Hublot Big Bang Unico two-way retro chronograph: This is the official watch of this year’s FIFA World Cup. This is also the first Big Bang Unico double retrograde chronograph. Hublot’s engineers and watchmakers were initially inspired to develop a watch movement specifically for the world of football in homage to the prestigious 2014 FIFA World Cup™. Although its official name is “The Hubble Big Bang Official Watch of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™”, it has already been awarded the title of “Football Blast”. It has two versions: the first is the 18K King Gold version with a carbon fiber bezel; secondly, the black ceramic version also has a carbon fiber bezel.
Swiss watch manufacturer Hublot signed an exclusive copyright agreement with FIFA in 2010 to become the official timekeeper of the Football World Cup. The arrangement has now been extended to 2022 and will cover the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the 2018 World Cup in Russia and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. This cooperation between FIFA and Hublot has won widespread publicity for this famous watch brand and made them a household name worldwide.
