Successful partnership between Hublot and Manchester United brought another great timepiece. The new Hublot King Power Red Devil chronograph has been proudly presented on the hallowed turf of Old Trafford.
After the Red Devil Bang I and Red Devil Bang II, another Hublot watch pays tribute to the one of the most famous football clubs in the world. Manchester United players, Sir Alex Ferguson and Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of Swiss watchmaker, introduced the new skeletonized chrono that has a strong symbolic value for the Man UTD fans.
Being predominantly red (color of the club), with the iconic Red Devils emblem at 3 o’clock and the red line in the center of the black rubber strap, the new King Power is dedicated to passionate club supporters. However, the natural grass color of the watch markers, got from real blades of grass from Old Trafford, make this timepiece unique. After 6 months of working on the plant material and its original color, Swiss watchmakers inserted blades into markers and then secured them by a special transparent lacquer.
The new Hublot King Power Red Devil timepiece also features the innovative chronograph movement, with two center chronograph hands, incorporated for a better readability. While the first one counts seconds, the second hand shows elapsed time on the 45 minutes track that is specially developed for football.
The specially crafted HUB4245 self-winding movement, with the superb power-reserve of 72 hours, can be seen thought the skeletonized watch dial. Protected with a sapphire glass, it features a chronograph sub-dial at 9 o’clock and a date window at 4.
The robust 48 mm case is crafted in micro-blasted black ceramic or King 18K gold. Black ceramic bezel with rubber molding is secured with 6 H-shaped relief black PVD titanium screws. Watch is water resistant up to 100 meters (300 feet).
The new Hublot King Power Red Devil chronograph is available in two limited editions (500 pieces for the micro-blasted black ceramic version and 250 pieces for the King Gold 18K version). A certificate that guaranties their authenticity is signed by Sir Alex Ferguson.
