For the best part of a decade, the Swiss watch manufacturer has been making its mark on the pitch at UEFA Europa League matches as the Official Licensed Watch. In collaboration with the European football governing body, Hublot presents the Classic Fusion Chronograph UEFA Europa League Ceramic. This second piece to bear the championship’s colours has been produced in a limited edition of 100 pieces. Presented in a lightweight, unalterable, stain-resistant, and ultra-tough material that is scratch-proof except for the diamond, the Ceramic.
As the seconds counter reaches 3 o’clock, the silver and orange hands—symbolising strength and endurance—echo the hues of the trophy, and are set against the black background of the 42 mm dial and case. Driven by the HUB1153 self-winding chronograph movement, the piece is mounted on an unalterable, lined rubber strap.
This partnership with UEFA—which was initially established in 2015 for the two prestigious UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League tournaments—was extended to all its international and club competitions for both men’s and women’s football in 2019. Since then, in the hands of the 4th

Hublot is a Swiss watch manufacturer founded in 1980 and based in Nyon. For its first ever timepiece, this fundamentally disruptive company combined gold with a rubber strap in a case with a design inspired by a ship’s porthole (hublot
in French). Thus, the Art of Fusion
was born, blending tradition, innovation, craftsmanship, worlds and talents. It became the brand’s aesthetic and technical signature.
This identity was strengthened in 2005 with the Big Bang, which attested to an unrivalled know-how in terms of complications, manufacture movements and state-of-the-art materials. Carbon, titanium, ceramic and sapphire have been developed on this model to technical extremes.
This ground-breaking, high-quality approach to watchmaking is summed up in its philosophy “Be First, Unique and Different.”
It gradually led to other collections with innovative designs: Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang, Square Bang and Manufacture Pieces. These draw on high levels of craftsmanship, both in terms of the materials so dear to Hublot (such as Magic Gold, brightly-coloured ceramics and sapphires) and its manufacture movements (Unico chronograph, Meca-10 and large complications such as the Tourbillon, the Cathedral Minute Repeater and the specific Manufacture Pieces movements).
Hublot’s world extends to powerful partnerships including football. “Hublot Loves Football”
as become the slogan at the world’s biggest sporting events (such as the FIFA World Cup™, Premier League, UEFA Champions League, UEFA EURO™) and through its ambassadors. This love of football continues in art, design, music, sport, fine dining and sailing. Lastly, Hublot’s implication in joint environmental projects with SORAI and Polar Pod reflects its concern for the issues of the day. Almost 130 boutiques around the world share Hublot’s fervour and values, alongside the Hublot.com
