Hublot and Juventus are a pairing that stands for passion, records and sports adrenaline. Two giants, the first in the world of Haute Horlogerie, the second in football, celebrated their long-standing partnership at Crown Tower’s Monards Store on Monday 25 July, in celebration of the team’s Australia summer tour.
Hot on the heels of the UEFA EURO2016™, where Hublot served as the Official Watch, this partnership and timepiece are another example of Hublot’s love for global “football” and ongoing support of the “Hublot Loves Football” campaign launched during FIFA World Cup Brazil™ in summer 2014 as well the second campaign presented during the UEFA EURO 2016TM.
Friend of Hublot, David Trezeguet, who is currently in Australia supporting Juventus’ presence at the 2016 International Champions Cup was the special guest during the VIP celebration. Having scored 135 goals in 245 league appearances for Juventus overall, his accomplishments with the club make him the highest foreign scorer in their history. Trezeguet joined alongside Daniele Rugani and Paulo Dybala, players from the Serie A TIM 2015-2016 winning team for the occasion. VIP guests had the chance to view Hublot’s latest novelties within Monard’s shop-in-shop.
From being the first luxury brand to align with football in 2006, and for the ten years following, Hublot has led its established commitment to football ever since. Whether official ambassadors, or friends of the brand, they are all part of the "Hublot Loves Football" world. Through this legacy, Hublot maintain relationships with some of the most prestigious clubs in the world (Juventus, Ajax of Amsterdam, Bayern of München and Chelsea).
The partnership between Hublot and Juventus even resulted in a special limited edition Big Bang Unico Bi-Retrograde Juventus released in late 2015.
