The Premier Watchmaker Brings Together Everything that is Football on a Wristwatch
Available from 1st of May this year at Hublot sales outlets, The Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ is the Official FIFA Wristwatch. Especially designed for the competition, the watch features an intrinsically unique series of ‘fan’ dials. Representing the colours of each participant nation, these ‘fan’ dials allow the watch’s wearer to set his supporting nation’s national colours as the dial’s background, definitely redefining the concept of ‘world cup football fever’ in the 21st century.
Hublot has created The Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ as a response to a specific request put forward by FIFA. FIFA, it seems, required a customized watch for its world cup referees; to accompany them on the pitches during the matches, to assist them as well as keep them updated on the go. With The Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ it seems Hublot has hit FIFA’s brief precisely and even gone beyond it too. For the FIFA referee, design features in The Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ such as displays on the watch dial of match statistics such as the score, number of cards, names of goal-scorers, player substitutions and match time during an ongoing match will be extremely useful in enhancing the effectivity of the referees’ performance. Other design features such as match notifications 15 minutes before kick-off, an updated list of yellow and red cards, player changes and instant vibrating displays of the word GOAL every time a goal is scored will be enthusiastic design features not only for the FIFA referee but also the starter as well as die-hard football fan as well.
The Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ has all the attributes of the iconic Hublot Big Bang. Cut out of titanium, its bezel is decorated with 6 H-shaped screws, its Kevlar insert. The display on this watch’s analogue dial mirrors the same aesthetics as that of its automatic counterparts. This watch’s 49mm case and its motor is driven by technology connected to digital intelligence are both first-time design innovations in the horology world.
The only downside to this watch is that due to its limited edition status The Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ will be available only in a limited 2018 pieces.
