Flamengo, the legendary Brazilian football club with almost 40 million supporters around the world and an icon in the world of Football. Have been celebrated in a very special way by the launch of the Hublot Big Bang Flamengo Watch.
This is the first time that the legendary club has had a watch dedicated to it, Hublot decided to perform this honour on the 30th Anniversary of Flamengos victory at the world club cup. The Big Bang Flamengo Watch will be limited to only 250 pieces and comes in the clubs famous colours red and black. The dial will feature the Flamengo emblam on the dial at 3 oclock, with the back of the case commemorating the 30 years of victory.
Flamengo was formed back in the latter part of the 20th century and as mentioned is the most popular and most successful football club in Brazil. Even the Mayor of Rio de Janeiro refers to the club as “The red and black nation” in the city’s heritage!
To celebrate this living legend and to commemorate its victory in the Club World Cup in 1981, the 30th anniversary of which takes place this year, Hublot has the great honour and privilege of dedicating the Hublot Big Bang Flamengo Watch to the club. It is a 44 mm Big Bang in black ceramic, with a few special touches of red on the push-buttons, the stitching on the gummy alligator strap, and the indexes. The club emblem is featured at 3 o’clock and a special engraved case-back has also been specially designed for the occasion. In a nod to football match timings: a 45 min counter is at 9 o’clock, to mark half-time.
