Will Kylian Mbappé be the hero of UEFA EURO 2024? Follow every moment with the Hublot Big Bang Gen3 UEFA EURO 2024

Will Kylian Mbappé be the hero of UEFA EURO 2024? This is certainly the perfect scenario explored in the new Hublot campaign film "Every second counts". 

As the final seconds of the match tick away on the dial of the referee's Hublot Big Bang e Gen3 connected watch, Kylian Mbappé crosses the pitch with the ball at his feet, toying with his opponents, before scoring the winning goal at the very last moment! A deep dive into the mind of the French team captain, wholly focused on the game, outside of time and space.

This cinematic imagining, with Kylian Mbappé – Hublot Ambassador since 2018, and ambassador for the new Big Bang e Gen 3 connected official watch released to mark UEFA EURO 2024™ – as its star, illustrates the passion for football that Hublot and UEFA share.

Way back in 2006, Hublot became the first luxury brand to invest in the sport, with the goal of promoting the best of football, its stories and its incredible moments, and allowing its community to share in these unique experiences under the banner "Hublot Loves Football!". From 2008, Hublot became the Official Watch of the UEFA EURO tournament in Switzerland and Austria. In 2014, Hublot became the Official Timekeeper for the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

Since then, the watch brand has become a crucial part of the game, firstly by supporting teams and players, then, since 2014, by providing the official watch worn by the referees and creating the fourth official's board which, with its design that echoes that of the Big Bang, has now become an iconic sight as it signals player substitutions and extra time. 2018 was another first, with Hublot heading onto the pitch by developing the perfect working instrument for the referees in time for the FIFA Football World Cup in Russia. To help them in their tasks, the referees wore the Big Bang e, a connected watch specifically designed to assist them.

An exclusive model was also made available to provide real-time updates on the score and action and can be customised with their team's colours. Six years later, and thanks to continuous technical developments implemented in close collaboration with the refereeing body of football's highest governing authorities, a third version of this formidable instrument is being released.

The Big Bang e Gen 3 was unveiled for the first time in 2022 to coincide with the FIFA World Cup in Qatar. In 2024, Hublot is continuing to express its passion for football by releasing an update to this Big Bang e Gen 3 dedicated to the UEFA EURO 2024™. 

This connected watch fits perfectly with the watchmaking codes of the Big Bang collection. The 44 mm case crafted from titanium boasts a sandwich construction, an approach invented by Hublot in 2005. The sapphire crystal is scratch-resistant; the rubber strap has a deployant buckle, and can be easily swapped over using the patented One Click system.

Its case houses a Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear 4100+ processor, ensuring it outperforms all other Hublot connected watches. Notable features include 8 different sensors and GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC payment connectivity.

The Big Bang e Gen3 is compatible with both Google Android and Apple iOS operating systems. It can also be customized in the colours of the wearer's favourite teams, the screen backgrounds and straps can be changed.

This new connected watch will allow its wearer to follow – in real time – the final phase of the next UEFA 2024 European Championship, set to take place in Germany from 14th June to 14th July, and for which 24 teams will be playing for a chance to win the championship. These include France, led by its captain Kylian Mbappé, who are looking to lift their third trophy. Join Hublot in Munich on 14th June for the opening match of the UEFA EURO 2024™. Hublot Loves Football!

The Big Bang e Gen3 Euro 24 is on sale now on the Hublot e-commerce platform and boutiques.
