Hublot has released the official watch of this summer’s ICC Cricket World Cup in England and Wales.
The launch of the limited-edition Classic Fusion Chronograph ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 also marks Hublot’s role as official timekeeper at the competition.
The watch is the second cricket timepiece created by Hublot, the first produced in limited series for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
The new watch has grey and red detailing in the dial, a satin-finished and polished ceramic bezel and comes with a leather and rubber strap.
Hands of the twin counters for the chronograph minutes and small seconds are shaped like cricket bats while the triple appliqué hour marker at 12 o’clock mirrors three wooden stumps.
The sapphire case back is decorated with the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 logo.
The 45mm satin-finished and polished titanium case houses HUB1155, a skeletonised automatic chronograph calibre with a date at 6 o’clock.
Only 100 pieces will be made.
At Baselworld, Hublot also announced Kevin Pietersen as a new Friend of the Brand.
He joins Australian cricketing legend Michael Clarke Indian limited overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma as a part of the Hublot team.
In February, Hublot also announced former England Ashes-winning captain and international cricket commentator Michael Vaughan as a Friend of the Brand.
