HUBLOT - appointed Official Watch of UEFA EURO 2012TM - unveils in Warsaw the two official limited editions “UEFA EURO 2012TM watches”
As the Official Watch of the UEFA EURO 2012TM, and also present on the referee board of the 14th UEFA European Football Championship, Hublot held a private party in Warsaw to unveil the two King Power UEFA EURO 2012TM watches, one made from titanium and ceramic featuring the red of the Polish flag (limited edition of only 500 pieces) and the other one made from King Gold and ceramic featuring the blue of the Ukrainian flag (limited to 250 pieces).
With the presence of Oceana – German-American pop sensation who has had a N°1 single in both co-host nations and selected by UEFA to create the Official Song for UEFA EURO 2012TM - who performed the song showcasing next summer’s much awaited tournament, the evening took place on the 19th of April at the exclusive “Na Zielnej” restaurant with a large number of VVIP clients and members of the Euro Club Prestige, all of whom were delighted to catch the first glimpse of this new iconic model.
This King Power chronograph, 48 mm in diameter, with elegant sporty lines, was specially created for the UEFA EURO 2012TM tournament and includes a 45-minute counter at 9 o'clock amongst its special features, indicating the duration of half a football match as a nod to the football world. The official UEFA logo is featured on the watch's sapphire crystal case-back, surrounded by a graphic representation of a football, inspired by the competition's official logo.
Hublot started out as a trailblazer in 2006, as the first luxury brand to get involved as a partner of football, and has continued to develop its commitment to the sport: Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of the FIFATM World Cup, Official Timekeeper for Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Ajax Amsterdam... These privileged relations have given rise to a host of synergies and to a high level of creativity, providing Hublot with global visibility.
