A 600th Home Run at Yankee Stadium

The Watch Quote™ - October 4th, 2010



New York, NY - September 23, 2010 – On Wednesday, September 22nd at Yankee stadium, Hublot, and Roberto Chiappelloni of Manfredi Jewels presented Alex Rodriguez with a one of a kind timepiece of its Big Bang King Power Black Magic created in honor of his 600th home run. At 35 years old, the Yankee star became the youngest player to ever hit 600 home runs as well as part of the elite club of only six other Major League players who have achieved this milestone.

The Big Bang King Power Black Magic features a black ceramic case and bezel with a matching black dial and superluminova markers. The 48 mm timepiece has a split second timer, power reserve and has been produced in only 500 pieces worldwide. The watch has been customized for the occasion by etching of Alex’s signature on the sapphire glass, showing the Yankee colors and the number 600 commemorating the occasion.

Rodriguez received this unique timepiece at a packed Yankee stadium before the Tampa Bay Rays game. “It is such an incredible honor to acknowledge one of the greatest athletes of our time,” says Roberto Chiappelloni, owner of Manfredi Jewels. “We wanted to honor Alex in a very special way because it is an important event in Yankees history.”

“At Hublot we love to salute great achievements and there is no doubt that Alex’s home runs show what a committed and consistent athlete he is,” says Beatrice De Quervain, Hublot U.S. President. “We hope he enjoys this unique Hublot timepiece, especially created to honor his success.”


About Hublot, the exclusive story of Fusion

Hublot made its name 30 years ago when it became the first Swiss watch luxury brand to fuse precious metals with functional rubber, sparking a revolution for material innovation and aesthetics. In 2004, Mr. Jean-Claude Biver gave Hublot a great new boost and revolutionized watchmaking with the creation of the “Big Bang”, which marked the start of the spectacular success of the brand.

Today, with the new high-tech Hublot watch manufacture he continues to write the story of the Art of Fusion with the combination of materials like ceramic, carbon, platinum, tantalum, tungsten, titanium, and rubber with conventional materials as gold, platinum, steel, diamonds and precious stones, while remaining true to the Swiss tradition enriched with the visionary creativity of the 21st Century.
