José Mario dos Santos Félix Mourinho, better known as José Mourinho, is without doubt the best known football manager on the planet. And with good reason, given that many believe him to be the best football tactician of his generation, winning wherever he goes: Portuguese champion with FC Porto, English champion with Chelsea, Italian champion with Inter Milan and Spanish champion with Real Madrid. A unique list of achievements to which we can add two Champions League victories and an unequalled home record, unbeaten in 150 league matches over eight seasons and 183 cup matches. Add to that his exceptional strategic gifts and a deliberately provocative sense of humour, and the result is someone who deserves his nickname: The Special One.
José Mourinho is currently the manager of Manchester United. He has also been part of the prestigious family of Hublot ambassadors since 2014. To honour José Mourinho, Hublot has created the Big Bang Unico Special One watch in a limited series of 200 pieces.
The dial, with hints of red and black, is skeletonised so as to reveal Hublot’s famous UNICO manufacture flyback chronograph movement, the calibre HUB1242. The movement can also be seen from the back through the transparent sapphire case back and offers a 72-hour power reserve. The rubber-lined alligator strap boasts the same blue shade as the watch, adorned by red top-stitching.
A limited edition of 200 timepieces, the Big Bang Unico Special One is presented in a case worthy of its exclusivity: a box in the same blue shade as the watch itself, enhanced here and there with touches of black and red, sporting José Mourinho’s signature in the window and containing a personalised Moleskine notebook.
