Hublot has entered into a new partnership with international soccer star and World Cup winner, Kylian Mbappé.
In making the announcement, Hublot hosted a ‘fast forward to the future’ event where Mbappé joined existing brand ambassador, Pelé, who has been with the watchmaker since 2013.
The occasion saw Pelé present Mbappé the Hublot watch that had been designed in collaboration with the footballing legend, a Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Pelé Special Piece, re-imagined especially for the encounter.
The back of this timepiece features Pelé’s logo on the case-back, as well as the date 02.04.2019 and the place, Paris.
Mbappé then presented Pelé with a Big Bang Unico Titanium which features the French flag on its strap, the KM logo on the case-back, and the same note of the date and place as Pelé’s version.
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO at Hublot, commented: “The generosity of Pelé and Kylian can be seen in their eyes, as can their love of football. This flame, this inextinguishable strength, is what drives these two great champions.”
He added: “They are inspiring new generations of footballers and writing the history of football, so it was perfectly natural to bring them together. Having them in our family is a great source of pride and pleasure, because before being football stars, they are above all great men who command respect.
Mbappé becomes the the only current player among Hublot’s Football ambassadors.
The brand confirmed he will play a decisive role in its communications.
