For the best part of a decade, the Swiss watch manufacturer has been making its mark on the pitch at UEFA Europa League matches as the Official Licensed Watch. In collaboration with the European football governing body, Hublot presents the Classic Fusion Chronograph UEFA Europa League Ceramic. This second piece to bear the championship’s colours has been produced in a limited edition of 100 pieces. Presented in a lightweight, unalterable, stain-resistant, and ultra-tough material that is scratch-proof except for the diamond, the Ceramic.
As the seconds counter reaches 3 o’clock, the silver and orange hands—symbolising strength and endurance—echo the hues of the trophy, and are set against the black background of the 42 mm dial and case. Driven by the HUB1153 self-winding chronograph movement, the piece is mounted on an unalterable, lined rubber strap.
This partnership with UEFA—which was initially established in 2015 for the two prestigious UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League tournaments—was extended to all its international and club competitions for both men’s and women’s football in 2019. Since then, in the hands of the 4th referee, the eyes of the spectators follow the announcements of added time and player substitutions on the Hublot 4th official board.
