Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, is delighted with the dynamic football Chelsea have been playing this season and has lauded the strong partnership the renowned Swiss watchmaker has forged with the Blues over the past year.
Speaking in Malaysia, where he is attending the launch of a new Hublot store this week, Guadalupe likened the football the Blues have exhibited under Antonio Conte with the core values of his organisation.
‘Hublot is a dynamic and ambitious brand, and Chelsea shares these same values in the way they play football,’ said the Hublot CEO.
Hublot have been involved with football for a decade and they enhanced their presence in the game when they partnered with Chelsea to become our official timekeeper and official watch in August 2015.For Guadalupe, the partnership between the two organisations is a natural fit.
‘Football makes Hublot tick,’ he explained. ‘To team up with one of the best clubs in England was a must. The partnership with Chelsea has been hugely fruitful and it has been a source of great excitement to see these two great names coming together.
‘Hublot loves football! And Hublot loves Chelsea!’
Hublot released a limited edition watch, the Classic Fusion Chronograph Chelsea, earlier this year and we commemorated our partnership during the launch of the All Black Pop-Up store in Kuala Lumpur with the presentation of a black Chelsea away kit emblazoned with the watchmaker’s company name and the number 10 to commemorates the 10th anniversary of Hublot’s innovative All Black timepiece.
Chelsea and Hublot both enjoy tremendous support in Malaysia and Guadalupe feels there is a strong marketability for his company’s brand in that part of the world.
‘Malaysia is already an important market for Hublot, but there is still potential for the years to come,’ he concluded.
