Hublot was the first luxury brand to partner with the International Cricket Council (ICC) as official timekeeper for the World cup in 2015. The brand has now extended this long-term partnership with the ICC on all events to 2020 (including ICC Champion’s Trophy and the Women’s World Cup, with both events taking place this year).
To celebrate this sport and the partnership, Hublot have created the Classic Fusion Chronograph “The Ashes”. Several subtle details give the watch its unique character.
The dial features a few distinctive symbols directly associated with cricket: the hands of the two counters in the shape of a bat and, at 12 o’clock, a triple applique referring to the stumps. The case-back bears the Ashes series logo on the sapphire glass. The ensemble is completed by a grey color dial and strap as a reference to the color of ashes.
Finally, the calfskin strap is stitched with triple white saddle stitching in the style of a cricket ball.
The Classic Fusion Chronograph “The Ashes” is limited to 32 pieces, each one representing the number of series won by each team.
