This limited edition of only 100 examples marks five years of fruitful collaboration between the watch manufacturer and the French luxury shoe maker.

In 2016, the watchmaker introduced the amazing Classic Fusion model clad in leather. Yet, not just any leather, but the emblematic Venezia leather developed using an exclusive tanning process developed by the Maison Berluti. This complicity, reissued since then, comes to life this year with a limited series of 100 timepieces of the Big Bang Unico Berluti Aluminio. For this particular model, the patina of the Aluminio leather lends character to the watch by covering both the bezel and the openwork dial. Its combination with a light and robust 44mm diameter polished titanium case confers a resolutely contemporary aesthetic.

The sapphire backing of the case facilitates the appreciation of the finishing of this complex mechanism.
