You Can Now Tell The Time With Blockchain & Bitcoin
A luxury brand of watches in Switzerland has opened up its doors for pre-orders on its limited edition Big Bang watch to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Bitcoin.
Hublot is headquartered in Nylon in Switzerland and they have recently announced a special watch in collaboration with OS Limited for Bitcoinâs anniversary.
The new hand-assembled limited edition Big Bang model is now available for pre-order and in the spirit of the crypto space, the homepage even displays a project roadmap.
This watch doesnât come cheap though. If you have the money to afford it, this watch will set you back $25,000 and will be limited to 210 pieces as a little nod to the 21 million Bitcoin that will ever exist.
In the official announcement it states:
âPaying homage to both the Big Bang series and Blockchain technology, the watch features Big Bangâs signature industrial design as well as aesthetics inspired from cryptocurrency. To no surprise, â210â was chosen for a reason.â
It continued to say:
âThis Big Bang watch was created to commemorate the 10th anniversary of this epochal invention including the fact that only 21 million bitcoins will ever exist in this world.â
The Swiss company added that the watch represents a fusion between cutting-edge FinTech and the expert quality the Swiss are known for when it comes to watch design.
Hublot partnered up with Octagon Strategy Limited to promote the new model and it the Big Bang Meca-10 P2P will be launched on the 6th November this year whereas the delivery for the watches will begin on the 3rd January.
OSL is a digital asset brokerage company which will help process customer data during the pre-sale and has made a promise that customers will be safe and secure during their experience shopping.
Of course, the pre-sale registration might raise some questions for the hundreds of Bitcoin enthusiasts who love their privacy.
As said by Bitcoinist:
âIf youâd like to order a timepiece that costs tens of thousands of dollars, additional information such as the full name, address, and a phone number will be required. However, get ready to also upload copies of their government ID, passport and proof of address â as if youâre registering for a regulated Bitcoin exchange.â
