Hublot Big Bang Unico Golf


Hublot Big Bang Unico Golf 1

Hublot is known for its numerous sports partnerships, the latest being with the world’s number one golfer Dustin Johnson.  Nicknamed “DJ”, the 33-year-old American has been professional since 2007. In 2016 he won his first major championship by winning the U.S. Open. In addition to this, he also has 16 wins on the PGA tour. Most notable among these achievements are the five World Golf Championships victories. He is only player in history to win all four of these tournaments. Regarded by many as a phenom in the world of golf, he has revolutionized how the game is perceived. Inspired by Dustin Johnson’s  influence and impact on the game, Hublot has created a new golf watch – the Big Bang Unico Golf (ref. 416.YS.1120.VR). Mechanically advanced, the timepiece has a modern design and is easy to use.

Dedicated to the ultimate precision sport, the new Hublot Big Bang Unico Golf is the world’s first mechanical golf watch with aperture display. To achieve this, the Swiss watchmaker has developed a special module to equip its new UNICO movement, which has been specifically made for golf. Thanks to the ingenious caliber MHUB1580, the golfers can easily and effortlessly calculate their score while on course. The Big Bang Unico Golf is not just easy to use, it is also easy to hold. Its case is made from a special material called Texalium. Exclusive to Hublot, this highly innovative material is a mixture of aluminum and carbon fiber. The unique material gives the watch a weight of only 98 grams!

The new Hublot Big Bang Unico Golf features the look and feel of a chronograph. Positioned at 2 and 4 o’clock are two putter-shaped pushers. By pressing the one at 2 o’clock, the user activates the mechanism for displaying the number of strokes taken and counting the strokes per hole. The push-piece at 4 o’clock allows the golfer to advance to the next hole by resetting the stroke counter to zero. The display at 6 o’clock shows the overall number of strokes played and is simultaneously updated. At 8 o’clock we have a pusher shaped like a golf tee. This pusher resets the entire mechanism and adjusts the counters to zero at the end of the round. The 8 o’clock pusher can also be locked so it cannot be activated  by accident.

Housed in an ultra-light 45mm Texalium case, the Hublot Big Bang Unico Golf is water resistant to 100 meters. Underneath the front sapphire crystal is a beautiful skeleton mat black dial with satin-finished rhodium plated indexes and hands. Featuring 43 jewels, the caliber MHUB1580 beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and guarantees a power reserve of approximately 72 hours. Composed of 358 components, this self-winding movement is visible through both sides of the case. The latest Hublot Big Bang Unico Golf is available with two interchangeable straps: one made of technical fabric and featuring a Velcro fastener, and the other made of white calf leather sewn on black rubber.
