Back in 2015, Hublot announced the beginning of a partnership with English football club Chelsea. Founded in 1905, Chelsea FC is one of the world’s most iconic football clubs. Over the last two decades, the English Premier League side has enjoyed its most successful period in history, winning 21 trophies since 1997. Most notable among these are the Champions League trophy in 2012 and UEFA Europa League trophy the year later. Last year we saw the release of the first collaborative watch between Hublot and Chelsea FC, the Classic Fusion Chronograph Chelsea. Now in 2017, the two brands are further establishing their partnership by launching their second collaborative piece – the Big Bang Chelsea FC Limited Edition (ref. 301.SY.7129.LR.CFC17). With its latest timepiece, Hublot is once again strengthening its deep connections with the wonderful world of football.

The new Hublot Big Bang Chelsea FC Limited Edition was officially presented at a special promotional event at  Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge stadium. The event saw the presence of several Hublot executives as well as Chelsea’s Commercial Director Chris Townsend. Together with other VIP guests, they made their way inside the stadium and took their seats behind the home bench. Also present at the event were four Chelsea players: Cesc Fàbregas, Alvaro Morata, Danny Drinkwater and David Luiz. In their home jerseys, the players each dribbled a special Hublot and Chelsea FC ball towards the centre of the pitch where a special plunger had been installed. After a 20-second countdown, the players activated the plunger, revealing a giant 12-meter high banner with an image of the new Hublot Big Bang Chelsea FC Limited Edition.
