Hublot Polo Gold Cup in Gstaad
From 17-20 August 2017, Gstaad and the surrounding fields of its airport were transformed into Argentinian-style pampas.
The Hublot Polo Gold Cup - a category 6 on the circuit - is one of the most prestigious in Europe. For the first time, it hosted four teams with a total handicap of 14 - the highest level ever played on Swiss soil. 6000 spectators felt the ground shake as 16 of the top Polo players on the circuit took to the fields creating a blur of hooves and mallets. For the 9th consecutive year, Hublot's hosts were taken on an immersive journey through the legendary world of Ferrari, which this year celebrates its 70th anniversary. In the Hublot-Ferrari pop-up store, all eyes were on the new Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Tourbillon Chronograph.
After the qualifying round on Thursday 17th August and the semi-finals on Saturday 19th August, “Banque Eric Sturdza” beat “Riva” to secure overall victory.
As the tournament's Official Timekeeper, Hublot and its Classic Fusion Chronograph Chukker – a bi-compax chronograph – counted the 7.5 minutes of each of the 24 chukkers played during the competition1. A watch designed for polo in microblasted titanium dressed in the colours of the sport of kings.

From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.Find out more
