Hublot launches the first watch made to celebrate the dynamic partnership between the world-famous Swiss watchmaker and the iconic English football club Chelsea. The watch will be limited to just 200 pieces.
The new watch is the perfect marriage of the two organisation’s values. Both the iconic Swiss watch company and the globally recognised football club are associated with quality, tradition and the pursuit of excellence in everything they do. For Hublot, that’s creating high-quality, technically flawless watches that communicate an appreciation of stylish design and the finest manufacturing standards; for Chelsea, or ‘The Blues’ as they’re known, it’s playing beautiful, technically precise, high-quality football that will propel them to further success.
Hublot and Chelsea announced a partnership in August 2015 on the first day of the 2015-16 Premier League season. Hublot now has a strong presence at the club’s Stamford Bridge ground, on LED score display screens and pitch-side banners, and through clocks displayed in key areas around the site.
The Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph is the first watch made in partnership between Hublot and Chelsea and will be limited to only 200 fine timepieces. It features a 45mm satin-finished and polished titanium case and bezel, and is powered by calibre HUB1143, an automatic chronograph movement that provides the watch with twin counters at 3 and 9 o’clock, a date window at 6 o’clock and a 42-hour power reserve. The decorated movement can be seen through the watch’s sapphire case back.
The Chelsea lion logo is situated at 12’o clock and also on the crystal from the case back, so that the Chelsea lion is truly close to the heart of the wearer as it literally touches the pulse.
The dial is blue, inspired by Chelsea colours, and has a sunray satin finish and a hand-applied Chelsea FC Lion appliqué at 12 o’clock. The watch is water-resistant to 50 metres (5ATM) and comes on a black leather strap with a blue rubber lining and trim, with a stainless steel deployant buckle clasp.
