Hublot has launched Big Bang Unico Bi- retrograde Chronograph, the official watch of Guangzhou Evergrande Taobao Football Club.
This timepiece perfectly fused the functionality of soccer chronograph with Evergrande logo. The Big Bang Unico is the first Hublot timepiece ever produced with a bi-retrograde function along with a central chronograph dedicated to a top football club. Hublot watch series with self-produced UNICO movement is unique enough to stun the watchmaking industry. When you press the chronograph button, chronograph second hand and minute hand start to time from left to right within 45 minutes showing an arc track, which is half time of the football game. Another area is increased for a 15 minute timer so that the whole timekeeping time comes to 60 minutes. There is one Go button on each side of the crown, representing the timing to start, stop and reset. The button at 2 o’clock position will also be used to control the timing of 4 patterns: the first half, half time, the second half and the final whistle, all displaying clearly through a window located at the 12 o’clock position.
The iconic design of integrated column-wheel and dual-clutch on dial side perfectly show an exceptional flexibility of UNICO movement.
