Swiss watchmaker Hublot has just signed one of the most prestigious agreements in its history as the Official Timekeeper and Official Watch for the next two FIFA World Cup™ in 2010 and 2014.
This is the first time in the history of the FIFA World Cup™ that a watchmaking brand becomes the Official FIFA Timekeeper having presence on the substitution board. To commemorate this substantial agreement, Hublot is now unveiling the official licensed watch of the FIFA World Cup™: a timepiece reflecting the gold of the coveted FIFA World Cup Trophy.
The case, bezel and dial are fashioned from pink gold, with a subtle tone-ontone drawing of the prestigious FIFA World Cup Trophy revealed at 6 o’clock. An illustration of the world’s most prestigious sports price is also engraved on the watch’s solid gold case-back, as a symbol of the alliance between luxury and the world of football.
