Hublot Launches Big Bang Polo de Paris

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

This is the very first time that an “80 Goals” match has been held in Europe . Eleven of the world’s best polo players are competing at Polo de Paris, in a unique event known as “The Perfect Match”.

In 2008, to announce its partnership with Gstaad Polo Club and to present its new Argentinean ambassador Miguel Novillo Astrada, Hublot had selected Argentina. A few weeks after these fruitful and cordial meetings, the famous “Perfect Match” was organized in Buenos Aires, bringing together the world’s best players. Hublot immediately made a commitment with them (and with Miguel) in the venture: which was to recreate a legendary match that had been held just once in the history of polo, in 1975, in which 8 players with a handicap of 10 (the highest qualification in this discipline) took part. The match, dubbed “80 Goals”, was held at the Centauros Club in Buenos Aires, with Hublot once again reaching the peak of the art of this sport.

In 2009, the “Perfect Match” is to be held for the first time outside Argentina, at Polo de Paris. Indeed, the Argentinean Polo Players’ Association wanted to export this extraordinary event. “Bagatelle” now offers a spectacle that is now to bear the name “Hublot, the Perfect Polo Match”. The Swiss watchmaker is delighted to associate its name with this prestigious match, which promises to live long in the memory… To mark this big premiere on European soil, Hublot has created a Big Bang with the effigy of the Paris Club, bearing the Polo de Paris logo on its dial, and with a “Hublot, the Perfect Polo Match” transfer on the back. The series comprises of 50
numbered pieces.
