The craze around cryptocurrencies seems to have faded away, with most of the blockchain-driven digital currencies trading significantly lower than their all time highs; however, cryptocurrencies might be down, but certainly not dead. Swiss watch company Hublot has announced the launch of a special limited edition its Big Bang watch that can only be purchased with Bitcoin. The special edition has been created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Bitcoin, along with the watchmaker’s recent partnership with digital asset brokerage OS Limited back announced in July. Only 210 copies of the watch will be made – the number originates from an amalgamation of the fact that 21 million bitcoins can be mined and celebration of its tenth anniversary.
According to Hublot, the limited edition watch will feature the Big Bang series’ signature design along with aesthetics inspired from cryptocurrency. OSL will be the sole broker for all sales of the watch and will process all order data. The watch will come engraved with a unique serial number which will, in fact, be the number of the transaction on the blockchain they used to buy that watch, says Hublot. Although, the price of the watch isn’t listed on the product page, but it’s available for pre-sale with the striking date set for October 31st. Hublot will start delivering the watches beginning 3rd of January 2019.
