Hublot Celebrates the Launch of its Big Bang Unico Special One in London during an evening devoted to duality and team spirit of football manager José Mourinho.

Hublot recently introduced Hublot Big Bang Unico Special One, a technical gem, to be produced in a limited series of 200 pieces decdicating to football manager José Mourinho, who is nicknmaed as  “The Special One”

José Mario dos Santos Félix Mourinho, better known as José Mourinho, is without doubt the best-known football manager on the planet. And with good reason, given that many believe him to be the best football tactician of his generation, winning wherever he goes: Portuguese champion with FC Porto, English champion with Chelsea, Italian champion with Inter Milan and Spanish champion with Real Madrid. A unique list of achievements to which we can add two Champions League victories and an unequalled home record, unbeaten in 150 league matches over eight seasons and 183 cup matches. Add to that his exceptional strategic gifts and a deliberately provocative sense of humour, and the result is someone who deserves his nickname: The Special One.

Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot shares, “If I hadn’t already known his nickname, I’d definitely have given him the same one after meeting him: José really is a one-off, unique in his nature and his expectations. Qualities that we share. Mourinho and Hublot, The Special Two!”

 José “The Special One” Mourinho, Manchester United manager “Today, I’m honoured to receive a second watch bearing my name from Hublot, and I’m particularly happy about this one. Since we started working together, I’ve been extremely impressed by the work ethic, technical knowledge and inventiveness of the brand’s watchmakers and engineers. Values that are very useful on the football pitch.  And above all, we share the same passion, the same madness: football!”

Pic Credit: Dave BenettJosé Mourinho is currently the manager of the legendary Manchester United. But that’s not the only team he’s a member of: he’s been part of our prestigious family of Hublot ambassadors since 2014. This partnership was celebrated in London on 28 November at an unforgettable event dedicated to team spirit. With an interview with José Mourinho expertly led by Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot; fast-paced and daring patter from master of ceremonies Mark Pougatch and a surprise concert by international artist Julian Perretta, it was a colourful evening! The highlight was undoubtedly when José Mourinho himself asked the 120 distinguished guests to unveil the limited edition honouring him, with 10 Big Bang Unico Special One watches ingeniously hidden in the centrepiece of each table.

Instantly recognisable, this version of the iconic Big Bang design is adorned in blue. Why blue?

Because it’s José Mourinho’s favourite colour. Known for his sartorial elegance, he always wears a touch of blue, whether it’s his suit, tie or shirt. So blue is painted straight onto the bezel and 45-mm polished ceramic case. Why red? Because, as José Mourinho explains, red gives character. The dial, with hints of red and black, is skeletonised so as to reveal Hublot’s famous UNICO manufacture flyback chronograph movement, the calibre HUB1242. The movement can also be seen from the back through the transparent sapphire case back and offers a 72-hour power reserve. The rubber-lined alligator strap boasts the same blue shade as the watch, adorned by red top-stitching.

A limited edition of 200 timepieces, the Big Bang Unico Special One is presented in a case worthy of its exclusivity: a box in the same blue shade as the watch itself, enhanced here and there with touches of black and red, sporting José Mourinho’s signature in the window and containing a personalised Moleskine notebook. Perfect for recording the future feats of The Special One!
