Hublot Loves Football 1

Swiss watchmaker Hublot’s involvement in this year’s FIFA World Cup is huge, they are the Official Timekeeper and Official Watch for the event. Hublot also worked on additional football related projects with FIFA, one of them is “Hublot Loves Football”. They have roped in top names in football including players, clubs and officials for the project. Legendary name list include Pelé, José Mourinho, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Luiz Felipe Scolari, Falcao, Roy Hodgson, Xherdan Shaqiri, Guangzhou Evergrande FC and Amsterdam’s Ajax.

Object of the project is to showcase unique personalities involved in the beautiful game of football. Exceptional portraits captured by Swiss photographer Fred Merz tell a story of relationship between the ambassador and the Hublot team. For instance Pelé, the King of Football “was photographed on a stair landing in a fashionable Ipanema hotel in Rio revealing his kindness and attesting to a strength and fitness extraordinary for his age.”

World Cup football decorated by Brazilian painter and sculptor Romero Britto takes center stage along with the official FIFA Hublot watches in the project.
