The partnership between Hublot and Manchester United heralds a new Big Bang: the Red Devil Bang, a black ceramic chronograph displaying a 45-minutes counter – the duration of a football match half – especially developed by Hublot for football and Manchester United.
Sporting on its dial the celebrated Red Devil logo, this is a somewhat rebellious watch that honours the colours of the club, whose history is punctuated with victories and memorable dramas.
Within the framework of its partnership with Manchester United, the CEO of Hublot, Jean-Claude Biver, strongly wished to also make a commitment to the “Manchester United Foundation”, an organisation which helps young people through various football related activities.
The Foundation has developed educational programmes in order to promote better social integration and also provides support for sick children. It acts at international as well as local level. Hublot has always been involved in activities in support and defence of children. As Mr Biver says: “The height of luxury is the capacity to share”. Part of the proceeds from the sales of the “Red Devil Bang” watches will thus be donated to the Foundation.
