Hublot - Big Bang Unico Sapphire Usain Bolt for Only Watch

Hublot Big Bang Unico Sapphire Usain Bolt for Only Watch

For the 2017 edition, Hublot has partnered with Usain Bolt to create a watch that embodies hope and the will to defeat

Times, muscles and hope against disease

"It is our hope that this watch, along with what Usain Bolt and ourselves are offering the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy, will symbolise this notion, the desire and the ambition to see "the strongest muscles - those of Usain Bolt - helping to support the weakest muscles - those afflicted by the muscle-weakening disease, muscular dystrophy."  Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot

"I'm thankful to have full use of my muscles and to have been able to run fast and set so many records. I’m happy to support Only Watch and help in the scientific and medical research on neuromuscular diseases."  Usain Bolt, three-time Olympic triple gold medallist and Hublot Ambassador

Since 2005, Hublot has been working alongside Only Watch to support the courage and determination both of children suffering from Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and of future generations, and so that, one day, research will triumph over this disease. Is there anyone who symbolises victory, courage, determination and the desire to excel better than Usain Bolt?

Unique creation for Only Watch

For the 2017 edition, Hublot has created a transparent watch out of sapphire, one of the most difficult materials to machine. In choosing this material, it has sought to convey a message - that of pushing limits ever further, always believing that they can be exceeded or overcome. A watch that embodies hope and the desire to win. Inspired by one of champion Usain Bolt's favourite models, the Big Bang Unico Sapphire Usain Bolt for Only Watch is emblazoned with the Jamaican sprinter's trademark gold and vibrant colours. A symbol of victory to adorn the wrist.

To fully underscore the commitment of Hublot and Usain Bolt to the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy, and to illustrate the notion that it's the time you give to a cause that makes the cause so important1, Hublot will organize a meet & greet between the winner of the bid and the fastest man of the world, Usain Bolt.

Gold for victory; green for hope

Unique creation for Only Watch

In a 45 mm Big Bang case, the Big Bang Unico Sapphire Usain Bolt for Only Watch showcases a green and gold design paired with a transparent strap. This unique piece will be auctioned with a second strap, in yellow-gold colour calfskin, featuring the silhouette of the Jamaican flag, in a nod to the athlete's origins. The counter at 9 o'clock bears the silhouette of the "Lightning Bolt" and his iconic victory sign. The skeleton dial is made from 3N 18K yellow gold.

This unique piece is accompanied by a PUMA t-shirt signed by the fastest man in the world.

Estimate: CHF 50,000 - 80,000, EUR 46,000 - 73,000, USD 52,000 - 83,000

The brand

From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.
