It’s no secret that world champion Floyd “Money” Mayweather has a penchant for luxury watches. In fact, prior to his high-profile showdown with MMA champion Conor McGregor last year, we broke down his extensive collection of multi-million dollar ice-cold watches. As many expected, Mayweather defeated McGregor in that Las Vegas fight, setting his 50-0 record.
The billionaire boxer has now turned his passion for fine watchmaking into a business venture, partnering with Hublot to launch a limited edition Big Bang Unico TMT watch. Let’s get into this Mayweather and Hublot showdown.
Floyd Mayweather Hublot Big Bang Unico TMT X 2
Along with the watchmaking giant’s other luxury watches, Hublot is warming up for Baselworld. While Hublot and Mayweather have been building a relationship since 2015, the two Hublot Big Bang Unico TMT watches are the first watches the brand has created in honor of the boxer. As expected, the watches are as gorgeous as the Hublot shorts that inspired the design of Mayweather.
The Hublot Big Bang Unico TMT Carbon Gold Chronograph, limited to 100 pieces, has a 45 mm case made of a carbon composite material in which gold dust has been manually inserted into the carbon layer. The result is a unique gold-speckled black carbon material that almost looks like a peculiar camouflage pattern. To match the gold and black details of the case, the skeleton dial is adorned with the TMT logo – “The Money Team” – a gold applique, as well as gold hands, gold gold hands, gold hour markers and a gold encircled subdial. The black and gold are paired with a black calfskin strap adorned with python skin and gold studs. Turn the watch over and you’ll see Mayweather’s mantra: “The best ever,” in addition to his signature, in bold letters TBE on the sapphire caseback.
Accompanying the carbon gold version is the even more luxurious Hublot Big Bang Unico TMT Gold Jewel, this time limited to 10 pieces. 45 mm case is entirely made of 18-carat gold and set with 176 diamonds. The diamond-set bezel includes 48 baguette-cut diamonds, while the skeleton dial glistens with diamonds on the subdials, hour-markers and the TMT logo.
Mayweather fan’s watch
Commenting on the new Hublot watch that bears his name, Mayweather said: “Everyone knows that I’m obsessed with mechanical beauty, especially shiny watches. So I’m really proud to see the TMT x Hublot letters shining on my watch. This timepiece means a lot to me, it symbolizes my career, my undefeated 50-0 record and my last fight to make history!”
Fans of the champion will be happy to know that each watch comes with a boxing glove signed by the money man himself.
