Calling all football fanatics — the dream team you've always envisioned is now a reality, and they're heralding the start of this year's glorious UEFA Euro. Legends and rivals of the field, Pelé and Maradona have come together with Hublot in a never before seen line-up for a match that'll go down in history.
The inauguration of many firsts, Pelé and Maradona, as well as 10 other celebrated players will don the same colours under Hublot's banner as they face-off in a classic friendly match (though 'friendly' might be relative, what with names like Ferdinand, Hierro, Dida, Materazzi, Trezeguet and Seedorf) in the heart of the Palais Royal in France, this year's UEFA Euro host country. As the official watch brand for the European Football Championships, it's only fitting that Hublot has dedicated a unique timepiece to the sport.
Symbolising the passion and commitment to football, the Big Bang Unico Retrograde Chronograph UEFA Euro 2016 is an emblematic watch brimming with the charisma and strength of this singular sport. Bedecked in the colours of France, this distinct watch is a testament to Hublot's partnership with the UEFA Euro championships since 2006 and their enthusiasm for the game. Specifically crafted for the football universe, this haute horlogerie piece times the halves and added time to indicate the actual time, elapsed time and current match period — handily displayed on the 45mm dial with defined markers.
Fuelling this wrist icon is the house's manufacture Unico Hub1261 bi-retrograde movement with automatic winding, a central chronograph and column wheel with a 72-hour power reserve to keep you in sync while you catch all the prime matches. Encapsulated by an anti-reflective sapphire glass back upon which the Euro 2016 logo proudly sits, football fans will be psyched to know that the Big Bang Unico Retrograde Chronograph UEFA Euro 2016 is further equipped with a 'one-click' interchangeable strap system.
