Hublot and UEFA 2016

Hublot News & Releases

UEFA Banner

The passion for football for which the Swiss watchmaker Hublot is well-known has inspired a number of premier watches. With the UEFA Euro Championship currently underway, sports fans are in for a contest on a spectacular scale – and Hublot has created a stunning piece in commemoration of the event.

Hublot Official Watch of the UEFA Euro 2016™

The meticulous design of the Unico Chronograph Retrograde UEFA Euro 2016™ endeavours to pay homage to the spectacular sporting event that is the Euros. A red, blue and white colour scheme takes inspiration from the French flag as the host nation. Even the stitching complements this theme; the red and white stitches stand out attractively on a dark blue and black alligator strap.

For those wishing to support their own country, Hublot is also releasing a range of straps which celebrate some of Europe’s most integral football nations. These will include England, Germany, Italy, Spain and of course the Swiss colours.

The piece is powered by Hublot’s in-house developed and manufactured Unico movement – made up of 330 hand-assembled components. This distinguished movement is finished with a chronograph complication and ceramic case. It is simple elegance at its best.

Chelsea FC

Several of the players competing in the Euros are also talented members of Chelsea FC, a club which partners with Hublot in one of their many endeavours to support the sport. The Classic Fusion Chronograph Chelsea piece that has resulted from this partnership is a thing of beauty. It demonstrates the commitment to excellence that the two organisations share.

Limited to only 200 pieces, this watch features a 45mm satin-finished titanium case. The piece is powered by an automatic chronograph movement which provides the watch with twin counters at 3 and 9 o’clock. It also has a 42-hour power reserve. The stunning blue colour scheme celebrates Chelsea’s status as ‘The Blues’, prominently displaying the instantly recognisable Chelsea FC Lion appliqué at 12 o’clock as a final homage to the team.

Juventus

Hublot supports a number of European football clubs and this includes Italian-based Juventus Football Club. Founded in 1897, this is an incredibly talented club, having sent thirteen members to compete in the Euros across various teams! Hublot has created a piece as a testament to the longevity and excellence of this monumental club that stands as one of the most successful teams in the world.

The piece was created in an effort to pursue international growth with Juventus; with this aim, the Hublot King Power Juventus proudly displays the crest of the team on the face of the watch. The 48mm carbon fibre case houses the Juventus skeleton dial, accompanied by a black ceramic and white rubber bezel. The piece is completed with a lavish black and white calfskin strap. It is powered by a self-winding movement with a chronograph function, which has an additional 42-hour power reserve.

FC Bayern München

The partnership between Hublot and FC Bayern München was born of a similar adherence to the “Art of Fusion” – the art of combining traditional values with innovative visions. This creed has seen the team send ten outstanding players to represent their countries in the Euro. The football club and watchmaker have a number of common goals – such as international growth and longevity. Their partnership is founded on the belief that together they can make these goals a reality.

The King Power Bayern München piece announces itself with a prominent 48mm titanium case, with one black and one red rubber pusher, offset by a black ceramic crown. The black, red and blue skeleton dial and black rubber strap take influence from the teams colour scheme to create a stunning aesthetic. It is powered by a calibre HUB 4245 and an automated chronograph movement.
