Morgan And Hublot Join Forces: Aero Bang Morgan Watch

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

aerobang2.jpgOn the anniversary of the first century of the Morgan automobile company, Hublot has produced a special Big Bang whose design has been inspired by the AeroMax car: the Aero Bang Morgan. Jean-Claude Biver presented it in Malvern (GB),at the jubilee firm’s headquarters, in the presence of Charles Morgan.

It was during an encounter between Charles Morgan – the legendary British maker of sports cars – and Jean-Claude Biver, the bubbling Swiss watchmaker, that the creative spark was generated. Being directors of companies attached to tradition and craftsmanship, and being both passionate about elegance and authenticity, they quite naturally decided to form a partnership.

The synergy between Hublot and Morgan is reflected in the same concern for meticulous work and sober, original aesthetics. This complicity is also found in the use and combination of materials, in the sporting vocation and in the craft-manufacturing of their products.

The AeroMax car – a limited series of 100 hand-made cars – has been the inspiration behind the creation of the Aero Bang watch, whose first hundred models have been reserved as a priority for owners of the AeroMax. The ceramic and tungsten Big Bang sports the Morgan logo at 9 o’clock, on a skeleton dial which makes it possible to distinguish the chronograph movement, or to admire the beauty of its “engine!”
