A month after linking up with talented artist Richard Orlinski for some special-edition timepieces, iconic watch brand Hublot has revealed plans for the Big Bang Unico Golf.
Produced in conjunction with Dustin Johnson, the highest-ranked professional golfer out there, Hublot’s latest creation is built for those serious watch and golf enthusiasts interested in merging both of their preferred passions. The Big Bang Unico Golf allows its wearer to keep track of their golf game, with two buttons — located on the right side of the watch’s 45mm case — manufactured for the purpose of scorekeeping and fine-tuning your skills. For the watch’s build, Hublot have employed titanium, Texalium — a “composite of fiberglass and aluminum” — and carbon fiber to put together a durable, eye-catching timepiece.
You can take a look at Hublot’s new Hublot Big Bang Unico Golf, and find out more about the $31,500 USD watch at Hublot’s official website. Last year, Hublot also released an ultra-limited watch collection to commemorate the headline-dominating Mayweather vs. McGregor fight.
A great way to spend the summer is to play golf. This game has it all, as you get to be outside, often in the most beautiful surroundings, as you walk from hole to hole. While it can be a very relaxing experience, you are challenged at the same time. Only with peace of mind, focus, restain, and control do you get a chance to beat your personal record. Keeping track of this can be done in various ways, but the coolest is still by wearing the Hublot Big Bang Unico Golf.
This model, launched in 2017, was an immediate hit. The reason for this was the mechanical score counter, tailored for golf, incorporated in the timepiece. While, for example, Cartier made watches with a similar complication in the 1990s, it remains an extremely rare one. As a true Hublot, the Big Bang Unico Golf excels in how easy it is to use. Color-coded pushers on the right side of the case allow you to easily add your shots as you make them. Switching holes is done with a simple press of the lower button, and at all times, your Hublot keeps track of the total score in an easy to read way.
For the design, Hublot took inspiration from a golfers glove and included some high-tech materials to make the Hublot Big Bang Unico Golf look unlike any other watch. The case has a carbon-fiber core over which Hublot applied a grey Texalium upper layer. This not only gives the watch a unique and high-tech look, but also makes it extremely light so that it won’t interfere with your swing. The sapphire dial has an anti-reflective treatment making that it can be read under all conditions. Inspired by a golfers glove, is the strap on this Big Bang a work of art in its own right. As usual, Hublot goes the extra mile to ensure that also outside the golf court, the Big Bang Unico Golf stands its ground. It not only has a power reserve of 72 hours but is also water-resistant up to 100 meters.
