It seems that no sport or activity that Hublot does not participate in. This time the Hublot Chukker Bang watch has something to do with Polo. As a sponsor of the Polo Gold Cup Gstaad for several years, Hublot released a limited edition watch in honor of the game. The watch features a 44.5mm titanium case which displays two bezel options and the watch is teamed with a tan leather strap that is highly reminiscent of riding boots and saddles.
Like the Hublot timepieces made for soccer, they have specially designed the chronograph minute counter to apply to the game. The aptly named Chukker Bang watch has a chronograph that measures 7.5 minutes – the total length of one Polo game half, also called “chukka”. For the design of the watch, Hublot reportedly worked with Polo player as well as the Hublot brand ambassador, Facundo Pieres.
One unique version of the Chukker Bang watch has a titanium grill that is integrated into the titanium bezel. Traditionally, such grills were mean to protect vulnerable watch crystals during sport activities. In Polo – with balls, sticks, and hooves flying around – this was particularly a concern. The other version of the Chukker Bang without this grill has a black ceramic material bezel and also a diamond decorated bezel.
Ticking inside the Hublot Chukker Bang watch is the brand’s personalized caliber HUB1141 automatic chronograph movement with a flyback function. The Hublot Chukker Bang watch will be launched as a limited edition of only 500 pieces. Therefore, for the loyal fans of Hublot and the watch collectors, such a fabulous watch is definitely a must-have addition to their collection.
Of course, not all people can afford the genuine pieces with the hefty price. That is also the reason why the Hublot replica and Rolex replica watches are becoming more and more popular. If you have no a big budget, just go for the replica watch which will not disappoint you!
