Hublot is proud to launch the exclusive limited edition Big Bang Unico watch in partnership with the 2017 World Poker Tour®. The union between the fine craftsmanship of Swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot and the fiery display of championship poker playing will be a testament to Hublot’s unparalleled skill in the art of fusion in their watches.
Hublot and World Poker Tour’s global partnership started in 2014. The swiss watchmaker has been the first luxury brand to be both official timekeeper and official watch of an international professional poker circuit tournament. Starting in 2015, Hublot also sponsored the High Roller competition of the World Poker Tour National China circuit. The irresistible charm of combining topclass poker and the art of watchmaking is a testimonial of the brand’s pursuit of creative originality and high-end lifestyle.
This year’s “Hublot High roller” competition will start at 2:00pm on the 18th of November, and will last for 3 days. The finals will be held on November 20th and will be hosted by Mr Loic Biver, General Manager of Hublot Greater China. Mr. Biver will also present a brand new limited-edition Big Bang Unico World Poker Tour watch to the winner of the prestigious tournament.
The event was attended by General Manager of Hublot Greater China Mr Loic Biver; WPT® CEO Adam Pliska, Our Game CEO Frank Ng; and friend of Hublot and poker player Mr Raymond and Eddy. As highlight of the evening, Mr Wu held a Texas Hold’em game workshop, and gave the guests a first-hand experience to the game as well as some useful tricks.
The limited-edition Big Bang Unico World Poker Tour pays tribute to Poker. Limited to 188 pieces, it features a 45mm black ceramic case and a polished black ceramic bezel, powered by the in-house UNICO Manufacture Chronograph. It also integrates subtle elements of poker in its design. Treated with micro-sandblasting, the new ceramic casing highlights the universally recognised symbols of poker; the Hearts, Clubs, Spades and Diamonds. The dial index at “8” is decorated by 7 rubies, representing luck and prosperity in the Chinese tradition. The final touch on the watch is the WPT logo on the case back crystal.
