Usain “Lightning” Bolt, the world’s fastest man, has a Swiss watch named in honor of him and featuring his image. Hublot, for whom he is an ambassador, has developed a model in close consultation with the three-time Olympic champion. The timepiece is named the King Power Usain Bolt.
“It’s perfectly natural to be associated with the fastest man, not just on the planet, but the fastest since the Big Bang,” said Jean-Claude Biver, Hublot chairman.
The President of AdF PR International Rui ALVIM de FARIA said that he was proud that after he brought Usain Bolt to the world of Hublot a few years ago, the world olympic champion is now an ambassador for the prestigious watch brand and has this beautifull limited piece in his honour.
Bolt’s silhouette pose in an anthracite grey on a black background is located at 9 o’clock in the center of the movement’s small seconds counter.
The chronograph movement features a central 60-second hand and a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock. A 12-hour chronograph counter sits at 6 o’clock and is decorated with a touch of green in a nod to the colors on the Jamaican flag. A date window at 4:30 completes the design.
The 48 mm-diameter watch, in micro-blasted ceramic, is predominantly black, with gold—Bolt’s personal color and that of his lucky running shoes.
