Hublot Big Bang Blue
A nautical air blows over the Hublot boutiques in Cannes and Saint-Tropez, where the manufacture unveils the Big Bang Blue.
After having reimagined its boutiques in Zermatt and Courchevel as Alpine huts, Hublot is lending a nautical air to its summer boutiques. Azure blue façades reflect the Mediterranean, while the interior walls panelled in aged oak suggest pontoons, with rope handles featuring sailor's knot, display cases combining wood and fabric in nautical colours, natural jute carpeting, and sand-coloured soft seating.
Accompagnied by ambassador Lapo Elkann, Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, inaugurated these two new boutiques. Official ribbon-cutting was replaced with a traditional ship launch ceremony, with rigging and a bottle of champagne broken across the "hull" ensuring fair winds blow for these two new vessels.
To celebrate summer, a new watch is being released to showcase the blue of the sky and the sea. Housed in blue ceramic, the Big Bang Blue comes beach-ready with a blue and white natural rubber strap, or blue alligator strap, perfect for summer evenings. Under its cerulean skeleton dial, the Unico manufacture movement, and its self-winding flyback chronograph with column wheel, offer a 3-days power reserve.
Just 100 Big Bang Blue pieces are being released, initially available at the brand's summer boutiques in Cannes, Saint-Tropez, Porto Cervo, Capri and Mykonos, before calling at all Hublot boutiques across the world.
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, which is currently headed by Ricardo Guadalupe - its CEO since 2012, to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.Find out more >
