Hublot has announced the signing of one of the most prestigious agreements in its history. The brand will serve as the Official Timekeeper and Official Watch for the next two FIFA World Cup events in 2010 and 2014. This is the first time in FIFA World Cup history that a watchmaking brand will serve as the Official FIFA Timekeeper and have a presence on the substitution board.
To commemorate this agreement, Hublot is unveiling the official licensed watch of the FIFA World Cup: a timepiece reflecting the gold of the coveted FIFA World Cup Trophy. The case, bezel and dial are fashioned from 5N pink gold, with a subtle tone-on-tone drawing of the prestigious FIFA World Cup Trophy at 6 o’clock. The Trophy is also engraved on the solid-gold caseback. The 45mm case houses an automatic-winding HUB1112 caliber.
This Classic Fusion model is available in a series of just 100 numbered pieces with an MSRP of $29,500.
