Hublot has added new watch dedicated to professional sportists. This time, it is watch dedicated to the ultimate precision sport – golf. The Swiss watchmaker has joined forces with world #1 Golfer Dustin Johnson to unveil this timepiece specifically created to calculate golf scores for players on the course.
Hublot’s mechanical golf watch features aperture displays and is ultra-lightweight, providing true sports performance.
Hublot carried out a real-life test by inviting its friends to measure the length of their drives against those of Dustin Johnson on a simulator.
Quite a challenge, as the world’s number 1 golfer pushes the Trackman technology to the limit with his extraordinary strokes!
The case of the Big Bang Unico Golf is carved from Texalium, an innovative material, exclusive to Hublot, that is an amalgamation of carbon fiber and aluminum. This unique composite gives the watch its lightness – it weighs less than 100 grams.
The Big Bang Unico Golf has the look of a chronograph and has been conceived as a chronograph. Its movement features return-to-zero heart piece cams that ensure the counting mechanism is robust and reliable.
The putter-shaped pusher at 2 o-clock activates the mechanism for displaying the number of strokes taken and counts the strokes per hole. The pusher at 4 o’clock allows the wearer to move on to the next hole by resetting the stroke counter to zero. The counter at 6 o’clock displays the total number of strokes played and is simultaneously updated. The pusher at 8 o’clock is shaped like a tee. This resets the mechanism and sets the counters to zero at the end of the round. During the round, this button can be locked by rotating it by 45°, thus ensuring that it is not inadvertently activated.
The MHUB1580 full-skeleton movement allows the wearer to admire and understand how the timepiece works. The watch comes with two interchangeable wristbands fitted with the One Click system. One is made of white leather sewn on rubber and designed like a golf glove, while the other is made of technical fabric with a Velcro fastener to ensure the watch sits perfectly on the wrist. It is available from retailers and authorized distributors for $31,500.
