Artist and activist Shepard Fairey joins forces with Hublot. For the complete story on the partnership, visit my Perfect Timing column on Forbes.com. In the meantime, we bring you the basics of this relationship and the technical specifications of the new Hublot Big Bang Meca-10  Shepard Fairey Watch in Blue and in Gray. The relationship between Hublot and  the famed artist — perhaps most well-known for his Barack Obama  “Hope” poster or the “Andre the Giant has a Posse” sticker campaign for his clothing company Obey —  continues the brand’s commitment to art. In fact, four years ago, Hublot began the “Hublot Loves Art” campaign and has since partnered with artists, sculptors and street artists. In the new partnership, Shepard Fairey has co-designed the Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 watch. The new Meca-10  Shepard Fairey watch is offered in two editions — blue and gray — and each features bold color accents and a specially created Shepard Fairey case decoration that is carried through to the strap. Each watch is made in a limited edition of 100 pieces and reach retails for $28,300.
