Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot partners with World Poker Tour to launch Big Bang Unico World Poker Tour Limited Edition watch. Began in 2014, when Hublot was named both “Official Timekeeper” and “Official Watch” of the premier name in internationally televised gaming and entertainment.
The new Big Bang Unico World Poker Tour Limited Edition was launched at the prestigious Upper House in Hong Kong. To present the timepiece, Hublot invited Mr. Eddy Liang, a 2014 WPT Sanya champion, to show guests the alluring magic generated between poker and fine watchmaking.
To pay exclusive tribute to poker, the Big Bang Unico World Poker Tour Limited Edition is limited to 188 pieces. The timepiece features a 45mm black ceramic case, 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 recognized symbols of poker: clubs, hearts, diamonds, and spades. The dial index at “8” is decorated by seven rubies, representing the Chinese tradition of luck and prosperity. The final touch is decorated with the WPT logo on the case-back crystal.
Following launch of the Big Bang Unico World Poker Tour Limited Edition in Asia, Hublot plans to expand the offering to additional regions, including the United States.
