The Champions League returned this week with the last 16, and to mark its return with perfect punctuality, Hublot, licensed watch partner of the competition, have launched the limited edition Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph 'UEFA Champions League' watch.

Do you love the Champions League? Of course you do. But do you also love special limited edition timepieces? If the answer is a resounding yes well then you’re going to feel like today is your lucky day, because Swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot, official licensed watch partner of the Champions League since 2015, has launched the Classic Fusion AeroFusion Chronograph 'UEFA Champions League'; a 100-piece limited edition in blue ceramic. And it’s just a bit tasty...

The Classic Fusion AeroFusion Chronograph UEFA Champions League has a smoky midnight blue polished and satin-finished ceramic 45mm case and bezel, and comes on a blue rubber strap. Its crown, chronograph pushers and trademark bezel screws are in contrasting polished titanium. 

One of the watch’s most striking features is its deep, three-dimensional dial. The graphic look is created by the architectural form of the HUB1155 skeleton movement’s blackened bridges, which also serve as a platform for a transparent sapphire dial. That dial is decorated with applied hour markers and twin counters for the chronograph minutes and running seconds, which appear to float mysteriously over the movement below. The sapphire under the running seconds counter at 3 o’clock is further decorated with the repeating star motif from the UEFA Champions League logo.

The watch is powered by the Hublot HUB1155 automatic chronograph calibre, which has a 42-hour power reserve. Finishing off the watch’s striking look is a blue ceramic case back with a sapphire crystal insert decorated with the UEFA Champions League logo.

Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of HUBLOT, said: ”This is an exciting day for fans of European football, who will be tuning in to the next round of UEFA Champions League games this evening all over the world. They will see the famous Hublot referee boards used by the fourth official, and from today, they can also wear the beautiful blue ceramic Classic Fusion AeroFusion Chronograph UEFA Champions League, a watch made for football fans. Hublot loves football!

The Classic Fusion AeroFusion Chronograph UEFA Champions League is a limited release of only 100 units – good luck to getting hold of one.
