The Swiss watchmaker has been the Official Licensed Watch at UEFA Europa League matches for almost a decade. In collaboration with the European football governing body, Hublot has unveiled a limited edition timepiece named the Classic Fusion Chronograph UEFA Europa League Ceramic. This is the second watch produced in championship colours and only 100 pieces have been created.
Made of a lightweight, ultra-tough, and scratch-proof ceramic material, the watch features silver and orange hands representing strength and endurance, against a black 42mm dial and case.
The piece is powered by the HUB1153 self-winding chronograph movement and is mounted on an unalterable, lined rubber strap.
The partnership with UEFA, which began in 2015 for the UEFA Champions League and Europa League tournaments, was extended in 2019 to include all international and club competitions for men’s and women’s football. During matches, the Hublot 4th official board is used by the 4th referee to announce the added time and player substitutions, and the spectators keep an eye on it. It retails at US$13,600 (~S$18,161).
