Top ranked German Football Club, Bayern Munich and Luxury
Brand Hublot score a partnership with their creative synergy. Together they
have created the ‘King Power FC Bayern Munich’ time piece, which is on display
in the club’s premises. Hublot, known for its Art of Fusion, is proud to be Bayern Munich’s partner and official timekeeper. Both are masters of their field and live to combine their art and traditional values with innovative vision. Hublot was the first Swiss prestige watch brand to embrace the sport of football, back in 2006, and has since made its mark in the world of top-class football through its collaboration with FC Bayern. The jointly developed watch is not just a crowning symbol of the staunch alliance; it is also an expression of the close friendship between the two greats on the playing field.
Chairman of Hublot, Jean - Claude Biver unveiled the luxury
watch in the presence of Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (Executive Board Member of FCB)
and professional footballers such as Ribery, Boateng, Van Buyten, Luiz Gustavo,
Shaqiri and Pizarro.

200 pieces. It features a 45 minute display catering to the world class
football norms of timekeeping. Running through a diameter of 48 mm with a
vertical satin finish, the King Power has the Bayern Munich logo positioned at

Crystal Sapphire treatment is visible on the inside as well as the outside. The ruthenium-coated indices are treated with white Super-LumiNova, and the brushed black nickel-coated hands have red Super-LumiNova. The date is in a window at 4 o’clock.
