Collection EURO MMXVI - Limited to only 100 Pieces
The EURO MMXVI Limited Edition, created in special celebration of Iceland men’s national football team qualifying for the UEFA championship for the very first time. With a population of around 330,000, Iceland is by far the smallest nation ever to qualify for the European Championship. The team also made history by reaching the qualifying play-offs for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Led by former long-serving Sweden head coach Lars Lagerbäck they finished second in their qualifying group, missing out on a place in Brazil after a 2-0 aggregate defeat by Croatia. It was their best ever performance in a major competition, eclipsing their valiant effort to qualify for UEFA EURO 2000 when only a last-day 3-2 defeat in France eliminated them – but even better was to follow as Iceland claimed second place in UEFA EURO 2016 qualifying Group A to reach a major tournament for the first time.
The watch comes in a 42 mm steel case made from the finest German surgical grade Stainless Steel "316L" with a Curved Anti Reflective Sapphire Crystal and See-through Sapphire Crystal back, Blue sunburst dial with white numerals representing the shirts and numbers of the players, 11 players, 45 minutes of Game Time and 15 minutes for Half Time with white luminous on numerals and indexes, date display at six o'clock and rhodium plated hands with white luminous. It has a Swiss Made Mechanical movement “Execution Top” with Automatic winding, 25 jewels, Custom decorations, Blue screws and Rhodium plated finish which can be examined in detail, through a sapphire crystal case back. All decorations and craftsmanship is of the highest quality.

Placing Iceland firmly on the maP
Iceland's ascent as a footballing nation, falling at the final hurdle of 2014 World Cup qualification before becoming one of the first to qualify for Euro 2016, has been one of the big surprises in recent years. Despite an average daily temperature hovering around freezing for nearly half the year, Iceland has been slowly creeping toward the upper echelons of European football since the new millennium.
Iceland became the smallest nation to qualify for the finals of the European Championship thanks to their point from a goalless draw with Kazakhstan. The Nordic island nation boasts an estimated population of around 330,000 people, and 23 of their number will compete at Euro 2016 in France.
Six wins from their previous seven games proved to be a more than solid foundation and a further Group A point, secured against Kazakhstan in Reykjavik, got Iceland over the line. Prior to Iceland’s success Slovenia had been the smallest nation to reach the finals when they qualified for Euro 2000. Its population was estimated at 1,988,292 in July 2014 by the CIA World Factbook, a small number in itself but dwarfing the population of Iceland.
Northern Ireland - whose population was recorded at 1.81m by the 2011 UK Census - would become the second smallest country to be represented at the Euros behind Iceland should they qualify.
Latvia are the third smallest nation in history to have qualified, reaching the finals of Euro 2004 in Portugal. Its population in July 2014 was estimated at 2,165,165 by the CIA.
