Hublot Unico Big Bang Golf Watch
Hublot Automatic Watches on Amazon
Luxury watch brand Hublot recently signed Dustin Johnson as a brand ambassador and introduced a golf-specific luxury watch.. I had, quite frankly, not heard of Hublot until now. But then, I am never likely to actually own a luxury watch, so I haven’t been in the market. Still, this one seems very cool.
Hublot’s new Unico with the MHUB1580 movement allows golfers to track their score while on course. Hublot says its mechanical golf watch features aperture displays and is ultra-lightweight, providing true sports performance.
From the company:
The case of the Hublot Unico Big Bang Golf Watch 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 weights precisely 97.93 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.
Very cool. I especially like the golf-glove-emulating band.
