After the successful launch of the Classic Fusion Chronograph Chelsea FC in 2016, Swiss watchmaker Hublot and Premier League champion Chelsea FC have teamed up create the second horological edition born out of their partnership, the Big Bang Chelsea FC, at the home of “The Blues”’, Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea Football Club is one of the world’s most iconic football clubs. The current Premier League champions, Chelsea were UEFA Champions League winners in 2012, following that success by lifting the UEFA Europa League trophy in 2013. Founded in 1905, Chelsea is London’s most central football club, based at the iconic 42,000-capacity Stamford Bridge Stadium.
The Big Bang Chelsea FC is the second watch created by Hublot in partnership with Chelsea FC and a tribute to “The Blues”, the Chelsea FC players. Limited to 200 pieces, it features a 44mm stainless steel case and a bezel made of carbon fiber and blue Texalium.
Its blue sunray dial includes three counters at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, the latter being proudly engraved with “SW6”, Fulham postcode where Stamford Bridge is located. Powered by a self-winding chronograph, the Big Bang Chelsea FC has a 42-hour power reserve. The Chelsea lion logo is situated both at 12 o’clock and on the case back crystal.
To put the final touches to this all blue look, the strap comes in rubber and blue alligator with a stainless steel deployant buckle clasp.
