First as a leading martial arts practitioner, then as an actor, and now as a philanthropist, it was natural for timepiece maker HUBLOT to tap Jet Li as its Chinese brand ambassador. After it made its debut right before the holiday season, HUBLOT is finally making Jet Li’s signature watch, the Aero Bang Jet Li, available for purchase. Part of its novelties line of highly stylized watches, HUBLOT based the Aero Bang Jet Li on its Big Bang ceramic design. A skeletal dial face with intricate latticeworks are references to Shaolin temple, a religious institution founded in the 5th century and a training ground for Chinese Kung-Fu. The 1982 film version of Shaolin’s history was also Li’s debut on the big screen. Accentuated with red minute markings as well as stitching on the leather strap, symbolic to China and Li’s Chinese heritage, HUBLOT added Yin and Yang emblem onto the crystal case back at the request of Li in part to emphasize his own philosophy on life.
Each individually numbered, authenticated and signed by Jet Li, only 200 were made. Available through purchase inquiries at HUBLOT boutiques worldwide, just in time for Chinese New Year.
