Hublot continues the story of its Golf watches with the launch of the 2022 Big Bang UNICO Golf Orange Carbon – a truly mechanical golf watch that can keep track of your score over the course of an 18-hole round. How does this work? The brand mentions, “The shot-counting mechanism is activated by a yellow putter-shaped pusher at 2 o’clock, which also advances the yellow stroke counter visible through an aperture at 3 o’clock. When it’s time to move to the next hole, another putter-shaped pusher at 4 o’clock resets the shot indication to zero and advances the hole indication at 9 o’clock by one hole. The cumulative score goes up by one with every recorded shot, and is shown through an aperture at 6 o’clock. At the end of a round, the display can be reset to zero via the pusher at 8 o’clock. This pusher can be locked by rotating it 45 degrees to avoid accidentally resetting your score during a round.”

All of this can be achieved with the help of the ground-breaking Hublot MHUB1580 automatic movement sitting within the 45mm Orange carbon case structure.
