Bode Miller, who became the world champion in all disciplines in 2008, is now very delighted to own a Big Bang watch that bears his name. The renowned watch company and the legendary champion entered into a partnership, when Bode Miller visited the manufacture’s ateliers in order to have a photo shoot for the Kjus catalogue. Enchanted by the brand’s advanced technologies and craftsmen’s skills, he came up with the idea of producing his own timepiece.
Jean-Claude Biver, the CEO of Hublot, and Bode Miller, an outstanding skier, quickly found common ground, having realized that they shared the same values. Both men demonstrate a great generosity, which is eloquently proved by their involvement in charity campaigns.
Jean-Claude Biver and Bode Miller decided to donate some of the proceeds, raised from the sale of the Bode Bang watch to the Turtle Ridge Foundation, created by Bode Miller and his family in 2005. It is crucial for both partners to assist those who turned out to be less fortunate in life.
The “Bode Bang” watch comes with a 44.5-mm case, sculptured in sandblasted black ceramic. It is fitted with a bezel, manufactured from the same material and secured by 6 H-shaped steel black PVD-treated screws.
The watch case embraces a white dial, which exposes black nickel applique indices and numerals. It is equipped with faceted matt black hands, as well as a trapezoid exhibition window at 4.30, which displays the date, represented by a shiny black numeral against white background. Protecting the dial is an anti-reflective sapphire crystal, which is marked by Bode Miller’s signature at 9 o’clock.
Inside this intriguing timepiece is the automatic HUB4100 mechanical chronograph movement. The “Bode Bang” watch is 100-meter water-resistant and offers a 42-hour power reserve.
Fitting this model is an adjustable black rubber strap, finished with a steel black PVD-treated clasp. The Hublot watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, has been issued as a limited series of 250 individually numbered items.
