Swiss watch brand Hublot has become the Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of the prestigious Chelsea Football Club. They are the reigning English Premier League champions, and one of the most successful clubs in England. They are also part of the very small circle of clubs, along with Ajax Amsterdam, Bayern Munich and Juventus – all 3 Hublot partners – to have won all 3 European cups.
The partnership was announced following the first league game of the new season at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, and will see Hublot develop a visible presence in the stadium on the LED score display screens, as well as through the numerous clocks installed in key areas around the site. It is an honour and a privilege for the Swiss watch brand to team up with this club boasting such a great record of success. There is much more to link Hublot and Chelsea than the fact that they are both among the elite in their fields. They share the same values: an authentic passion in their respective fields, commitment to perfection and technical precision. Chelsea FC plays at Stamford Bridge, and the team is managed by José Mourinho, who has been a Hublot Ambassador since 2014.
