Blues launch Hublot's new Big Bang watch
News Thu 2 Nov 2017
Four Chelsea players were at Stamford Bridge on Thursday to help unveil the brand new Hublot Big Bang Chelsea FC watch.
The watch, which was unveiled on a huge 12-metre banner at the Bridge, is limited to 200 pieces and features a 44mm stainless steel case and a bezel made of carbon fibre and blue Texalium. Its blue sunray dial includes three counters at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, the latter being engraved with SW6, the London postcode where Stamford Bridge is located. The Chelsea lion logo is situated both at 12 o’clock and on the case.
After unveiling the Big Bang, the four Chelsea players met with specially invited guests and took part in a table football tournament. It was the Brazilian who came out on top, with David Luiz earning his team partner two hospitality tickets to a Chelsea home game.
Commenting on the day, Chris Townsend OBE, commercial director of Chelsea FC, added: ‘We are delighted to be unveiling our second Chelsea watch design with Hublot, here at Stamford Bridge in the heart of London. The design is exquisite and, like our partnership, we are very proud of this collaboration. Hublot continues to lead the way in their industry and are a valued partner for Chelsea FC. We are extremely grateful for their support and vision.’
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, added: ‘Today at Stamford Bridge, we demonstrated that our partnership with Chelsea FC is stronger than ever. The Hublot Big Bang Chelsea FC reminds us of the great history of the club, highlighted by Hublot’s audacious design and refined mechanics. We wish Chelsea FC all the best for the 2017/18 Premier League season and the UEFA Champions League.’
