Following the announcement on the 26th of September 2013, Hublot is proud to announce the brand's newest special addition watch, the King Power Paris Saint-Germain. Paris Saint-Germain is a soccer (or football if you prefer) team who is currently first in French Ligue 1. Enough with the partnership though and into what we all want to see, the watch. The KPPS-G's ceramic case, like so many other Hublot watches, is a hefty 48mm in diameter and, despite all the people that may want to wear it, only 200 ever will. That's right, the official club (of Paris Saint Germain) watch is a limited edition of only 200 pieces. It has the emblem of the soccer (or football) team at the 3 o'clock position and a running seconds subdial at 9. Unlike almost every other watch out there, it does not have a subdial dedicated to the chronograph. Upon closer inspection what originally appeared to be a GMT hand is actually the 45 minute counter for the chronograph. Keeping the cluttered dial slightly easier to read. The sapphire crystal has a somewhat controversial feature; both the inside and outside of the crystal is coated with AR treatment. Many like this because it makes the crystal that much clearer, but just as many if not more do not because it is easy to scratch and therefore makes the crystal appear to be scratched when it is not. The movement is the in-house HUB4245, which you may recognize was the same one used on the King Power Juventus, another soccer "club". Information on pricing has yet to be released but I will update this post when it is. The bright color scheme and huge size of this watch makes me unsure of whether I love it or hate it. Would I wear it? Not with a 48mm diameter, or price that I am sure it is going to have. Thanks for reading!
