As the cricket frenzy starts spreading, Hublot, a brand known to be passionate about sports, pays a subtle yet spectacular tribute to the game with this Classic Fusion Chronograph ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
HUBLOT Classic Fusion Chronograph ICC Cricket World Cup 2019
This limited-edition Classic Fusion Chronograph ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 also marks Hublot’s role as Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of this summer’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
The Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is the second cricket watch created by Hublot. The first was produced in limited series for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, which was won by Australia.
The new watch is a celebration of cricket and picks up from the original Hublot Cricket World Cup watch produced in 2015.
Can you tell the exquisite detailing on this watch? It features a number of characterful design touches to mark the association with the World Cup and the game. The grey and red detailing found in the dial, satin-finished and polished ceramic bezel and leather and rubber strap are inspired by the colour palette of this year’s event logo; the hands of the twin counters for the chronograph minutes and small seconds are shaped like cricket bats; the triple appliqué hour marker at 12 o’clock mirrors the three wooden stumps guarded by a batsman; and the sapphire case back is decorated with the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 logo. Ok, so maybe it is not so subtle, but will surely grab the attention of every HUBLOT and cricket enthusiast this year.
The 45mm satin-finished and polished titanium case that houses the HUB1155, a skeletonised automatic chronograph calibre with a date at 6 o’clock is limited to a 100 pieces only. So, if you are a cricket crazy Hublot enthusiast, this Classic Fusion Chronograph ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is a definite must have to your watch wardrobe.
India being a bustling hub for luxury timepieces and a very important market for the horological industry, recently witnessed the launch of this spectacle at one of the best-known retailers of luxury timepieces in Mumbai – Time Avenue, by none other than the captain of the Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League and the vice-captain of the Indian National team in limited-overs formats, Rohit Sharma. A loyal fan and friend of the brand since 4 years now, Sharma surely seemed as passionate about Hublot as he is about cricket.
Well, we at HOT wish Rohit Sharma and team India all the very best for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Bring it home boys!
HOT Verdict: A definite addition to a cricket-crazy wardrobe.
