On May 28, 2016, two teams from the same country and the same city competed for the supreme honor of the European Club in Milan, Italy. In the end, Real Madrid won a penalty kick against Atletico Madrid. As the official Champions League partner, Hublot congratulates Real Madrid on winning the 11th Champions League trophy in team history. This game also confirmed and further consolidated the unique position of Hublot in the world of football.
Today’s famous Hublot chronographs also appear on the court, they are used by fourth officials to indicate stoppage time and player replacement information. Since it was first introduced at the 2008 European Cup, Hublot timepieces have become a basic feature of major football events. Hublot chronographs are unique in appearance and can be custom designed according to the style of each game.
To celebrate the vibrant partnership with the UEFA Champions League, Hublot is proud to launch the new BigBangUnico retrograde chronograph watch, the official watch authorized by the event. The new watch is equipped with Hublot’s legendary Unico retrograde chronograph movement, limited to 100 pieces. The watch is designed in the classic color of the UEFA Champions League Midnight Blue. It has a black ceramic case with a diameter of 45 mm. The blue alligator leather is lined with natural rubber and white stitching.
Mechanical chronograph watch only for football chronograph
The HUB1261 movement is clearly visible through the sapphire case back, which is engraved with the UEFA Champions League ™ logo. The UNICO self-produced movement is equipped with a patented self-winding double retrograde module, which makes it easy to perform football game timing. The watch can achieve 45 minutes at half time, including overtime, for a total of 60 minutes. The central chronograph window has seconds and minutes hands that slide in an arc between the 10 and 2 o’clock positions. The 2 o’clock position button activates the double-reverse mechanism, which moves the second hand to the 60-second mark, then quickly jumps back to 0 to continue counting, and the minute hand slides to record the corresponding time. The central window shows the stage in progress (1—first half, 1/2 halftime break, 2—second half, END—end of game). The local time is displayed in the window at 6 o’clock.
