Hublot Creates Watch to Raise Money for Saving Rhinos

Hublot Creates Watch to Raise Money in Hopes to Save Rhinos

November 11, 2019 by Mike Espindle

Swiss watchmaker Hublot reinforces its dedication to the environment and wildlife through a new partnership with Save Our Rhino Africa/India (sorai.com.au). The organization, led by former cricket star Kevin Pietersen, is committed to protecting rhinos, which face global extinction. “There are around 28,000 rhinos remaining worldwide—23 times fewer than there are African elephants!” Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe passionately explains after his recent return from visiting with the organization in South Africa. “If Hublot can play a role in raising awareness,” he says, “then I would be delighted.” To benefit the cause, the watchmaker produced a special-edition 45 mm Big Bang Unico SORAI timepiece, with a large portion of the proceeds going to SORAI-approved agencies that conduct vital relief and protection efforts. The Big Bang Unico is rendered in a striking safari-style micro blasted beige ceramic case with a rugged camo rubber strap and is a full-fledged in-house-designed chronograph with a legendary HUB1242 Unico movement and a 72-hour power reserve. Now, lucky owners of the watch, which is limited to only 100 versions, will be able to wear their dedication to wildlife protection proudly on their wrists. $24,100, hublot.com
