King Power


The first luxury brand to invest in football in 2006, Hublot has strengthened its ties with the sport by creating the Official Watch of the UEFA EURO 2012. The competition will take place in Poland and Ukraine from June 8 to July 1st, 2012.

The watchmaker unveiled the two official watches for the tournament—the King Power UEFA EURO 2012 Ukraine and the King Power UEFA EURO 2012 Poland, both produced in limited editions—at a ceremony on March 26 in the imposing Kiev Olympic Stadium, which will host the final on July 1st. The event was attended by numerous football and sports personalities.

Each watch has a 48 mm "King Power" case, made from "King Gold" for the Ukrainian version and satin finish titanium for the Polish version. In a nod to the football world, the face has a 45-minute counter—the duration of half a football match. The UEFA logo is featured on the sapphire crystal case-back.
