Big Bang "Red Devil Bang" is a chronograph by Hublot.


Cooperation with Hublot Manchester United led to the creation of a new Big Bang: the Red Devil Bang, a chronograph from black ceramic with 45 minutes counter, which was designed by Hublot for football and especially for Manchester United. In football a half-time lasts 45 minutes. On the dial shines the famous logo with the red devil of the English football club.

Jean-Claude Biver, the managing director of Hublot, at the presentation of this special model also underlined his commitment to the Manchester United Foundation , a foundation that helps young people by different activities linked closely to football. It involves both a better social integration and also the support of sick children. A share of the sales price of the "Red Devil Bang" watches will benefit this foundation.

Already at the football World Cup 2006 Hublot had teamed with the Swiss team; at the European Championship 2008 the company had occurred as a major sponsor. Furthermore, there had been a cooperation with the Mexican Football Federation, for which a special watch was designed. The connection with Manchester United follows this line.

The case is of the type Big Bang All Black (black ceramic), has 44.5 mm diameter and is equipped with a red kevlar insert. The watch has a rubber strap with folding clasp and is waterproof to 10 atm.
