Football fans: Hublot has released a limited edition Premier League timepiece
The watch is fashioned in purple, the official Premier League colour, and is limited to just 200 pieces worldwide. You’ll also be notified of match kick-off times.
With state-of-the-art materials and contemporary design, Hublot’s Big Bang series has proven to be a hit among watch enthusiasts. Now, the watchmaker has introduced a new version, one that’s specially catered to football fans – in particular, fans of the English Premier League (EPL).
Celebrating its partnership with the EPL, Hublot has unveiled a limited edition version of its Big Bang e connected smartwatch. The Big Bang e Premier League features a new dial and a new strap in purple.
Admittedly, purple is quite an odd colour choice, but it’s the official Premier League colour. If you’re not a fan of the hue, however, the strap can be quickly changed, thanks to Hublot’s One Click strap-change system. The digital face can be switched out as well.
The 200-piece limited-edition watch has a lightweight case in satin finish and polished titanium. It’s based on the Hublot Big Bang e connected watch launched in 2020, with a number of features tailored to the EPL fan experience.
It’s powered by Wear OS by Google and comes with the exclusive Hublot Loves Football Premier League app. What the app does is provide users with animated notifications to alert them to Premier League match kick-off times (15 minutes before the game starts), goals, penalties, substitutions, yellow and red cards, and time added.
The dial can be set to display the time in analogue or digital, but when a match begins, it automatically switches to Match Mode. The app will also show team line-ups and VAR decisions. For non-football fans, the latter is a Video Assistant Referee who watches the match via a number of screens and can view slow-motion replays, enabling them to advise the on-field referee.
When a match is over, the watch will also begin a countdown to the next fixture. If there are two games taking place at the same time, users can switch between them with a simple screen tap.
“In these challenging times, football continues to be a source of much-needed joy for fans all over the world. Hublot loves football and continues to partner with the game’s greatest competitions,” said Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho, head coach of football club Tottenham Hotspur, commented, “As a Hublot ambassador for many years, I can say that I am extremely proud to wear this magnificent watch that will bring fans of our league closer to the game. I’m even more proud to see Hublot and the Premier League come together – the best watchmaker in the world, and the best league in the world.”
If you'd like to get your hands on the timepiece, it will set you back by S$7,100.
