We will take a look at the Hublot sports watch dedicated to this athlete and we will also detail why the Swiss brand did not hesitate for a second to have Usain Bolt among its ambassadors.
In addition to him, other great ambassadors have included Pele and the late Maradona and Kobe Bryant.
It should be noted that it is very normal for the watch industry to make alliances with great athletes and personalities, therefore, on more than one occasion they have launched watches inspired by their actions.
That is the case of the majestic high-end Hublot watches, dedicated to one of the greatest athletes in history:
Hublot sports watch for Usain Bolt Why?
Usain Bolt is a living legend this former Jamaican native athlete became the winner of 11 world titles, in addition to winning 8 times the Olympics.
He holds the world records in the 100 and 200 meter dash, and the 4×100 relay race with the Jamaican team.
He is the fastest man in the world, thanks to his time of 9 seconds and 58 hundredths achieved in Berlin in 2009.
Not for nothing has he been nicknamed “Lightning Bolt” or the “Bolt Lightning” and for this reason in his honor the watchmaker Hublot created a luxury watch as impressive as his career.
Time is as sacred to Bolt as it is to Hublot.
From both sides there is an incredible admiration, for Hublot it is an honor to have among its ambassadors the fastest man in the world.
Bolt once stated that he was delighted to join such prestigious ambassadors on behalf of the brand.
Finally, there is a great commonality between the two parties: time is what defines success for both Usain and Hublot.
Hublot King Power Usain Bolt Sport Watch.
The first watch Hublot released to honor the athlete was the King Power in 2012, every detail on it has a reason for being.
To begin with, the strap was made from the same leather as the shoes with which he broke the world record at the Beijing Olympics in 2008.
His typical gesture of celebration after victories, known as “The Archer”, was incorporated into the piece through a small anthracite gray silhouette on black that can be seen at 9 o’clock in the center of the small seconds hand.
The colors of the Jamaican flag are present in some elements of the dial, which is a great tribute not only to Usain but also to his country.
Another detail that makes the piece very beautiful is its case, 48 millimeters in diameter, made of sandblasted black ceramic.
Launched in a limited edition of only 250 units
Big Bang Unico Usain Bolt watch.
Then came a second collaboration between the firm and the competitor that resulted in a piece even more impressive than the previous one: the Big Bang Unico Usain Bolt.
A self-winding chronograph launched in two limited editions, the first time equipped with a luxurious yellow gold case and a shiny gold bracelet.
These gold details represent the three gold medals that Bolt longed to win during the 2016 Rio Olympics and finally did.
The other edition was the all black version in black ceramic, yellow gold screws and strap with the Jamaican flag engraved on it.
However, both pieces have green and yellow piping, alluding to the representative colors of the athlete’s country of origin.
The first version had only 100 copies and the second, the black model was produced a little more and reached 250 units.
Big Bang Sapphire Usain Bolt for Only Watch Unico.
Subsequently, a new Hublot watch model appears in honor of Usain, but with a very particular purpose.
In addition to coinciding with the farewell of the god of speed, the piece was created for a very noble reason and that is to support the Only Watch auction.
This served to raise funds to fight Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a disease that mainly affects boys.
Inspired by its predecessor, the Big Bang Unico Usain Bolt.
Hublot developed this version from its predecessor and thus was born the Big Bang Unico Sapphire Usain Bolt for Only Watch with a 45-millimeter transparent case.
The case was created entirely in sapphire crystal which reflects hard work, because it is one of the most difficult materials to mold and work with.
The idea of selecting this material is to leave a clear message of overcoming limits with the certainty that you can always succeed.
