Hublot Big Bang Texalium Blue Carbon Unico Golf Limited Edition
This is an usual watch with a very specific purpose. Created in partnership with Dustin Johnson, the number one ranked golfer in the world, the Big Bang Unico Golf has a newly-developed complication that allows the wearer to keep score of his or her golf game on the fly. On the right side of the 45mm case are two buttons – one adds a stroke to the player's score, while the second advances the game one hole. Down at six o'clock, a running total of the player's 18-hole score is kept with a pair of discs. At eight o'clock is a tee-shaped pusher that resets the whole thing back to zero.
The case might be large in dimensions – 45mm x 18.01mm – but it's extremely lightweight at just 98 grams because it is made of Texalium, a composite of fiberglass and aluminum, and carbon fiber. The screws are titanium, finishing things off true to form. You can also get a good look at the movement and how it works, as the entire thing is skeletonized. The dial for the Hublot Big Bang Unico Golf is a matte black ring with a central bridge and a secondary bridge to hold the 6:00 clock indicator in place.
The rest is left open to give the wearer a view of the wheels for the shot and hole counters and parts of the gear train. The applied hour markers and hands are rhodium plated and filled with lume for low-light legibility. The case and bezel for the watch are machined from Texalium, one of Hublot’s many proprietary materials – in this case, a combination of aluminum and carbon fiber.
Despite its large proportions of 45mm wide by 18.1mm thick, the Hublot Big Bang Unico Golf weighs in at a very light 98g thanks to the light Texalium (probably important for swinging a golf club). The pushers are titanium and the case is completed with AR-coated sapphire on both the front and back.
