Since 2005, Hublot has been working alongside ONLY WATCH, an annual charity auction event for watch connoisseurs and manufactures, which supports the courage and determination both of children suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and of future generations, and so that, one day, research will triumph over this disease. Is there anyone who symbolizes victory, courage, determination and the desire to excel better than Usain Bolt?
For the 2017 edition, Hublot has created a transparent watch out of sapphire, one of the most difficult materials to machine. In choosing this material, it has sought to convey a message – that of pushing limits ever further, always believing that they can be exceeded or overcome. The Big Bang Unico Sapphire Usain Bolt for ONLY WATCH is a timepiece that embodies hope and the desire to win. Inspired by one of champion Usain Bolt’s favorite models, the Big Bang Unico Sapphire Usain Bolt for Only Watch is emblazoned with the Jamaican sprinter’s trademark gold and vibrant colors.
ONLY WATCH – the 7th edition of the biennial auction of unique timepieces sold for the benefit of research on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy will take place on Saturday 11 November 2017 in Geneva. With more than 25 million euros collected since 2005, ONLY WATCH, under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco and at the initiative of Luc Pettavino, President of the Association Monégasque contre les Myopathies, is the premier international watchmaking charity event.
