and alligator straps in a matching hue with gold stitching. The number 60 is visibly prominent on the sub-dial, while the date is displayed between the 4 and 5 o’clock position. Available at Hublot Boutique Suria KLCC and The Hour Glass boutiques nationwide.
A leader in customisable mid-luxury timepieces, Ball presents its next generation of watches with its new Fireman NightBreaker line. Mix and match to your preference from the many options available. From the look of the dial and its colour to the size of the numerals, and, of course, the strap, you are sure to find the perfect creation out the possible 126 combinations. The model also features the brand’s signature self-powered micro gas tubes as hour markers, which are further customisable for the first time with this collection, allowing you to choose from green, yellow or white gas colours – or all of them for a micro neon party in the dark!
