Watch making giants, Hublot, have brought together some of the worlds best in footballing history this year at Baselworld. Nicknamed “Legends United” they played a “Match of Friendship” at this years show. With the likes of “Footballing God” Diego Maradona, Manchester United manager José Mourinho, 100m world record holder Usain Bolt, free kick master Roberto Carlos, French legend David Trézéguet, and many more huge stars, this was a game no one would want to miss! The two teams faced off in what can only be described as a classic. Putting on a 22 goal thriller for the spectators in Switzerland, and its only fair with competitors of this standard that a winner could not be decided! A unique display for the watch show goers, and a fantastic marketing ploy from Hublot, attracting any fan of football in to the brand with the endorsement of so many huge names. With the World Cup coming up this year in Russia, football is on the mind, and making the connection to the game is big for any brand. Hublot, who will be the official time keeper for the competition will be on show for all the world to see this summer when the event begins, and we hope to see many more great footballing performances like this one at Baselworld soon!

The game came at the same time of the release of Hublot’s new ranges that of course feature a  sense of sporty elegance that is expected from the huge brand. Hublot’s CEO Ricardo Guadalupe presented new models in the Big Bang collection, including the brand new Big Bang Unico Red Magic, the Big Bang MP-11, and then also the limited edition Big Bang Referee FIFA World Cup Russia. This is a special smartwatch that Hublot have created especially for the referees of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, which Hublot is the official timekeeper for.
