The golden winning standard: Hublot Big Bang Unico x Usain Bolt
History was made once again when the fastest man in the world clinched another three gold wins — known as a triple treble — in the Rio Summer Olympics and set an unprecedented record following two previous triple treble feats back in the Beijing and London Games. And as Usain Bolt inks his name in the Olympic Hall of Fame, so does Hublot as they rally triumphantly with their star ambassador with the launch of a Big Bang Unico dedicated to his awe-inspiring win.
Inaugurated during the Rio opening ceremony, the Big Bang Unico Usain Bolt was unveiled by Hublot to much fanfare with its iconic silhouette crowned in bold gold. Crafted from 18K yellow gold, the 45mm-sized watch captures attention like no other with a unique lighting bolt chronograph hand that tracks its flyback count against a matte black skeleton dial. A precision performance machine that runs impeccably like its namesake, this exclusive Big Bang is powered by an in-house HUB1242 Unico Manufacture self-winding movement with a column wheel and also boasts a calendar display at three o'clock.
Outfitted with touches of green on the watch face to complement its striking gold case, Bolt's home country is proudly emblazoned upon the straps, marking the timepiece with Jamaica's flag. Available in an alternate black ceramic version, the Hublot Big Bang Unico Usain Bolt is the haute horlogerie symbol of victory that constantly pushes the boundaries to attain greatness.
The Unico Big Bang Usain Bolt yellow gold is limited to 100 pieces and the Black Ceramic version is limited to 250 pieces, available at Hublot boutiques.
