Ahead of the highly-anticipated 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, Hublot unveils a new Big Bang model created to commemorate the world’s most popular sporting event. The Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is a connected watch with a new “timeline” function that will take fans right into the heart of the action – even before it begins.

For the fourth consecutive edition, Hublot will time all 64 matches of the FIFA World Cup, including this year’s final in Lusail Stadium in Doha on December 18. Fans of the most watched sports event (up to one billion viewers) can catch the Big Bang e on the wrists of all 129 official referees.

“We’ve waited four years – the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is coming! Hublot has always been ‘unique, first, different’, becoming the first Fine Watchmaking brand in football in 2006,” said Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO. “Today, Hublot is the first name in football timekeeping. For this year’s tournament, we wanted to do something that expresses our belief in a free, diverse and unified world in a new and memorable way. Football is the world’s game and has a unique power to carry a message of hope to every corner of the Earth, connecting us and showcasing everything that brings us together. Passion, fairness, family. We’re so proud to be working with Mira Mikati and our Hublot Ambassadors and Friends of the Brand to tell this story. We’re also thrilled to be the Official Timekeeper of the FIFA World Cup for a fourth time, going back to the South Africa tournament of 2010. We are so excited for this year’s festival of football to begin and wish every participating team the very best of luck. Hublot Loves Football! ”

The Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 is the highest performing and exciting Big Bang e to date. From the countdown, to the climax of the tournament, the FIFA World Cup Final, Hublot will be at the heart of the action. With 15 minutes to go before kickoff of each match, including the opening match between Qatar and Ecuador on November 20, the watch will deliver team lineups and player profiles so the wearer can take full advantage of the ins and outs of the tournament from the comfort of their wrist.

Once a game kicks off, the watch will automatically enter “match mode” and activate “timeline,” a feature created exclusively for this watch that will help fans capture the most memorable and most important moments in soccer.

At the outer edge of the dial there will be a scale split into five sections, indicating the first and second halves, additional time allowed in each half, and half time. If a goal is scored, the watch will show a match event animation mentioning the player’s name, and a soccer ball will appear at the appropriate minute mark on the scale. The same thing happens if there is a yellow card, a red card or a penalty.

If a match goes beyond normal time, the watch display will automatically switch into extra time mode, and then again into shootout mode, in the event a match goes to penalties. Each penalty is recorded by a soccer ball with a green or red outline to indicate whether or not the attempt was successful. A final “match period animation” shows when the game is over, and the final score.

At any point during a game, the wearer can replay these events by scrolling around the dial using the watch’s crown. After five seconds of inactivity, the watch automatically switches into “low consumption mode” to save battery. This practical and interactive functionality is completely exclusive to the Big Bang e FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
