Big Bang Ref­eree 2018 FIFA World Cup Rus­sia


Want­ing a cus­tomised watch for the ref­er­ees, FIFA asked Hublot to con­ceive the per­fect watch to ac­com­pany them on the pitches dur­ing the matches. Hublot de­signed this con­nected watch, its first, for the foot­balling uni­verse, the Big Bang Ref­eree 2018 FIFA World Cup Rus­sia. It is a unique edi­tion that is limited to 2,018 pieces. It has all the at­tributes of the iconic Big Bang, its em­blem­atic ar­chi­tec­ture cut out of the light­ness of ti­ta­nium, its bezel decorated with 6 H-shaped screws, and its Kevlar in­sert. Even the dis­play on its ana­logue mode dial could pass for the same aes­thetic as that of the au­to­matic mod­els. In terms of size, its 49mm case is what makes the first dif­fer­ence, then its motor, which, for the first time, is driven by tech­nol­ogy con­nected to dig­i­tal in­tel­li­gence. As well as all the func­tions avail­able on the 2,018 num­bered mod­els of the Big Bang Ref­eree 2018 FIFA World Cup Rus­sia, the ref­er­ees' watches will be con­nected to goal-line tech­nol­ogy, an elec­tronic video as­sis­tance sys­tem for ref­er­ee­ing which fol­lows all the tra­jec­to­ries of the ball and de­ter­mines for cer­tain if the ball did or did not en­tirely cross the goal line.
