The most streamed French artist in the world, with a slew of international hits, DJ Snake collaborates with watchmaker Hublot to create the DJ Snake Big Bang.

With those months working from home, you might have come across the ever-talented DJ Snake. The electronic music star first came to public attention with the track Turn Down For What, released in 2013, and has since worked with the likes of Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Diplo, Kanye West, and Lil Jon. Oh, and he was the first French artist to have two songs with over a billion plays on Spotify so yeah, he’s kind of a big deal.

Hublot and DJ Snake have worked together since 2018, when he presided over the decks at Hublot’s closing evening during the FIFA World Cup in Russia. Three years later, the first watch of this partnership is being unveiled: The Big Bang DJ Snake.

The iconic design of the Big Bang now has an iridescent shine, with countless blue and purple hues achieved by treating the bezel and the six titanium components of the 45-mm case – each of which are hardened in advance – with a special and technical manufacturing process, similar to a black PVD treatment. The result is an optical effect in which the colours of the watch change depending on the light and when viewed from different angles.

Distinguishing the new timepiece from other Big Bangs, the outer edge of the bezel was designed by DJ Snake himself. On the upper face of the sapphire dial, in the same colours as the case, a globe is featured, the signature of the electronic music star, while the lower section is skeletonised and treated to create sections with a black fumé finish. This semi-transparent finish allows a glimpse of the famous calibre HUB1242 UNICO movement, a flyback chronograph with a power reserve of 72 hours.

Limited to 100 pieces, the Big Bang DJ Snake will be supplied with two straps that are easily interchangeable thanks to Hublot’s patented One Click system. The first is made from rubber, with a grey, black and purple camouflage pattern echoing the myriad colours reflected by the watch case. The second, also rubber, has a black ribbed structure. The clasp on these straps also features the same “Newton’s Rings” effect as the case and bezel.
