This is the Hublot Big Bang E FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

As the long and slightly convoluted name suggests, it is the World Cup’s official timepiece.

And that means you’ll see it in every single World Cup game.

Based on the Hublot Big Bang E, the brand’s first smartwatch, it is powered by Google’s Wear OS, which means it incorporates Google Play and Google Wallet.


The watch will be worn by all 129 match officials officiating games for the entire length of the 2022 World Cup.

The list includes 36 referees, 69 assistant referees and 24 video officials.

By the way, for the first time World Cup’s history, there will be six female referees.

This particular timepiece is adorned with the color of Qatar’s flag.

Qataris call it ‘Al Adam’ and it is basically a deep, rich shade of maroon.

But don’t worry if maroon’s not your favorite color because Hublot allows you to customize it with the colors of any flag you like.

The bad news is the watch is not exactly cheap, it costs $5,800.
