Sporty Men’s Day Specials
FIND THE PERFECT GIFT IN THIS SPECIALLY CURATED CATALOGUE OF HUBLOT’S SPORTS INSPIRED SPECIALS
With International Men’s Day on Nov 19, it is perhaps the perfect occasion to celebrate with the most important men of our lives – fathers, brothers, sons and husbands with an exquisite timepiece from Swiss haute horologists Hublot.
With this special day, Hublot has unveiled a specially curated catalogue featuring some of its more recent sports-inspired specials. Given how sports unite all men, are the perfect gifts for the occasion. Simply put, there’s a Hublot special here made for the avid golfer, motorsports enthusiast, or even a die-hard football fan.
Hublot x Ferrari
The Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Unico Magic Gold features a 45-mm case and bezel cut in the most scratch-resistant solid gold ever conceived. The watch displays the new contours of the Big Bang Unico model redrawn last year by the Ferrari x Hublot team, boasting a tachymeter-style minute counter, and a date aperture that’s presented in gear selector mode. The famed prancing horse emblem proudly sits at 6 o’clock whilst a second counter, designed to look like an air extractor, sits at 9 o’clock.
Next comes a fitting finish through straps that feature black alcantara sewn onto black rubber and bearing the red topstitching motif – just like Ferrari’s supercar cabins. Underneath the sapphire dial sits a Unico manufacture HUB1241 movement with a 72-hour power reserve, beating at the rhythm of 28,800 vibrations per hour. Adding provenance here is the fact that this special is limited to just 250 pieces worldwide.
Next comes the Hublot Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon, which comes in two flavours – PEEK Carbon and Sapphire Gold. The Techframe was designed by Ferrari using the same creative processes as used to develop a new sports car, by starting with the ‘engine’. In this case, it happens to be its newly developed HUB6311 calibre movement underneath it that boasts manual winding, as well as a five-day power reserve.
Treated with ruthenium anthracite, this finely tuned “engine” also stands out by its imposing tourbillon that is visible on the dial. This special, made in celebration of Ferrari’s 70th anniversary, is limited to just 70 pieces worldwide, thus making it a highly collectible prize as well.
Big Bang Chelsea FC
The Big Bang Chelsea FC is the second offering created in partnership with the world famous English football club. It features a 44mm stainless steel case and a bezel made of carbon fibre and blue Texalium. Its blue sunray dial proudly matches the club’s iconic blue jerseys, and it features three counters at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, the latter also engraved with “SW6”, the Fulham postcode where Stamford Bridge is located.
Powered by a self-winding chronograph, the Big Bang Chelsea FC boasts a 42-hour power reserve. The Chelsea lion is highlighted both at 12 o’clock and on the sapphire crystal case-back. To put the final touches to this all blue look, the strap comes in rubber and blue alligator with a stainless steel deployant buckle clasp. By the way, this is another collector’s special as it is limited to just 200 pieces worldwide.
Classic Fusion Chronograph Juventus
This third timepiece made in collaboration with another household name in football celebrates Hublot’s status as the club’s official timekeeper too. Underneath, the new Classic Fusion Chronograph Juventus mounts the HUB1143 self-winding chronograph movement. A sporty and elegant mood, enhanced by the polished satin black ceramic case and bezel with black ceramic base that houses the carbon fibre, marked by six titanium screws in the shape of an H.
Naturally, there is no shortage of references to the world of Juventus: the symbol of the current holder of the Champions of Italy title - the 35th - is engraved on the back of the watch, but it is also clearly visible on the dial, and on the seconds counter set at 3 o’clock. Proposed in a limited edition of 200 pieces, each of which sold with a kit complete with Juventus shirt autographed by one of the stars of the team as well.
Big Bang Unico Golf
This special mounts a Unico movement with an added module designed, developed, manufactured and assembled specifically created for golf. In essence, the MHUB1580 movement grants golfers a means to seamlessly calculate their score whilst on course. Hublot’s mechanical golf watch also features aperture displays and is ultra-lightweight, providing true sports performance. Truly a golfer’s special indeed.
The case of the Big Bang Unico Golf is carved from Texalium, granting this watch its unbelievable lightness of just 98 grams. 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.
