Hublot Big Bang Unico TMT 1

In collaboration with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr., Hublot has created a special chronograph watch – the Big Bang Unico TMT. Winner of multiple world titles in five different weight classes, and the holder an undefeated record of 50–0, Mr. Mayweather is, as he says, crazy about mechanical beauties, especially sparkling watches. In an interview prior to the unveiling of the watch, “Money” expressed his joy of working with Hublot, a winning brand that’s connected to so many athletes and entertainers who are winners in life. For him the new Big Bang Unico TMT means a lot as it symbolizes his career, his unbeaten record, and the last fight when he made history.

Together with Hublot’s CEO Ricardo Guadalupe, Floyd Mayweather Jr. unveiled the new Big Bang Unico TMT last Saturday at the brand’s Crystals Boutique in Las Vegas. The watch comes in two editions: the Big Bang Unico TMT Carbon Gold (ref. 411.QX.1180.PR.TMT18) and the Big Bang Unico TMT Yellow Gold Jewellery (ref. 411.VX.1180.PR.0904.TMT18). The former is limited to 100 pieces while the latter is issued in a limited numbered edition of only 10 pieces. Priced at $28,300 and $93,700 respectively, the latest Hublot watches are delivered with a boxing glove signed by Mayweather himself.

The new Big Bang Unico TMT models take inspiration from the shorts Floyd Mayweather wore during “The Money Fight” against Conor McGregor on 26th August 2017. Featuring a black and gold color theme, Mayweather’s shorts for his 50th fight were designed by Sophie Whittam – the owner of Fight Label, a company that produces luxury custom fight wear. The main body of the shorts features an illustration of representing Floyd on his own $1 million note. The design was first cut out of gold leaf and then applied by hand onto matte-black lambskin. Cut out of suede and brilliant black python skin, the waistband features the words “HUBLOT” (front) and “TBE” (back) in gold. The two words are embroidered with Swarovski crystals.

Now back to the watches. Both Big Bang Unico TMT models are 45mm wide and water resistant to 100 meters. The Carbon Gold edition features a case and bezel made of gold-incrusted carbon fiber. This unique material is created by manually inserting gold powder into the carbon fiber layers which are then compressed. The Yellow Gold Jewellery model, as its name suggests, has a yellow gold case adorned with precious stones. The case, bezel and dial feature a total of 426 diamonds! Both watches have a transparent sapphire caseback that features an inscription Mayweather’s famous mantra TBE, “The Best Ever”.

The layout is the same on both versions, with hours, minutes, small seconds at 9 and 60-minute counter at 3 o’clock. Inside the chronograph counter is also the date display.
