Hublot's First Mechanical Golf Watch

Hublot's stroke of genius is a revolution. Presenting the Big Bang Unico Golf – the mechanical golf watch with an aperture display.

Swiss watchmaker Hublot and #1 Golfer Dustin Johnson unveiled the perfect watch for the ultimate precision sport, golf – the Big Bang Unico Golf. The timepiece is the perfect accessory for all golfer's allowing them to calculate their score with a single push whilst on course.

Equipped with the new UNICO movement, MHUB1580, specially created for golf, the ultra-light mechanical watch features aperture digital displays. The case is carved from Texalium® - a Hublot patent amalgamation of carbon fiber and aluminium – and gives the timepiece the ultra-light weight of 97.93 grams.

"The Big Bang Unico Golf has a contemporary design and is easy to use. It has digital displays and is very light – less than 100 grams on the wrist. It has everything that I want from a golf watch and is the perfect fit."

The chronograph was unveiled in Shanghai, yesterday by both the #1 Golfer and the leading Swiss watch brand. The putter-shaped pusher located at the 2 o'clock position activates the mechanism to display the counts for the strokes per hole and the total number of strokes. The 4 o'clock position pusher resets the stroke counter to zero before the next hole. The pusher at 8 o'clock – shaped like a tee – resets the mechanism and sets the counters to zero at the end of the round. The button can be locked by rotating it by 45 degree during the round to ensure that it's not activated mid-game by mistake.

The watch comes with two interchangeable bands fitted with the One Click system. The first is designed like a golf glove and is made of white leather sewn on rubber, while the second one ensures the watch sits perfectly on the wrist with a Velcro fastener.
