At 6 o’clock, a chronograph is situated and is decorated with a touch of green symbolizing the the colors on the flag of Bolt’s beloved home: Jamaica. A date window is located at 4.30.
The King Power Usain Bolt watch is cast in a 48mm micro-blasted ceramic and is predominantly black, with gold-Bolt’s own color and that of his lucky fetish shoes. 2N gold powder coating is featured on the flange, while the strap is made from exactly the same gold-colored synthetic leather as his shoes. That is integrated with black rubber which happens to be Hublot signature, providing comfort, strength and durability. The watch has a movement of Calibre HUB4100 and will be made in a limited edition of only 250 pieces.
