Hublot has been associated with the football for 10 years now. The brand has been closely associated with many football legends and also sponsors iconic soccer clubs like Ajax, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus and Paris SaintGermain. The brand also holds the titles such as the Official Watch for the European Championship, Official Timekeeper for the World Cup and “Official Licensed Watch” for the Champions League and Europa League. To cement its love for football, the Swiss watchmaker has also created a special watch dedicated to the most popular sport in the world: the Big Bang Unico Retrograde Chronograph.
The “Hublot Loves Football” campaign returned once again to Mexico to commemorate Club América’s 100 years of greatness. Jean-Claude Biver (President of LVMH Group Watch Division and Hublot Chairman), and Ricardo Guadalupe (Hublot CEO) were welcomed by Luis Peyrelongue to celebrate football.
During a special function Hublot has unvelied two special edition timepieces: Big Bang Unico Retrograde Chronograph Special Club América Edition (limited to 100 numbered models) and the Big Bang Chronograph Special Club América Edition (limited to 100 numbered models) and available to buy exclusively at Peyrelongue Chronos.
When the presentation had concluded, Jean-Claude Biver was in charge of presenting Televisa CEO, Mr Emilio Azcárraga Jean, with a unique gold edition to commemorate the team’s centenary and the alliance with the Swiss watchmaking brand.
