The Hublot King Power 66 Hodgson is a Limited Edition of 66 pieces to commemorate the year that England won the World Cup.
Paying tribute to Roy Hodgson, the Manager of the England National football team, Hublot has developed this King Power especially for the football fans. This timepiece is equipped with a chronograph movement featuring two chronograph hands positioned in the centre in addition to the hour and minute hands. This makes it easier to read and therefore quicker and more efficient. The wearer can keep track of both hands at a glance; the first indicates the seconds, and the other hand, specially developed when watching a game, indicates the time elapsed out of the 45 minutes in each half.
With a sapphire dial, the movement – here in an Aero Bang version – features an exquisite new skeleton movement to reveal even more of the working parts of the watch and its fine mechanics. The topside retains only the material necessary for it to function. This is coated with black ruthenium for a beautiful overall effect of homogeneity, and clearer reading. A minute track, a time counter at 9 o’clock and a date window at 4 o’clock all feature on the predominantly white and red piece, which is stamped with the famous English flag.
Much attention has been lavished on the King Power case, which is 48 mm diameter in highly shock-resistant black carbon fiber. The moulded black rubber crown made of King Gold is flanked by two push-buttons in red and white rubber.
In a final reference to Roy Hodgson, and adding an attractive touch to the piece, the caseback is engraved with the English victory emblem and has the Manager’s signature. Each watch comes with three inter changeable straps, alligator and rubber, red, white and black with deployant buckle.
