An un­com­pro­mis­ing com­mit­ment to foot­ball

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

From its new shop in the heart of the Rus­sian cap­i­tal and un­der the vic­to­ri­ous aura of Pelé the King of foot­ball, Hublot marks the time for all the high­lights of Planet Foot­ball. In the heart of Moscow, Hublot in­au­gu­rated its new store in the his­toric Metropol build­ing. It is no co­in­ci­dence that Hublot chose this pre­cise mo­ment in time. Just 1 year from the FIFA World Cup, and a day from the launch of the FIFA Con­fed­er­a­tions Cup (from June 17th to July 2nd), on Red Square, the World Cup record-holder Pelé placed his win­ning touch on time.

To­gether with Ri­cardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot and Philippe Le Floc’h, CCO of FIFA, he at­tended a rib­bon­cut­ting cer­e­mony to the sound of a whis­tle, sig­nalling once again Hublot’s un­com­pro­mis­ing com­mit­ment to foot­ball. From its sta­tus as “Of­fi­cial FIFA Watch” of the 2018 World Cup, “Of­fi­cial FIFA Time­keeper” of the 2017 Con­fed­er­a­tions Cup and the 2018 World Cup, in­clud­ing a Big Bang watch with straps bear­ing the colours of the 8 na­tions of the Con­fed­er­a­tions Cup, Hublot stamps its com­mit­ment to foot­ball.

In its new 120 square me­tre Metropol shop, Hublot brought its friends to­gether to cel­e­brate the 12 months that sep­a­rate all from the start of the next FIFA World Cup. Along­side the Swiss watch­maker was

foot­ball King Pelé, who at just 17 years of age had 6 goals and 1 World Cup ti­tle to his name. He is an un­ri­valled World Cham­pion, be­ing the only triple win­ner of the tour­na­ment to date.

For its 3rd par­tic­i­pa­tion in the FIFA World Cup, from South Africa and Brazil, Hublot will have the hon­our of time­keep­ing for the most pop­u­lar in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion on Earth. From 14th June to 15th July 2018, Rus­sia will host the 21st FIFA World Cup. Hublot is also the of­fi­cial time­keeper of the FIFA Con­fed­er­a­tions Cup 2017 and is pay­ing trib­ute to the 8 foot­balling na­tions that will com­pete on the pitch by pre­sent­ing a unique se­ries of in­ter­change­able straps in the colours of par­tic­i­pat­ing coun­tries on its em­blem­atic Big Bang Unico model. The watch has an em­blem­atic man­u­fac­tur­ing move­ment, in­cor­po­rat­ing 330 com­po­nents, a fly­back chrono­graph with col­umn wheel on the dial side and two-way au­to­matic wind­ing. On the pitch, the watch­maker will dom­i­nate the game by se­quenc­ing the time, player changes and ex­tra time to the rhythm of its of­fi­cial’s boards in the form of the Big Bang model.

Be­ing a part of the most le­gendary com­pe­ti­tions from FIFA and UEFA, Hublot is a key player in all the matches and all the vic­to­ries. The Cham­pion of Planet Foot­ball will once again be the star watch­maker of the World Cup.
