“Having served as the Timekeeping Partner of January’s Crypto Finance Conference 2022 in St. Moritz, it brings me great pleasure to introduce today a watch that fuses together the many tantalizing possibilities that link high-end crypto and state-of-the-art mechanical watchmaking. I firmly believe this is the year when the watch industry will come to embrace crypto currency. That’s the statement Hublot CEO, Ricardo Guadelupe used to announce to the world that the avant-garde watchmaker was entering the world of Bitcoin and Ethereum, but despite the rapid rise of NFTs, Hublot is playing its cards pretty close to its chest. Instead of simply dropping a collectible JPEG or digital article, the brand has unveiled the new Hublot Big Bang Unico, which comes with a Ledger Nano X crypto wallet for you to store all your digital currency.

The Hublot Big Bang Unico Ledger will be a limited edition watch, with only 50 pieces being made. Aside from being a handsome Big Bang, the 42mm black ceramic watch with an Electrum bezel, the piece comes with a Ledger Nano X cryptocurrency hardware wallet. In essence, not only will this watch tell you the time, it is also capable of “safely encrypting, securing, managing and growing your crypto assets.” If that’s not enough to make this watch more valuable in your eyes, you might also consider that the case is made of an alloy of gold and silver that was used to mint coins some 2,500 years ago. This watch truly is a mix of what was valuable in the past and what is valuable in the future. The 50/50 blend results in a version of the metal that makes it stainless, so it will always look as good as the first day you bought it.
Inscribed with the Latin motto “Vires in Numeris,” meaning “strength in numbers,” the Hublot Big Bang Unico Ledger will hit your wallet with a big number to purchase it—$28,300. But for that price, your wallet will expand as you bring crypto currency into your portfolio, and safely secure it in a vault on your wrist.
