BIG BANG UNICO WBC
A WATCH THAT PACKS A PUNCH
To celebrate its Night of Champions gala dinner in Las Vegas, Hublot unveiled a limited-edition chronograph, champion in its class.
Mike Tyson, George Foreman, Evander Holyfield, Sugar Ray Leonard… All the great legends of the noble art were there for the gala evening organized by the WBC (World Boxing Council). This fundraising event was held in aid of the José Sulaiman Boxers Fund created in partnership with Hublot in 2012, which provides help to retired boxers in difficulty. All the boxers attending the event received a Big Bang Unico WBC. This 100-piece limited edition combines a 45 mm microblasted and polished green ceramic case crowned with a bezel made of the same material and a self-winding movement. The HUB1242 calibre regulates the functioning of the time information for 72 hours once wound.
On the openwork dial, the two large hands point to the numerals and index markers. The measurement of short time intervals is done using the central second hand and the counter at 3 o’clock. The flyback function enables a series of timed rounds to be done swiftly. This piece is completed with a discreet date located below the chronograph counter.
The Big Bang Unico WBC comes with a green alligator strap which is a nod to the belt awarded to a champion at the end of a world title fight. Hublot has also released its chronograph in a precious version limited to only 50 pieces in 18K King Gold.
Price: 26,900 CHF (ceramic) – 36,900 CHF (yellow gold and ceramic) www.hublot.com
