Introducing The Hublot Big Bang Unico Golf Replica Watch

by Administrator

 

Quick Take


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.

Why This Watch Matters


Sure, this isn't the most practical complication for everyday wear, but there's more to this watch than just that. 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.http://www.prowatches.co/hublot-big-bang-c-29_30.html

Initial Thoughts


If I'm being honest, this definitely isn't a watch for me. Between its rather beefy profile and its very specific use for scoring a sport that I do not play, I don't think I'll be strapping one on anytime soon. However, I do think we can learn something from this watch: It's a non-traditional, outside-the-box way of thinking about what a mechanical wristwatch can be, and it's one that is both seriously engineered and not-too-serious in its approach. Those are all things I can definitely get behind.
