Four years have passed since Spain defeated the Netherlands 1-0 in the final of the Johannesburg Football City in South Africa to win the last World Cup. This year, 32 countries have gathered in Brazil to see who will become the crowned world champion and lift up the 20th FIFA World Cup.
As the official timer for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Hublot has just released the new “Big Bang Unico Double Retrograde Chronograph“. With its UNICO movement, the new Big Bang Unico Bi-Retrograde Chrono is also the official watch of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Collectors also named it “Soccer Bang”.
The movement of this watch is HUB1260, which is composed of 385 parts and beats, and the frequency is 4Hz, which is very modern. This is also Hublot’s first two-way retrograde movement with a central chronograph.
To celebrate the World Cup, the hour and minute hands have the national colors of Brazil-green and yellow respectively-and will sweep from 10 o’clock to 2 o’clock. After reaching 60, both hands will directly jump back to 0. discounted cheap men watches
The 45-minute mark is specially marked in red, indicating that half of the game is over, and the remaining 15 minutes are marked as “extra time”. A football game is divided into two halves, each 45 minutes, half time is about 15 minutes, and extra time is added to make up for suspensions caused by fouls and/or injuries during the game.best quality replica watches
