Official timekeeper of the Premier League, Hublot unveiled the Big Bang e Premier League.
This 200-piece limited edition watch has a lightweight case in satin finished and polished titanium. It is based on the Hublot Big Bang e connected watch launched in 2020, with a number of additional features tailored to the Premier League fan experience.
The strap, which is available in the Premier League’s signature purple, can be quickly changed thanks to the One Click system. Every strap comes with a microblasted black ceramic buckle. Owners will be able to change the look of the watch easily by choosing rubber strap colours and dial configurations.
The watch, powered by Wear OS by Google, comes with the exclusive “Hublot Loves Football Premier League” app. This provides users with animated notifications to alert them to Premier League match kick off times, goals, penalties, substitutions, yellow and red cards, and time added on. The dial can be set to display the time using digital or analogue displays and when a match starts the watch automatically switches to “match mode”.
The app will also show team line-ups and VAR decisions. When it signals a match is over, it will begin a countdown to the next fixture. If there are two games taking place at the same time, users will be able to switch between them with a simple screen tap.
Hublot will be equipping Premier League referees with a special version of the watch, which will not be commercially available. Cast in a super lightweight composite, it will be even lighter than the ceramic version. It will also have additional functions, including goal line technology that signals to the referee when the whole of the ball has crossed the line.
The Premier League is the most followed championship in the world. More than one billion homes in 188 countries tune in to watch the league’s 20 teams contest 380 matches across a season.
