Luxury Swiss watch brand Hublot has now officially joined forces with the World Baseball Softball Confederation as partner and Official Timekeeper of the prestigious 2015 WBSC Premier12TM (08-21 Nov). To mark this milestone, Hublot has launched an exclusive timepiece, the Classic Fusion Chrono Aero "World Baseball Softball Confederation” that is the perfect blend of the baseball culture and spirit for baseball fans. During the press conference, Hublot has presented this timepiece to Mr. Tai-Yuan Kuo, head coach of the Chinese Taipei national baseball team.
At the same time, Hublot also contributed large amount of baseball equipment to the association in the hopes of promoting baseball culture in Taiwan. Hublot continues to contribute to the motto “Hublot Loves Baseball”, after Japanese Baseball player, Mr. Masahiro Tanaka, becoming one of Hublot’s ambassador.
At the 3-o’clock position, the small second auto draws inspiration from the stitches of a baseball, matching it with white calf leather strap decorated with red stitches while the inner is the classic black rubber strap. To celebrate this first ever WBSC Premier12TM, the logo of Premier 12 is embedded in the case back to honor this new collaboration. This 100-piece limited edition watch has a power reserve of 42 hours as well as water resistance up to 10 ATM.
