Swiss watchmaker Hublot and Olympic Champion Justin Rose, who channeled the form that carried him to major championship and Olympic Games glory, joined hands to present the Big Bang Unico Golf, a new timepiece tailor made for golfers, in Hong Kong. The pursuit of ultimate precision required in both watchmaking and golf is what inspired Hublot to design, develop, manufacture, and assemble a module to equip its new UNICO movement, which has been specifically created for golf. The MHUB1580 movement allows golfers to seamlessly calculate their score whilst on course. Hublot’s mechanical golf watch features

Hublot invited guests at the Hong Kong Golf & Tennis Academy to discover the new Big Bang Unico Golf with Justin Rose, Olympic Champion and Hublot Ambassador, Mr. Sam Liu, Sports Marketing Director of Greater China of Hublot, Mr. Paul Cunningham, Director of Hong Kong Golf & Tennis Academy, and Mr. Stephen Au, General Manager of Hong Kong Golf & Tennis Academy.

"It has been a very successful 2017 season, and it is great to take some of this good form back to a place I have such fond memories of, having won in Hong Kong before. The launch of the Big Bang Unico Golf is an important moment for my friends from Hublot and I am proud to showcase it here at the Hong Kong Golf & Tennis Academy. It is certainly going to be a big hit with golfers around the world and a great addition to Hublot’s line up."

Justin Rose, Hublot Ambassador 

Justin Rose was invited to showcase the new mechanical golf watch designed and manufactured for golfers. To record this moment, guests were invited on the range to enjoy a golf demonstration by Justin Rose, with detailed explanation by Mr. Billy Martin, Coach of Hong Kong Golf & Tennis Academy and Director of the Jack Nicklaus Academy of Golf. Justin shared tips with attendees that helped him achieve the distinction of major and Olympic champion.

"These last few weeks have seen Justin surge into contention on the Race to Dubai rankings, a sign of a true Champion, being able to summon his very best form when it counts most. We are thrilled for Justin and we keep the Hublot celebrations rolling on. Golf watches do exist, but they tend to be digital. Our golf ambassadors influence and impact on the game inspired Hublot’s new manufactured golf watch. Mechanically advanced, brilliantly functional, contemporary look and easy to use, it is for sure a tribute to Hublot’s Art of Fusion."

The Big Bang Unico Golf is dedicated to the ultimate precision sport – golf. Hublot has designed, developed, manufactured and assembled a module to equip its new UNICO movement, which has been specifically created for golf. The MHUB1580 movement allows golfers to seamlessly calculate their score whilst on course. Hublot’s mechanical golf watch features aperture displays and is ultra-lightweight, providing true sports performance.
The case of the Big Bang Unico Golf is carved from Texalium®, an innovative material, that is an amalgamation of fiberglass and aluminum. This unique composite gives the watch its lightness; as 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.
