The purported “wonderful diversion” is the thing that we Americans call soccer and what almost …
The young Swiss watchmaker has teamed up with the famous Greengo night club (Gstaad, Switzerland) to offer this Hublot Big Bang Greengo Bang replica (Ref. 301.CI.1170.GR.GGG10) automatic chronograph watch.
The Greengo Bang is animated by the same HUB 4100 automatic movement that is ticking inside the Hublot Big Bang Gold model that we have briefly reviewed two years ago.
The watch is offered in a standard 44.50 mm Big Bang case made of microblasted black ceramic with the bezel made of the same material, which is both durable and lightweight.
Its crown and chronograph push-pieces are equipped with green rubber inserts, while the applied hour indexes and hands come treated with green Superluminova.
The movement is slightly modified, though, to be more in line with the overall look of the watch.
Its mainplate, for example, is sandblasted and rhodium-plated, while the winding rotor is made of tungsten with black PVD treated dimpled surface.
To further reiterate its theme, the watch features lots of green elements.
The club’s logo, which is located at 8 o’clock, is printed in orange.
By the way, the placement of the logo is quite symbolic. The Hublot Big Bang Chronograph copy watch celebrates the 40 year’s anniversary of the club and is delivered in a limited edition of 40 pieces. And the logo, as you may have already noticed, points at the 40 minutes mark on the minute track.
