Photo Report: Hublot King Power Paris Saint-Germain (live pics)
By Thierry Ané on April 20, 2014
A few months ago, Hublot added the Paris Saint-Germain to its long list of prestigious football club partners. This very productive manufacture did not waste time as they unveiled the official watch for the team during the SIHH week earlier this year. Naturally, I presented the King Power Paris Saint-GermainWatches: Hublot King Power Paris Saint-Germain as soon as the official press release was available but even though I had a glance at the watch in January, I had to wait until Baselworld 2014 to be able to handle it and take live pictures. Whether you are a fan of football or not, the watch is really great looking and I therefore could not help but showing you the result of this close encounter.
But for those of you who have missed this model either because you do not read all my posts on Watch Agora or else because you simply have forgotten to download Watches of 2014 to receive automatic updates of all the new models directly on you iPhone or iPad, let me briefly describe the beast!
With it 48 mm case, the timepiece will not go unnoticed on your wrist despite its overall quite stealthy look. Entirely crafted in black ceramic, the watch features a sapphire dial with a blue, red and white minutes track (the colours of the Paris Saint-Germain and incidentally the French flag). The club coat of arms at 3 o‘clock uses the same colours and the original hue of blue is also used for the SuperLuminova on the black nickel hours and minutes hands and hours markers.
A nice touch of blue also illuminates the black rubber strap in the form of a single blue stripe inserted into the black rubber. Until now, Hublot has dedicated this stunning type of strap for its football-related models. We saw it on the Maradona, the FC Bayern Munich, the Red Devil, the UEFA EURO 2012 Poland, the UEFA EURO 2012 Ukraine and now the Paris Saint-Germain. Another feature of most “football” watches is the presence of chronograph pushers in two different colours of rubber, in this instance blue and white.
Very suitably, the watch is equipped with the self-winding HUB 4245 calibre. This movement with 42 hours of power reserve presents a 45-minute chronograph by central hand to time football matches. Limited to 200 pieces, this very nice model retails for €19,400.
I hope you enjoyed our live pictures of this watch.
