Together, we are committed to our craft, our passions and our family and friends.
Nole’s story started two decades ago, and we stand today to witness his rewriting of tennis history. He turned professional in 2003 and has rewritten tennis history, breaking records, defying the odds, achieving the impossible and overc oming adversity again and again. His unique determination, led him to win his first Grand Slam at the Australian Open in 2008 and he has gone on to dominate the most competitive period in tennis history, elevating the game at every turn. Always, his iron w ill has shone through in his quest to become the greatest player ever to pick up a racquet.
His list of records is incredible. As well as winning 24 Grand Slams, Nole has spent more weeks as world number one than any other male o r female player in histor y, and finished the year as the highest ranked men’s player a record seven times. He has won 38 ATP Masters 1000 titles, also more than any other player in history.
In all, he has won 94 career titles and is one of only eight men to have completed the Career Grand Slam, winning each of the four majors at least once, and one of only four male or female players to complete the Triple Career Grand Slam, winning each of the Slams at least three times.
On the night of his victory, Nole was wearing Hublot’s Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic, the bright yellow ceramic timepiece for which the Hublot Manufacture has achieved the impossible. Although yellow is a primary colour that is abundant in nature, this colour is still difficult, nigh on impossible to reproduce in a material such as ceramic.
Yellow Magic, the name of the new brightly coloured high-tech ceramic created by Hublot which has been predestined since the arrival of its red ceramic in 2018. A unique process, a patented material, entirely developed and produced by the Manufacture’s R&D department and its Metallurgy & Materials laboratory. Four years of development to find the perfect balance of temperature and pressure enabling the ceramic to be sintered without burning the pigments. Hublot has met the challenge of retaining the properties and the colorimetry of the pigments while increasing the wear resistance of this ceramic which is harder than traditional ceramics (1350 HV versus 1200 HV). No more black and white! Thanks to Hublot ceramic is available in all colours – red, blue, beige, green and now yellow! With this perfect fusion of performance and stylish looks, Hublot is continuing to write the story of innovation, by continually reinventing material.
Available in a limited edition of 250 pieces – at the time of its launching, the solar power of its 42-mm case and its bezel shine in the light of this yellow ceramic. In an ultra-invigorating colour palette, the flange, indexes, minute and seconds counters, Arabic numerals and hands are all in this sunny yellow, to highlight the mechanism of the Unico HUB1280 manufacture movement and its column wheel, visible on the dial side through the sapphire crystal. The brightness continues right down to its lined and structured yellow rubber strap.
