Hublot is proud to be the Official Timekeeper of Manchester United, the living legend in football.
Hublot made its name 30 years ago when it became the first Swiss watch luxury brand to fuse precious metals with rubber, sparking a revolution in material innovation. In 2004, Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of Hublot and one of the few men to have genuinely left their mark on Swiss watchmaking, gave the brand a great new boost and revolutionized watchmaking with the creation of the multiple award-winning “Big Bang” chronograph. It marked the start of a spectacular success and impressive growth for the brand. Since then, with a new high-tech manufacture on Lake Geneva, Hublot continues to write the story of the Art of Fusion with the combination of innovative materials – magnesium, ceramic, carbon, tantalum, tungsten, titanium – with more traditional materials such as gold, steel and diamonds. Hublot remains true to Swiss watchmaking tradition, enriching it with the visionary creativity of the 21st Century.
As a tribute to its partnership with Manchester United, a Hublot clock tower welcomes visitors and supporters at the main entrance at Old Trafford Stadium.
The Swiss luxury watch brand has also developed three limited editions equipped with a 45-minute chronograph movement especially developed for counting down each half of a football game, and featuring Manchester United’s Red Devils emblem on the dial: the Red Devil Bang I in black ceramic launched in 2008, followed by the Red Devil Bang II in 2009, and in 2011 the King Power Red Devil. This last special edition exists in two versions: 500 numbered pieces for the black ceramic version and 250 pieces for the King Gold version. Perfect
