Hublot was the first luxury brand to partner with the International Cricket Council (ICC) as official timekeeper for the World cup in 2015 and the ICC world Twenty20 in 2016. This year, the Swiss luxury watch brand announces a long-term partnership with the ICC on all events to 2020. This extended partnership now includes the ICC Champion’s Trophy and the Women’s World Cup, with both events taking place this year.
Within this new agreement, Hublot will present prestigious collector’s timepieces to the nominated ‘Player of the Match’ in semi-finals and finals at all ICC major events as well as the coveted ‘Player of the Tournament’ award.
To celebrate this sport and the ICC competition, especially for fans, Hublot has created a new Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph edition dedicated to cricket. Several subtle details give the watch its unique character, and the dial features four distinctive symbols directly associated with cricket: the hands of the two counters in the shape of a bat (the accessory made of willow and cane designed like a short blade that cricket players handle) and, at 12 o’clock, a triple applique referring to the stumps that are placed on the wicket, which designates one of the two sets of 3 wooden posts defended by the batsmen on the pitch.
