Turin, 21 February 2018. Chosen as Juventus Official Timekeeper and Official Watch starting from the 2012/2013 season, Hublot today writes a new chapter in its partnership with the Old Lady of Italian football with the creation of a new limited edition Classic Fusion Chronograph Juventus, the third timepiece it has dedicated to one of the most prestigious teams in the world.
A result of Hublot’s watchmaking expertise and symbol of the values shared with Juventus, namely perseverance, technique, competition and excellence, the new Classic Fusion Chronograph Juventus took centre stage at an event, it goes without saying, in black and white, hosted in the prestigious Gianni and Umberto Agnelli Club of the Allianz Stadium in Turin in the presence of the CEO of Hublot Ricardo Guadalupe, the Regional Director Mediterranean Countries Augusto Capitanucci and the Co-Chief Revenue Officer and Head of Global Partnerships and Corporate Revenues of Juventus Giorgio Ricci. Last but not least, the two players from the first team Miralem Pjanic and Paulo Dybala, who reached the stage for the unveiling of the new watch.
“I’m very excited to be here, at Juventus, to celebrate the renewal of a collaboration we are proud of. Today we present the umpteenth result of the partnership with one of the most famous club in the world, the new Classic Fusion Chronograph Juventus, the third watch that we proudly wear in black&white. A new symbol of passion, energy and constant research to overcome limits. Hublot loves Juventus, Hublot Loves Football! ”
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO Hublot
“We are so proud to announce the renewal of the partnership with Hublot for another three seasons. There are so many victories that we celebrated together and we are sure that the passion we put into our work every day, both on and off the pitch, will make the difference in the future, thanks to the constant attention to details and the improvement sought through the study it is possible to make seemingly simple complex movements and gears.

and Corporate Revenues of Juventus
Proposed in a limited edition of 200 pieces, each of which sold with a kit complete with Juventus shirt autographed by one of the stars of the team, the new Classic Fusion Chronograph Juventus mounts the HUB1143 self-winding chronograph movement. An at once sporty and elegant mood, enhanced by the polished satin black ceramic case and bezel with black ceramic base that houses the carbon fibre, marked by 6 titanium screws in the shape of an H. Of course, there is no shortage of references to the world of Juventus: the symbol of the current holder of the Champions of Italy title – the 35th – is engraved on the back
of the watch, but it is also clearly visible on the dial, and on the seconds counter set at 3 o’clock.
The sweep second hand is also available in yellow, the colour of the shirt the team wears away from home. The strap, in black alligator stitched on white rubber, is the perfect accessory to complete the Juventus fan look. As backdrop to the event, a photographic exhibition will showcase the highlights of a prestigious, dynamic partnership, studded with national and international events and collections of dedicated, limited edition watches (the King Power Juventus of 2013, the Big Bang Unique Bi-Retrograde Juventus of 2015 and the new Classic Fusion Chronograph Juventus of 2018). Leitmotif, the deep ties to sport – in this case football – that distinguish Hublot, as the Hublot Loves Football campaign makes clear.
Hublot was the first luxury brand to invest in football in 2006 and works closely with FIFA™ as Official Timekeeper and makers of the Official Watch of the World Cup (2010, 2014 and 2018), UEFA™ as Official Watch of EURO 2008, 2012 and 2016, as well as some of the world’s most prestigious clubs (Juventus, Chelsea, AFC Ajax and Benfica).
