Swiss watchmaker Hublot and Premier League champion Chelsea FC have teamed up today to celebrate the second chapter of their incredible story. Always blue, but now in a Big Bang! After the successful launch of the Classic Fusion Chronograph Chelsea FC in 2016, the Big Bang Chelsea FC has been revealed today at the home of “The Blues”’, Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea Football Club is one of the world’s most iconic football clubs. The current Premier League champions, Chelsea were UEFA Champions League winners in 2012, following that success by lifting the UEFA Europa League trophy in 2013. Founded in 1905, Chelsea is London’s most central football club, based at the iconic 42,000-capacity Stamford Bridge Stadium.
The official presentation of the Big Bang Chelsea FC took place at Stamford Bridge in the presence of Michel Pont, Hublot Football Consultant and former Assistant Coach of the Swiss National Football Team, Philippe Tardivel, Hublot Marketing Director, Benoit Lecigne, Hublot Brand Director for the UK, France, Belux, Eastern Europe and Scandinavia and Chris Townsend, Commercial Director of Chelsea FC.
Welcomed by a round of applause, Chelsea FC star players Alvaro Morata, David Luiz, Danny Drinkwater and Cesc Fàbregas made an entrance on the pitch with their home jerseys.
The Big Bang Chelsea FC is the second watch created by Hublot in partnership with Chelsea FC and a tribute to “The Blues”, the Chelsea FC players. Limited to 200 pieces, it features a 44mm stainless steel case and a bezel made of carbon fibre and blue Texalium. Its blue sunray dial includes three counters at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, the latter being proudly engraved with “SW6”, Fulham postcode where Stamford Bridge is located.
