Hublot celebrates Champions League draw with new Big Bang e


On the day the draw for the group stage of this season’s competition took place, Hublot has introduced the Big Bang e UEFA Champions League, and a Hublot Loves Football UEFA Champions League app.

Commenting on the launch, Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot said: “Because of COVID-19, this has been a very difficult year for everybody, full of disruption. But the start of the UEFA Champions League gives football fans all over the world something to be excited about. Hublot is really proud to be working with UEFA and to be involved in this wonderful competition.

“We’ve worked hard to create these special watches for fans, and we know they will make the UEFA Champions League experience even more memorable.”


The new watch is based on the Hublot Big Bang e connected watch which launched earlier this year, with a number of additional features that enrich the UEFA Champions League fan experience.

The 500-piece limited edition’s lightweight ceramic case and rubber bracelet are both in UEFA Champions League core blue.

Owners will have various dials to choose from, downloadable from the Hublot Store. There are blue digital and analogue options, and a special color-dial that can be customised to match one of the participating team’s kit colours.

The watch is powered by Wear OS by GoogleTM and comes loaded with the new Hublot Loves Football UEFA Champions League app.

The user will get notifications to alert them to kick-off times (15 minutes before the game starts), goals, penalty, substitutions, yellow and red cards and time added on.

The app will also show team line-ups and VAR decisions, and then when it signals that the game is over, it will also 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. The app will be also available to existing owners of the Hublot Big Bang e.

Hublot will also be equipping UEFA Champions League referees with a special version of the watch, which will not be made commercially available.

Cast in a super-lightweight composite, it will be lighter than the ceramic version.

The new watch will also have additional technology designed to help the referee, including goal-line technology that signals to the referee when the whole of the ball has crossed the whole of the line.

Hublot was the first Swiss watch brand and first luxury brand to get involved in football, and the first Swiss watch brand to create a luxury connected football watch for the 2018 FIFA Football World Cup in Russia.
