Manchester United and their new ‘official timekeepers’ – extremely expensive Swiss watch merchants Hublot Geneve – teamed up to put on a bit of a bash in  New York, which saw several members of the United squad dress up to the nines and strut down the catwalk with only-slightly-ostentatious Hublot watches strapped around their wrists…

‘Ere Ash, Cesare Prandelii called, he wants his jacket back…

This ‘ere Hublot ‘King Power Red Devil’ timepiece (the one that Nani is sporting) is the star of the show for us; a Manchester United-themed, predominantly red and black affair with green flecks on the dial – remember the flecks, we’ll be coming back to them in a moment…

Also available in black rubber…

Now, we happen to think that watches like this are utterly hideous but those little green bits have a fairly interesting back-story, being as they’re actually blades of grass that have been plucked from the Old Trafford and encased within the indeces.

Fair play Hublot, that’s pretty damn cool.
