BIG BANG UNICO GOLF
THE FUSION OF DUSTIN JOHNSON & HUBLOT !
Launched on October 23 in Shanghai, the BIG BANG UNICO GOLF is a collaboration between DUSTIN JOHNSON (the world no1 golfer) and HUBLOT. The result :
The First Mechanical Golf timepiece !
It's been several years that Hublot impresses me with their collaborations. You probably know that « Fusion » is one of their key word if not the word that describes the brand but damn, they strike once again with this one.
The job done design wise is Brilliant! Great details are present on the piece like the reset pusher at 8 o’clock in the shape of a golf tee or the design of the bracelet inspired by golf gloves. The dial is easily readable (time and golf indications) and the brand’s DNA (or codes) are there with its case shape, an open dial, "H" screws…
The movement is a UNICO (self winding calibre) with an additional module. It looks like a chronograph but is not!
That’s how it works :
- At 2 o’clock, the pusher activates the mechanism for displaying the number of strokes taken and counts the strokes per hole (in yellow)
- At 4 o’clock, the pusher allows the wearer to move on to the next hole by resetting the stroke counter to zero
- At 8 o’clock, the pusher resets the counters to zero. This button can also be locked by a 45° rotation.
- The total number of strokes is displayed at 6 o’clock and updated while you’re handling it.
The Texalium case (a material exclusive to Hublot) weighs only 98 grams! In fact, it’s an amalgamation of carbon and aluminum. The perfect choice for a Sports creation.
Well done, HUBLOT.
