The Big Bang Maradona
Hublot has just signed a partnership with Argentinian football player Diego Armando Maradona. Not only he is well known for being the "player of the 20th century" (because of his exceptional career), but also he is the Argentina's current national team coach. This genius on the pitch is now part of the Hublot family from the moment he was honoured with the Big Bang Maradona.
The partnership between Maradona and the Swiss brand's management team naturally arose from the mutual desire of creating a watch honouring Maradona. Hublot and Maradona, each recognised as an icon in their fields, will link their careers, both marked by passion, excellence and success.
Now Diego Maradona is Hublotâ€™s newest ambassador. The former captain of the Argentina National Team (AFA), honoring this unique partnership with Maradona, who himself is an avid watch collector, the Swiss-base brand designed a commemorative watch â€“ the Big Bang Maradona.
