Gareth Southgate wearing £4,800 watch that notifies him of PENALTIES at Euro 2020
UNLIKELY style-icon Gareth Southgate has been wearing a high-tech limited edition watch at Euro 2020, that among other things notifies him of PENALTIES.
The England manager has become something of a trend-setter, tracing back to the 2018 World Cup when his suave waist coat saw sales of the M&S garment rocket.
For this tournament, he’s been sporting a Hublot watch – one of just 1,000 made – which helps him to follow matches in real time.
The time-piece allows him to view info on any match at Euro 2020, with info displayed on the large screen face including cards awarded, substitutions and goals.
There is also the option to view line-ups and player-rankings – potentially helping the Three Lions chief with his substitutions and giving him the lowdown on opponents.
Perhaps the most notable feature on the Hublot Big Bang e UEFA EURO 2020 for Southgate is the penalty alerts with any awarded in a match flashing up on the watch.
So far England have avoided any dreaded spot-kicks – but if anyone is aware of the joy and heartbreak a penalty can bring, it’s the England boss.
The stunning fashion statement features the flags of the biggest European nations around the electronic face.
There is even the option to download dials in the colours of your favourite nation – red and white for Gareth then surely.
Hublot also supply the watches for referees which as well as helping them to keep time, are connected to Goal-line technology and VAR to help them make the right calls.

While looking sharp on the touchline during England’s run at Euro 2020, Southgate has always downplayed his status as a fashion icon.
Speaking at the 2018 World Cup, he said: “I’m no David Beckham.
“I’m slightly concerned, because as a centre-half who took a lot of knocks to the head I’m not normally synonymous with being a fashion icon.”
