ON THE GREEN
Hublot has made an ultralight, practical watch for golfers in a limited edition of 200 pieces. The watch keeps track of the number of shots you play during a round. Get into the swing!
Unlike most other sports, the best golf players are the ones with the lowest scores. But when you play an 18-hole course you still need a scorecard and a pen to fill it in. With the Big Bang Unico Golf Blue Carbon, Hublot gives you the chance to save your performance on your watch in a very simple way. There are three sub-dials on the open-work dial. The first, at 9 o’clock, counts the holes. Its counterpart at 3 o’clock records the number of shots you make at each hole. And the opening at 6 o’clock tots up all the shots played during a round. To keep track of your birdies and eagles, there are also three monopushers around the 45mm-wide case. The putter-shaped pusher at 2 o’clock activates the display mechanism for the number of shots and gives you the count for each hole. With the second, at 4 o’clock, you can go on to the next hole and reset the shot counter to zero. A press on the tee-shaped pusher at 8 o’clock resets the whole mechanism. You can then start a new round.
To guarantee that this is a very comfortable watch to wear, Hublot has made the case from a high-tech alloy, Texalium, a combination of fibre glass and aluminium. The result? The Big Bang Unico Golf Blue Carbon only weighs 98 grams! The watch can be precisely adjusted to the wrist with a velcro fastener on the contemporary strap.
