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.

Joining Michael Clarke, the Australian team captain, in the Hublot family, Rohit Sharma, the explosive Indian Cricketer Batsman who opens the batting for India, is the latest Friend of the Brand and admirer for Hublot.

While receiving the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph 2016 ICC World Twenty20 cricket watch from Hublot, he said ““I have always been a watch fanatic; so being associated with a brand like Hublot is an absolute delight. They create some of the most incredible timepieces, unique and different, I have always been a fan, so to be on their roster and have them on mine is incredible. Their involvement in sport has been remarkable so that makes our association even more exciting.”

Hublot also sees a lot in common between the Brand and Rohit Sharma as he combines the traditional batting technique in cricket with entertainment.
Ranked amongst the top 10 batsman in the world in the limited overs Cricket and having the world record of scoring maximum runs in the 50 over format of the game, Hublot is proud to be associated with this explosive Cricketer.

To celebrate this sport and this competition, Hublot has created the 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.
