New from the Official Timekeeper of Manchester United comes a new timepiece inspired by offensive midfielder #26 Shinji Kagawa: the Hublot Aero Bang Red Devil 26. Kagawa has been with Manchester United since mid 2012, and also plays on the Japanese national team. The Aero Bang Red Devil 26 is a limited edition of 50 pieces, each of which will be delivered with a signed Shinji Kagawa jersey. It has a carbon fiber “Big Bang” style case with red sapphire crystal. In a multi-year history with the Manchester United Club, this latest piece from Hublot joins the original Hublot “Red Devil” Bang from 2008, the Red Devil Bang II from 2009, King Power Red Devil Watch from 2011 (with real turf grass on the dial).

To celebrate the launch of this piece Hublot held a “celebrity shooting” for Kagawa, in which he ultimately raised the total sum of 3 million JPY (about $32,000) of which all the proceeds will be used to aid children.
