Luxury watchmakers Hublot have unveiled a new timepiece for Juventus F.C., the premiere league in Italian soccer. Hublot previously paired with the Turin-based club as their Official Timekeeper and Official Watch, and have now released the King Power Juventus Turin for the Vecchia Signora – the “old lady”, as the club is affectionately known in Italy.
The limited edition King Power timepiece, of which only 200 will be produced, is made from carbon fibre with a 48 mm diameter. The carbon fibre, requested by the club’s management, is ultra-light and extremely impact-resistant, making it perfect for the intense competition on the pitch. At its heart is a HUB4245 chronograph movement with two central chrono hands to ensure easy readability. The wearer can keep track of both hands at a glance; the first indicates the seconds, and the other specially developed hand indicates the time elapsed out of the 45 minutes in each half of the soccer match.
The club’s signature black and white colors dominate the King Power Juventus Turin, with a topside coated in black ruthenium. The minute track, a time counter at 9 o’clock, a date window at 4 o’clock and the Juventus logo at 3 o’clock complete the sapphire dial, which showcases the skeletonised movement. A white leather strap stitched onto black rubber, with a black leather strip in the centre, completes the look.
