Hublot x Floyd Mayweather
No strangers to collaborating with sports personalities and A-list stars, Hublot have partnered with world renowned boxer Floyd Mayweather on a limited edition Hublot. Following on from his win with MMA star Conor McGregor last August in Las Vegas, time has been nothing but good to Floyd Mayweather who constantly accepts any challenge. Mayweather is the sixth athlete in history to surpass $1 billion in career earnings and producing limited edition timepieces with Hublot is just the cherry on top.
“Hublot is a winning brand… It’s connected to so many athletes and entertainers who are winners in life. And the TMT brand – all we did was win, win win”. – Floyd Mayweather
Mayweather’s Big Bang Unico TMT will come in two variants, one called “Carbon Gold” and the other, “Yellow Gold Jewellery”. For the first time ever, Hublot uses 3N-gold encrusted carbon fiber which decorates the case and bezel with this bold composite material. A painstaking procedure, the 3N-gold encrusted carbon is made by manually inserting gold powder into individual carbon fiber layers and then compressing them. The second timepiece is emblazoned with 400+ diamonds that are set in the dial, case and bezel – all satin-finished. What both watches do share is a black calf leather strap fitted with python and gold studs, designed to resemble Mayweather’s winning shorts in his fight against Conor McGregor.
A truly unique feature of the watch is the skeleton dial which displays a gold “TMT” at 12 o’clock in a needlework applique technique that is rarely seen in horology. TMT is short for Mayweather’s lifestyle brand, “The Money Team”. This emblem is juxtaposed with a second inscription, “TBE” standing for “The Best Ever”. This is on the sapphire caseback, which adds further flair and represents Mayweather’s boisterous and loud sense of style.
Like many watches in the Hublot Unico line, the TMT pieces measure a standard 45mm in diameter with a thickness of 15.45mm. For the true watch aficionados, the watch gives a nice glance into the momentous HUB1242 Unico movement; an in-house movement that’s made up of 330 hand-assembled components with a 3-day power reserve.
The striking Big Bang Unico TMT will be released in a limited number of 100 watches. In the meantime shop our current selection of Hublot’s here.
