Is this the week of American themed watches or what? Just a few days ago I discussed the Perrelet Turbine XL America, that was a bit of a polarizing piece. Now I present to the Swiss Hublot US Liberty Bang – one of Hublot’s latest limited edition Big Bang watches. This watch was unveiled recently in Philadelphia of all places – during the annual award ceremony where the Constitution Center (a non-government organization) gave out its annual Liberty Medal award.

The watch will be exclusively available in the US (duh) and limited to just 100 pieces. The dial of the 45mm wide Big Bang watch has a US flag motif made up of text. That text begins with the preamble of the US Constitution followed by other that as far as I know is not in the Constitution I read. Seems like descriptive text talking about the founding fathers, etc… Still pretty cool. It is interesting from a poetic standpoint to have the flag made up of words, as powerful words were really what we study when discussing the history of the US and its formation. The watch case is in black ceramic and priced at $11,900.
