Hublot’s new limited-edition Big Bang e UEFA Champions League Gen3, is the exclusive wristwear of the most-watched annual sporting event in the world. As it switches on, the UEFA Champions League logo appears, while the competition app enables the wearer to follow the action live. The watch offers an easy, efficient and simple way to stay connected to the game no matter where the wearer is.
The Hublot and UEFA Champions League partnership is in its eighth year, and is part of the watchmaker’s Hublot Loves Football campaign. The high-profile partnership with UEFA has included the UEFA EURO for the last four competitions (2008, 2012, 2016, 2020) and the UEFA Champions League since 2015. Created 68 years ago and rebranded the UEFA Champions League in 1992, the 2023/24 season has just begun, and features 125 matches.
Big Bang e UEFA Champions League Gen3 is a 200-piece limited edition and showcases the UEFA Champions League’s distinctive blue colour in Hublot’s ceramic. Hublot’s newest Big Bang for the digital era represents its third generation, and comes five years after the launch of Hublot’s first connected watch.
The improved, large high-definition screen grants access to every single moment of the match via the UEFA Champions League dial, which automatically enters “match mode” once the match begins. A countdown will start 15 minutes before kick-off, providing information on the lineups.
During the course of the match, the wearer can keep track of half-times, additional time, goals scored with the official adidas matchball animation, the scorer’s name, yellow and red cards and goal attempts. The watch follows the entire match right through to the final whistle. If any action has been missed, the wearer can replay any of the key moments using the “replay” mode and scrolling through with the crown.
The 44mm micro-blasted and polished blue ceramic case is water-resistant to 3 ATM. It houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon WearTM 4100+ processor and features eight different sensors and GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Heart Rate Monitor and NFC payment connectivity. It is compatible with both Google Android and Apple iOS operating systems. The watch comes with an all-day battery life with a two-hour charging time from empty to full.
