Hublot is the official timekeeper and official watch of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, becoming one of the first watch brands to work with the ICC.
The tournament is held every four years, and Hublot was an official partner of the 2015 edition. This year, the Swiss watch company presented the Hublot Clock. The clock will be on display at The Oval cricket ground until 17 June. Then it will be relocated to Lords, the iconic home of cricket where the final will be played, until 14 July.
Earlier this year at Baselworld, Hublot introduced the Classic Fusion Chronograph ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 watch, a new cricket watch created by the Swiss watchmaker.
The 45mm titanium piece is a celebration of cricket and features a number of clever touches pointing to the tournament. The grey and red detailing is inspired by the event’s logo. The hands of the twin counters for the chronograph minutes and small seconds are shaped like cricket bats, and the triple appliqué hour marker at 12 o’clock mirrors the three wooden stumps guarded by a batsman. Lastly, the sapphire case back is decorated with the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 logo. The special watch is powered by a skeletonised automatic chronograph calibre.
Only 100 pieces will be made and will be available in Hublot boutiques from the start of the World Cup.
