Last time Hublot launched the Cricket World Cup watch, Australia won! I hope this time the colour of the watch makes all the difference. Team India bleeds blue and so does the new Hublot Cricket watch 2016. Let’s just take it as a sign and believe that India will win the ongoing WT20, the world cup T20 tournament!
That said, for the watch nerds, here’s all that you need to know about the watch..
Hublot is the first Luxury Watch brand to partner with the ICC for the World Cup tournaments.
This WT20 ICC Cricket World Cup watch in blue from Hublot is from the Classic Fusion Aerofusion watch collection.
Hublot blue Cricket T20 World Cup watch will be given to the winners of ICC T20 World cup tournament.
There are two versions of the Blue Hublot Cricket watch. One is in Titanium, limited to 250 pieces and the King gold (rose gold) version comes in just 100 pieces. 525.OX.0129.VR.ICC16 (King Gold) and 525.NX.0129.ICC16 (Titanium).
Several subtle details make this watch unique since, on its dial, it features four distinctive signs making direct reference to 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)
At 12 o’clock on the dial of the Hublot Blue Cricket watch is the three wicket sign. On the back side there is the official ICC World T20 logo.
A sapphire glass protects the gorgeous machinery in action. The 45 mm dial is fit for a medium to large wrist. It is accompanied with a dark bright blue strap. The strap is actually calfskin stitched onto black rubber. The stitching is of the same style used on cricket ball.
