Hublot unveils official watch of 2014 World Cup in Brazil
Swiss manufacturer Hublot has unveiled today the official watch of the FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 with the King Pelé.
The official timekeeper at the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, Hublot has revealed the event’s official watch: the Big Bang Unico Chrono Bi-Retrograde.
Also known as the “Soccer Bang,” the watch has a bi-retrograde display built around the timing of one half of a soccer match, or 45 minutes. A smaller dial at 6 o’clock shows a traditional clock for keeping time off the field.
Equipped with a self-winding HUB1260 movement, the watch — which is designed more for referees and players than for mere fans — also allows the wearer to time 15-minute increments.
Black with a matte satin finish, the dial of the Big Bang Unico Chrono Bi-Retrograde features yellow and green details, calling to mind the national colors of the 2014 World Cup’s host country.
The minutes retrograde display and hand are yellow, while the seconds retrograde display and hand are green.
This special edition watch comes with a black textured rubber strap and a black titanium PVD folding clasp.
Hublot has introduced two versions of the model: the King Gold 18K, produced in a limited edition of 100 watches, and the black ceramic version, 200 of which were produced.
