After announcing their historic partnership last year, luxury Swiss watchmaker Hublot and Chelsea Football Club teamed up to launch their first collaborative timepiece, the Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Chelsea.
The official presentation of the new piece took place at the Premier League Champion’s Surrey training base with Ricardo Guadalupe CEO of Hublot and Christian Purslow, Managing Director of Chelsea FC. Chelsea players Nemanja Matic, Cesc Fàbregas, Eden Hazard, Pedro and Bertrand Traoré led guests in a test of precision with a special football shooting challenge.
According to Hublot, the new timepiece perfectly encapsulates the quality, tradition and pursuit of excellence that flows through both organizations. It features a 45mm satin-finished and polished titanium case and bezel, and is powered by calibre HUB1143, an automatic chronograph movement that provides the watch with twin counters at 3 and 9 o’clock, a date window at 6 o’clock and a 42- hour power reserve. The decorated movement can be seen through the watch’s sapphire case back. The Chelsea lion logo is situated at 12’o clock and also on the crystal case back. The dial is blue, inspired by Chelsea colours, and has a sunray satin finish and a hand-applied Chelsea FC Lion appliqué at 12 o’clock.
Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot’s CEO commented: ‘Our partnership with Chelsea these last six months has been hugely fruitful and it has been a source of great excitement to see these two great names coming together. The Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Chelsea is the perfect representation of these two legendary names and the ideal watch for this stylish club, which is based in the world’s most stylish city. We wish Chelsea FC all the best for the remaining weeks of the 2015-16 season. Hublot loves football!’
The Hublot CFC Watch will be limited to 200 pieces.
