For nearly a decade, the Swiss watchmaker has been leaving an indelible mark on the UEFA Europa League pitch as the Official Licensed Watch. In collaboration with the European football governing body, Hublot introduces the Classic Fusion Chronograph UEFA Europa League Ceramic, the second piece that proudly boasts the championship’s colors and is produced in a limited edition of only 100 pieces. Meticulously crafted from a lightweight and ultra-tough material that is impervious to stains and scratches (except for diamond), this piece is truly a sight to behold. As the seconds hand approaches 3 o’clock, the silver and orange hands that signify strength and endurance perfectly mirror the hues of the trophy, accentuated by the black backdrop of the 42mm dial and case. With the HUB1153 self-winding chronograph movement ticking away inside, this exceptional timepiece is mounted on an unalterable, lined rubber strap. In 2015, Hublot partnered with UEFA to establish this relationship for both the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League tournaments. In 2019, the partnership was extended to all international and club competitions for both men’s and women’s football. Today, the Hublot 4th official board is wielded by the fourth referee, and the eyes of spectators follow its every move, tracking added time and player substitutions in this prestigious event.
