Big Bang Unico Depeche Mode

Hublot and Depeche Mode have been partners since 2010 and have supported charity: water on three other occasions since 2013. In 2017, ahead of their upcoming Global Spirit Tour, Hublot has created a 250 piece limited edition watch to celebrate the band’s new album Spirit. The sale of the watch will raise funds for charity: water, a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring clean and safe drinking water to people in developing countries. The new Big Bang Unico Depeche Mode is presented in a 45 mm x 16.30 mm knurled and polished black ceramic case, with a knurled and polished black ceramic bezel, knurled black-plated titanium crown and pushers, and a polished black ceramic sapphire crystal caseback.

The Macallan and Urwerk collaborate to create an over-engineered whisky flask

Single-malt “scotch” whisky and watches go hand in hand. It is not to say everyone that collects fine wristwatches drinks, or drinks scotch whisky, but an inordinate amount of the watch collectors I have met do like good whisky. Sometimes referred to as “liquid gold” single-malt whisky has seen a surge in popularity in recent years, and like watch companies, scotch companies also make rare expensive editions that carry obscene price tags. Needless to say, scotch and watches, pair very well together. Just ask Christopher Beccan, the Founder/Editor of Bexsonn, a blog entirely dedicated to fine whisky and timepieces. So, it is not that surprising when we heard earlier this week that the Macallan distillery, based in Moray, Scotland, and modern haute horology watchmaker, Urwerk, who is based in Geneva, Switzerland, have collaborated to produce a technically sophisticated two-chamber limited

The Notorious Watches of Conor McGregor

Jason Pitsch

Conor McGregor is notorious for his trash talk, for his ability to fight and win in the UFC in multiple weight classes, and for his extravagant lifestyle including an affinity for custom made suits, luxury cars, and high-end mechanical watches. He is currently the UFC lightweight (155lb) champion, after a win by TKO against defending champion Eddie Alvarez on November 12, 2016. Upon winning that fight McGregor became the first fighter in UFC’s history to hold titles in two weight divisions simultaneously, as he was still holding the featherweight (145lb) title at the time. Which, by the way, he earned December 12, 2015, when he KO’d JosΓ© Aldo in a mere thirteen seconds and earned him the accolade of the fastest victory in UFC title fight history.
