The Official Timekeeper since 2008 for the world's most popular sports team, Geneva's HUBLOT unveiled its third exclusive timepiece for Manchester United. HUBLOT's CEO, Jean-Claude Biver, Sir Alex Ferguson, players including Wayne Rooney from the venerable soccer team, join thousands tuned in via livecast for the ceremonial debut on the Old Trafford pitch. Named the King Power Red Devil, as in the description of Manchester United's formidable abilities on the turf, the attention grabbing skeleton dial face reveals the intricate inner working of the watch. Another, of course, is the Red Devil insignia, stamped along the 3 o'clock position. One unusual design feature is the greenish hue watch indexes. Homage to the legendary hundred year old turf of Old Trafford, HUBLOT incorporated actual grass from the field to each index. Painstakingly picked by the groundskeepers, HUBLOT spent 6 months to create an unique preservation process. Making each blade of grass impervious to UV ray and temperature extremes. Measured at 48mm in diameter, the King Power Red Devil comes in either micro-blasted black ceramic casing or 18K "King Gold". Limited to 500 units for black ceramic version and 250 for the 18K gold edition.
