Hublot and Diego Armando Maradona's Partnership

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 Hublot’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 – the Big Bang Maradona.

Hublot's Pre Bezel 2010

GOLD KING POWER TOURBILLON GMT and BIG BANG STEEL TUTTI FRUTTI ROSE


The King Power TOURBILLON GMT is the first Hublot Tourbillon watch to feature a dual time zone indicator. The two-colour dial is set in the 2 o'clock position to allow the traveller to see the time in the place of his or her choice. The King Power Tourbillon GMT has another special feature at 9 o'clock: its Retrograde Date.
The gold colour of this watch is completely unique. It is the result of a newly developed,
rarified alloy made especially for this timepiece. The alloy is known as "King Gold", and is obtained primarily by adding 5% platinum, distinguishing it from all other currently known alloys and making it all the more precious. The delicacy of its microstructure ensures that the alloy is perfectly stable, which means durable quality and a long-lasting intense red colour. Its enduring, intense red and toughness create a unique aesthetic.

BIG BANG STEEL TUTTI FRUTTI ROSE
The new Big Bang Tutti Frutti features fine mother of pearl which gives it a particular elegance. This is emphasised by its satin-finished case surrounded by pink sapphires, and the alligator bracelet which accentuates its distinguished allure. An undeniably exquisite watch, it exudes a sense of masterful restraint.
