ICC World Twenty20 on Hublot Time!

Categories: Partnership, News & Events, Sports

After having partnered the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2015, Hublot is proud to continue its partnership with the ICC (International Cricket Council), for the ICC World Twenty20 2016. Hublot is once again the Official Timekeeper for the competition in India, one of the key countries for the sport, this year, following the event in Australia and New Zealand in 2015. As the first luxury watch brand to partner with the ICC, Hublot will be present on the score display boards as well as in all stadium VIP facilities.

Cricket, one of the largest sporting phenomena in the world, in terms of aficionados and audience, can be said to be the most popular game in India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and the West Indies, in particular.

ICC World Twenty20 is the premium international Twenty20 competition. In total, 58 matches—35 men’s and 23 women’s—will take place between 16 teams, over 27 days, from 8 March until 3 April 2016, in India. Each match lasts about 3 hours, which is different from the ICC Cricket World Cup in which matches last for a full day. ICC World Twenty20 is a different format of cricket match where each team has a single innings of twenty bowling overs in which to score as many runs as possible.

Hublot will be paying particular attention to the performance of the Australian team because Michael Clarke, a Hublot ambassador, was previously the Australian team captain.

To celebrate this sport and this competition, Hublot has created a new Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph edition dedicated to cricket. 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) and, at 12 o’clock, a triple applique referring to the stumps that are placed on the wicket, which designates one of the two sets of 3 wooden posts defended by the batsmen on the pitch. On the back is affixed the ICC World Twenty20 symbol in a decal on the sapphire glass. The ensemble is completed by a strap in blue calfskin stitched onto black rubber with triple saddle stitching in the style of a cricket ball.
